Two Week Croatia Road Trip

A Day in Plitvice Lakes National Park

A 3-Day Guide to Dubrovnik

Once at the forefront of the new world, the Dominican Republic still holds remnants of its colonial past, whilst also adding in a more contemporary Caribbean twist. Start your adventure in ‘La Capital’, Santo Domingo, walking back in time along the cobblestone streets of Zona Colonial where the conquistadors once roamed. Outside of the tourist hotspots, the sounds of life ring out in the streets.

If you’re looking for that picturesque white-sandy Caribbean beach, look no further than Punta Cana, where tourism reigns supreme. If you happen to visit the DR in February, head up to Penísula de Samaná, where you’ll find one of the top 10 whale-watching destinations. Further north, lies the beautiful, cosmopolitan town of Las Terranas, with its golden sandy beaches, aqua blue waters, and European undertones.

If you came to the DR for surf and all things watersports, you’ll feel right at home along the North Coast, particularly Cabarete, with the best winds and surf on the island. Further inland lies the jaw-dropping 27 waterfalls, along with expansive dry deserts and jungly nature reserves waiting to be explored.

3-days in Dubrovnik: Dubvrovnik old city walls

When to visit?

If it’s warm weather you’re looking for then it’s best to travel to Croatia between May and October. In the winter months, the Coastal areas tend to stay fairly mild but inland can get very chilly! We visited Croatia at the end of July and although we had a few rainy days in the North of the country, it was lovely and sunny for most of our trip.

Currency – The official currency is Croatian Kuna (kn).

Money – ATMs are widely available. Credit and debit cards are widely accepted in cities and tourist areas.

Language – The official language of Croatia is Croatian

Getting Around –  Travelling around Croatia is pretty easy. Renting a car and driving is the easiest option with the most flexibility. This is what we did and the roads were really great to drive along, just be aware there are tolls for motorways in Croatia. If you choose to travel on public transport then the bus is the way to go. All major cities have bus stations and you can get to most areas of the country from these. Train links aren’t as good throughout Croatia and don’t service all areas (including Dubrovnik).

Internet Access – Most hotels, cafès and restaurants have free wifi. If your data roaming includes the EU then you will be able to access the mobile network pretty much everywhere you go.

Safety – Crime rates are very low in Croatia. The usual pickpocketing and theft are things to be aware of as with most major cities but Croatia is not known to be a place where this happens often. As long as you’re vigilant and keep valuables hidden you shouldn’t have any problems.

Health – Before travelling  hepatitis A and B, Tetanus and Rabies vaccines are recommended. For further information check out this website.
