I am traveling to Croatia in August with children (11-16yo). We enjoy hiking, snorkeling, kayaking and other active pursuits.
We would like to visit Montenegro from Dubrovnik - should we keep this at a daytrip or sleep in Kotor?
I know this is very rough itinerary. I'm just beginning with the first draft stage. I appreciate your help.
Day 1: Dubrovnik (we arrive @9am)
Day 2: Dubrovnik
Day 3: rent a car for day trip Kotor
Day 4: travel to an Island - Korcula (heard it was less touristy) or Brac or please recommend your favorite
Day 5: Korcula- travel to Trogir (any accommodation recommendations in Trogir?)
Day 6: travel from Trogir to Plitvice Lakes - visit PL in evening?
Day 7: Plitvice Lakes early morning-> should we then visit krka NP? not sure where to stay the night?
Day 8 : fly out of Split@8pm
3 nights (Dubrovnik), 1 night (Korcula), 1 night in Trogir, 1 night PL, not sure where to stay or what to do our last night/day.
Please help me allocate the time and the where to rent a car. We will need a car for Kotor and PL. Don't know if we should keep it for the extent of our trip and ferry to an island or not.
