Why is Croatia better than the Caribbean?

Croatia is definitely the European Caribic situated in the Adriatic, with its 1185 islands and islets (some of them still uninhabited) and extensive shores this Central European country has been Europe's Prime Location for Island hopping and small cruises with private boats. The Caribbean by comparison has around 115 islands and approximately 2000 rocky islets.

But let’s start with the showdown:

No.1 - THE BEACHES

Even though both have crystal clear azure blue and emerald waters, obviously those white sandy beaches have a special charm.

No.2 - TOWNS TO EXPLORE


The unrivaled charm of rich history spread all over its picturesque towns from ancient Greek temples to Reinassance architecture definitely wins over the Caribbean (mostly car jam packed and crowded) towns.

No.3 - SAFETY


No further explanation needed. ;) Sorry.

No.4 - FAMOUS STAGES


The town of Dubrovnik is the set of King's Landing (Game of Thrones) while Pirates of the Caribbean sequels have been filmed on the Caribbean. 

No.5 - FOOD

Caribbean cuisine is a fusion of African, Amerindian, European, East Indian, Arab and Chinese cuisine while Croatian cuisine is a fusion of Turkish, Austrian and Mediterranean cuisine. Both are delicious so this is definitely a tie!
The Result: CROATIA 49 points vs. CARIBBEAN 41 point
Croatia definitely beats the Caribbean!
