Introducing Croatia

Once a secret destination of in-the-know travelers, Croatia is bursting upon the international scene. And for good reason: This small country on the shores of the Adriatic Sea has more than its share of natural wonders, beautiful coastline and picturesque islands.

Where should I go in Croatia?
Highlights of Croatia include beautiful Plitvice Lakes, the historic cities Dubrovnik and Split, and its more than a thousand islands along the beautiful Dalmatian Coast including Hvar, Korcula and many others. Whether you're into local cuisine, natural wonders, history, nightlife or active adventures, Croatia has lots to offer for travelers who seek unique experiences.

Getting around Croatia
Croatia is a relatively small country. Getting around by rental car or ferry (to its many islands) is easy. Read more

This was my first solo travel experience and Marina ensured it was a memorable one. From the beginning she helped plan a wonderful itinerary tailored specifically to my interests. She provided all the information and details I needed before hand to ensure I was prepared for my trip. When my cousin decided to join me in Dubrovnik, Marina was kind to ensure it’s feasibility. Marina also went the extra mile in providing me with her personal number, checking in with me to ensure I was Ok during the trip. I am grateful for her local knowledge and recommendations. Marina was so kind to show me around her beautiful city of Trogir. I spent the morning there and it felt like I was catching up with an old friend! Apartment Sara in Split was ideal! Sara, the owner, kindly met my Uber at the bus stop. Located 5-7 minutes walk from the port and the Palace, this was ideal for me! Milk, fresh fruits and coffee were already in the apartment and Sara pointed out the grocery and two 24-hr bakeries just outside the apartment. Sara gave me the first wonderful restaurant recommendation of the trip Bokamorra and how to easily get to Marjan Hill. My first tour, Diocletian Palace, was guided by Tanya. Though the weather was not the best, I had a wonderful time with Tanya learning about the city of Split. We genuinely lost track of the time! I felt like a local after the tour, finding restaurants and walking around the Palace like a pro, enjoying an early morning coffee watching people start their day on the Riva and in the Palace. Zipline In Omiš was fabulous! Our guides Domina and Josef were amazing! They were friendly, skilled and helped with all the pictures and videos! Toni and Frana (sp?) from Portal Tours did a wonderful job of the visit to Plitvice National Park. I spent another wonderful day in Salona with Nina learning about the Roman ruins and more about Croatia’s history. She was also very kind to offer me a return ride to Split! It was then on to Dubrovnik via bus. The journey was pleasant though had many stops. Crossing the Croatian and Bosnian borders were seamless. Apartment Franka was the perfect location inside the Old Town but in a quiet section (and a bonus of the Storia pizzeria and Gianni ice cream just steps away!). The Dubrovnik walking tour with Ivana was truly enjoyable. Ivana was friendly and very thorough! She provided a wonderful description of each part of the town with interesting stories from a local perspective. My cousin and I walked the Walls the next day as well as took the cable car to Mount Srd and were in awe of the beauty of Dubrovnik. Next, Marina guided us on an excellent Dubrovnik food and wine tour. She provided us with information on both Croatian food and history. We visited 4 establishments, with generous portion sizes of typical local dishes and wines. My visit to Croatia was everything I expected and more! I highly recommend kimkim and Marina if you are planning a visit to Croatia. You are guaranteed a vacation that is tailored specially to you!
