When to Go
  • High Season

If you wish to savor the best of what the Dalmatian Coast has to offer, the best time to visit Croatia is in summer, when the coast experiences mild and warm weather. Temperatures vary between 25 and 30°C. The sun is shining throughout the day, making it a perfect time to enjoy the beaches. Keep in mind that it is the high season in Croatia, which means the touristic hotspots like Dubrovnik will be hosting flocks of travelers. 

  • Low Season

If you prefer having the best places to visit in Croatia mostly to yourself, May and September offer a relatively peaceful time. The weather is still comfortably warm in these months. You will get to enjoy long hours of sightseeing in the coastal paradises of Hvar and Split, and have some quiet time on the beach.

Useful Tips for Croatia Tours

Money Matters

The currency in Croatia is the Croatian Kuna. We recommend that you wait until you go to the city center to change your money. Exchange rates are usually more favorable in the city.

ATMs are available and credit cards are widely accepted, except in some remote islands and small shops.

We recommend carrying cash with you at all times.

Croatia food advice

The Food Scene

The food in Croatia is a harmonious marriage of traditional flavors of the Balkans and Mediterranean cuisine.

Try Swiss Chard and Black Risotto, two iconic dishes that bring out the best of Dalmatian seafood.

Croatia has its own selections of locally produced wine and beer. Karlovačko and Ožujsko are the must-try lager beers.

Croatia travel advice

Solo Travels

Are you traveling alone? You can stay in a single room if your accommodation in Croatia has the single supplement option.

You can also choose to share a room with a solo traveler of the same gender.
