Travelling with our 9 year old for 2 weeks in July. Would prefer to stay in an apartment as hotels are very expensive. Would Split be more appropriate for us. We enjoy being by the beaches, sightseeing.,maybe Island hopping if not too expensive and sitting in nice restaurants people watching. It's our first time in Croatia. We're flying into Zadar airport but we thought we would hire a car to get around. We're on a tight budget and will do a lot of cooking ourselves in the apartment. Thank you.
