Croatia Travel Itinerary Feedback Wanted!

Hey all,

My wife and I are planning a 2-week trip to Croatia in July and have already booked our tickets. Our tickets are non-refundable, and we'll be flying in & out of Dubrovnik. I currently have 3 possible itineraries that I'm thinking through, but I would like some feedback/suggestions/advice if you're familiar with Croatia/Montenegro/Bosnia!

ITINERARY 1

  1. Dubrovnik – 1 night
  2. Kotor – 2 nights
  3. Mostar – 1 night
  4. Split – 2 nights (1 day trip to Hvar)
  5. Plitvice National Park – 2 nights
  6. Rovinj – 2 nights (1 day trip to Pula)
  7. Zadar – 1 night
  8. Dubrovnik – 1 night

ITINERARY 2 – SKIP ISTRIAN PENINSULA & ADD BUDVA

  1. Dubrovnik – 1 night
  2. Kotor – 2 nights
  3. Budva – 1 night
  4. Mostar – 1 night
  5. Split – 1 night
  6. Hvar – 2 nights
  7. Plitvice National Park – 2 nights
  8. Zadar – 1 night
  9. Dubrovnik – 1 night

ITINERARY 3 – CROATIA ONLY

  1. Dubrovnik – 1 night
  2. Split – 1 night
  3. Hvar – 3 nights
  4. Plitvice National Park – 2 nights
  5. Rovinj – 2 nights (1 day trip to Pula)
  6. Zadar – 2 nights
  7. Dubrovnik – 1 night

A bit about us: we're both in our early-30s, Asian American, and are the type to keep to ourselves generally. We are not party-goers, and we're very interested in traveling to Croatia MAINLY for the FOOD (#1), coffee, beaches, driving (very eager to drive an Audi), learning the history of the region, and Plitvice National Park.

Some additional questions:

  1. Are there any cities on our list that are DEFINITELY worth visiting?
  2. Are there any cities on our list that seem like they wouldn't align with what we'd like for the trip?
  3. I hate to ask this, but given our current situation in society — are there any cities/regions we should avoid as Asian people? I've been to this region a couple of years ago and, generally, people were very friendly — we're just a bit unsure & nervous.
  4. While we're near Split, would it be worth it to travel to any other islands apart from Hvar?
  5. Would it be advisable to rent bikes on Hvar and travel around the island?

Thank you in advance!
