Is Croatia worth the agro?

Lots of mixed reports, but the general feeling I am getting is...

- Yep it is beautiful but not worth it for a cruising boat as it costs a bomb and the officials will hound you and fine you wherever and whenever they can!

Is this fair?

It's been a good 10 years since I cruised there. Back then it wasn't cheap but not ridiculously priced, and officialdom not all that bad. Rapacious taxi drivers can hardly spoil a whole trip, can they? The beauty is incredible. I can't imagine they've done anything so bad that it's not worth it.

Not so expensive, a lot less than Italy or France. Beautiful and crowded, specially on the central part. The main difference for most other med regions are the beautiful medieval villages that have survived.

If you don't like crowds go on May or June. The North and the South are more beautiful than the center and not as crowded. There are more people on the central Croatia due to the main airports being there.

On the North you get more wind.

Lots of places were you can stay for the night on the buoy of a restaurant on very nice coves and considering that, the meal is not that expensive.
