One week in Croatia; what to do?

Hello, have been considering a week long stay in Croatia in September. I went last September and loved the coast line and I want to go back. I've done Split, Hvar, Plitvice, Dubrovnik, and Montenegro. In my initial plans of my itinerary I have opted to stay in Split and perhaps a night in Hvar. I also want to visit Mostar for a day trip this time around. I could do a quick visit to Dubrovnik again but not sure. Considering that I would probably only be traveling via public transport are there any ideas people have for a week long stay in Croatia, with emphasis on the coast line/islands? I would be flying out of Zagreb at the end of the stay.

Hello Mark, I will be primarily staying in Split this time around. I've already decided to hit up Mostar, but am going to rent a car to do that.

As far as Dubrovnik, I spent three nights there last year. I was able to see the Old Town within a matter of a couple of hours. But I also did it in pieces (climbed/walked the walls right before sunset (highly recommended); went to Jerolim island twice; and spent a day driving through Montenegro, also highly recommended).

Thanks for your tips.

Hi Gabriel --
We loved the tiny island of Vis, which you can reach by ferry from Split. I think there are two ferries a day, one morning & one evening. Vis has a main town, where the ferries dock. On the opposite side of the island, accessible via bus, is a town called Komiza, which would be a great place to stay. Absolutely beautiful little fishing village. You can catch excursion boats from Komiza to Bisevo, which has a gorgeous "Blue Grotto." If you love the coast, I think you'd love Vis.

In Split, we stayed in Base Rooms, right in the Palace, which was a great location.
