WELCOME TO CROATIA  

WITH  www.familyvoyageetsacados.com

At first glance we can say that Croatia is a country where  we can spend the holidays because there are  beautiful landscapes, the water of the sea is clear etc.... but not only!!!

Positives and negatives in a nutshell

the positive

The three major positive points of Croatia.

-The  first point  positive in Croatia is the locals, The locals  are  extremely kind and caring  towards travelers who are passing through, If you are lost,  you look for  your itinerary or others don't panic  they are  the.
​  -The second positive point  it's the climate, we left in May and it was 26° and we were able to swim 5 days out of 8 which  is  pretty good for a month  may.
​  -The  third positive point is the cost of living in Croatia which is not  raised  compared to other countries  such as the US, England etc.. .  which allows you to travel without spending too much

And there are many more....

the negative

The two  major negatives  from Croatia

-Food, we didn't find anything that thrilled our taste buds. We have been  in several restaurants and the cards are  basics  but that's good, we're not doing a culinary trip...  


​  -The language barrier, the  croats  speak Croatian and a little English but that's all but  rest assured  it's not hard to make yourself understood. 

WHAT TO DO IN 1 WEEK?

We landed  at Split airport where  a contact from the car rental agency was waiting for us  to give us our rental car.

Split is a coastal city from where  you can take the boat to visit  the islands  neighbors to spend a day there, go  to  the beach or just shopping...  Split is a busy city  of history and you will have the opportunity to visit  monuments such as Saint Domnius Cathedral, the Diocletian Palace and many other remains that date  from the time of the Romans.

 

We stayed  3 nights in the town of Slatine.

Slatine is a haven of peace by the sea and not far from Split airport, around 15 minutes by car, you will find everything you need (shop, restaurant, accommodation by the sea, etc.) to have a great vacation. The water is warm in May and there are not many people on the beaches.
