“Very pretty”
Reviewed 13 July 2007

Croatia, it is important to remember, is still an emerging country, with an emerging country's problems. The massive construction sites, the subtle dinge of poverty, is masked just enough by the citizens' intense nationalistic pride. Walking around, or even just driving around, the city, it's easy to be disappointed by the amount of dirt piles and orange construction cones that have replaced the trees in many places. But to venture out onto the sea, though, is breathtaking.

I went sea kayaking when I went to Split this past summer, and it was amazing. The depressing lean-tos become shantys by the shore, the sand dunes become distant hills that one can barely see beyond the pirate-looking ships docked everywhere.

See Croatia, by sea, not by land.

“Getting there is half the fun”
Reviewed 12 July 2006

I spent 1 1/2 weeks in Croatia in June and found the bus transporation a great way to get around. It is cheap, reliable, frequent and comfortable. I went to the bus terminal on the waterfront daily and picked a spot and went. I was able to go to Sibenik, Vodice, Baska Voda, Makarska, Omis and Trogir (a must see).

The ride is fantastic along the coast, very similar in fact to California's Pacific Coast highway. Along wtih the Ferries I would state that Croatia is an easy ride!

I would also recommend DUPLANCIC TINO a hostal 10 min from the bus station right next to the market and centre of town. I paid 26E a night, clean, comfortable and modern.

“Beware speed traps!”
Reviewed 9 April 2006

If you drive between Split and Dubrovnik, you need to travel through a short section of Bosnia-Herzegovina. There is a ridiculously low 40kmh speed limit at Neum, so be very careful.
The Bosnian police speed trap on a downhill on the south side of the town, using radar. They are quite scary to deal with.
