I am continuing to plan our trip to Croatia for late September, knowing full well that it may have to be postponed due to COVID-19 and I am following that situation closely. Our airline tickets were purchased several months ago. So, with that said, please do not respond with negative remarks, as I am looking for advice.
As of now, we will be driving from Plitvice to Split and we have 5 nights before we need to be in Dubrovnik. We do not want a car in Dubrovnik, so my thinking is to drop the rental car in Split and then use the ferry system to get to eventually arrive in Dubrovnik.
1) What do you recommend for allocation of our time for those 5 nights? Several nights in Split and then one island? (thinking either Hvar & Korcula) Or one night in Split and then 2 nights in Hvar and 2 in Korcula? (I do understand that two nights equals one full day)
2) Favorite island of the two? Is there another island that you would recommend? We love to walk on a beach, but we are not wanting to sit on a beach. We love wineries, local cafe's and wandering villages. (not big into shopping)
3) What is your advice for booking ferries for this part of our trip? What to be aware of and what to avoid?
Thank you in advance for your help.
