We are going to be in Dubrovnik for three nights in early May. We were hoping to get to Mijlet park for a hiking day, but the ferry schedule is still in low season and unfortunately does not work with our schedule. Similarly, our hotel quoted a VERY expensive price for private transfer. I tried explaining that we just needed transfer and not an entire tour, but there seemed to be some confusion. We are staying just outside the city for two nights at the Sheraton, and one night in the city before we continue on. So I guess I have three questions:
1) What day trips would you recommend? We enjoy hiking and being outdoors and prefer non-touristy things, but are open to them if they seem really great.
2) Does anyone have any good restaurant recommendations for Dubrovnik?
3) Does anyone have any good recommendations or experiences with a moderately priced private transfer?
Thanks in advance.
