Cuisine, accommodation, money…
Guide to traveling with Jamming Adventures: Cuisine, accommodation, money… As a guide and the co-owner of Jamming Adventures, I have heard a lot of questions throughout the years of doing this job. Some of the most common of which is: what is the cuisine like? When is the best time to visit? What are the accommodations like? Is it safe there? How much money will I need for the week, and how intense is the tour? These are all valid and well-founded questions when traveling to a new country, and participating in an active holiday tour.
Food is a big part of our tour and the feedback from our guests is usually “Mmm, so good”. The part of Croatia in which we are located has a typically Mediterranean cuisine. During the week with us, we indulge in all types of seafood from mussels, grilled calamari, fresh sea bass, or lamb and pork on a spit, homemade prosciutto, cheese, and local vegetables.
Although Croatian wine is not as well known as the classic European wine countries such as France, Italy, and Spain, Croatia definitely has something to offer and is a huge part of Croatian culture. We have the luxury of visiting the Sladic family winery which produces only 20,000 liters of wine, having the chance to try their red, white, and rose wine, in the beautiful ambiance of the Sladic winery.
Best time to visit
For me, there is not really the best time to visit. Spring, summer, and fall all have something different to offer, it depends on what are wanting out of your holiday. Spring is great because of the quietness and the advantage of having the whole island to yourself. Summer with the warmer weather and warmer water, and social events, ie concerts in town, there are larger crowds. Fall is when the summer bustle is coming to an end with fewer people, but the weather and water are still pleasant and enjoyable.

Croatia is still considered affordable to North America, UK, And Australia. Prices are a bit more expensive on the coast than in the capital Zagreb, but still pretty cheap: coffee is about 10 kunas, two dollars American, beer 18 kunas, less than 3 dollars for a half-liter bottle, and dinner on average being around 100 kunas about 18 American. I would say about spending money in regards to lunch and dinner per day, you would need to spend about 300 kunas which are 47 Americans. Safety is a non-issue on the island, it’s probably one of the safest places for a holiday.
The intensity of our tour

We have no problem with people opting out or not participating in a specific day; at the end of the day, it’s your holiday.
