This is something you better double check with your local host, but summers down there are busy and I think you will have no problems doing this. According to this site, there are buses Makarska to Vrgorac (Polasci iz Makarske; the * says this line does not operate during WINTER Sat, Sun and holidays).

May I ask why you want to get to Vrgorac? Vrgorac doesn't show up on the forum much and was just wondering.

I see Mary’s location is Auckland and most of Croats in New Zealand are from Vrgorac-Makarska region.

She is probably looking for family roots :)

Hi Mary, they are bus twice daily workdays during winter schedule from Makarska to Vrgorac (at 11:35 and 15:00 - http://www.promet-makarska.hr). They is very affordable accommodation on entrance to Vrgorac, small Inn/Motel Portal with restaurant (www.restoran-portal.hr) and don't forget to test locally cooked roster, it is a specialty there, nice local wine from Vrgorac and excellent prosciutto's and roasted lambs.
