We are a couple in our early 60s, would like to visit Croatia this September/October but want to combine beaches (snorkelling, fishing, boat trips) and sightseeing (mainly historical). We prefer independent travel, happy with hotels or apartments but must be good standard – and car hire. Anyone got any tips to offer on combination of places (ie Dubrovnik/Istrian islands), car hire, recommended hotels, eating out llanguage – and money – best way to take it? We have two to three weeks hols. We’re well travelled generally but this would be our first time in Croatia so want to get it right! Any tips much appreciated…. charliecanary.
well, I can suggest you a good source for 1st timers. There you can find pretty much everything you asked for, thers also a big list of Croatian tourist agencies, i em sure they can provide more info about car rental.
