Help a Reader Travel: Dubrovnik

Welcome to another post of helping a reader travel! Sorry I’ve been slacking in this weekly series, but I promise to continue this as many have seemed to benefit from these reader tips. As I’ve mentioned before, I have not been to every destination (unfortunately), but do get questions from friends and other blog readers on all sort of travel destination questions. Thus far, we’ve been able to help other readers travel to Maui, The Greek Islands, Pacific Coast Highway, Argentina /Buenos Aires, Costa Rica, Cape Cod & The Islands, Iceland, Geneva, Canadian Rockies, Rome, Israel, Peru / Inca Trail , Stockholm, Chicago, Paris, Hanoi, Austin, Puerto Rico, Bruges, Salzburg, Istanbul, Las Vegas, Jamaica, India/Golden Triangle, Auckland, Singapore, Moscow, The Oregon Coast, Seattle, Portland, Hawaii Islands, Alaska Skiing, Brazil, Prague, Budapest, Paraguay, Cabo San Lucas, Edinburgh, San Diego, and Hilton Head.

So this weeks travel destination includes Dubrovnik, Croatia. I received the following email from reader Jill

“I am planning a trip to Dubrovnik and would love some recommendations. The trip is not yet scheduled and I am flexible on when I can go. Is there a certain time of year I should look at? I know summer time is the best, but when is shoulder season so rates are slightly cheaper, but weather is still great? Also, any recommendations on where to stay, things to see, and places to eat? We’d also love to explore more of Croatia outside of Dubrovnik, any recommendations outside of the city as well? Thank you!

If you’ve ever been to Dubrovnik and have any recommendations, let’s help out reader Jill by commenting below.

Also, if you have any upcoming travel where you need some help, feel free to email me at to be a featured “Help a Reader Travel” Monday special. Thanks!

We are headed there ourselves early September. We are starting in Split ( I’ve been here before and highly recommend it ), then taking the ferry over to Hvar. We will stay there overnight, then take the ferry to Korcula. Will spend the night there again, then take the ferry to Dubrovnik. Amex platinum concierge sent me guides/recommendations for all those towns, as well as restaurants. I can forward with an email address. Plitvice natl park is also beautiful, as well as the northern part of the country ( eg Pula ). But an itinerary from Dubrovnik to split seeing… Read more »

I hired a driver and went to Trebinje in neighboring Bosnia. Mostar is also close and supposed to be very nice
