So from a previous question I asked I understand that Zadar airport is near to Plitvice lakes national park. Does it make sense to stay in Zadar and do a day trip? Or should we stay by the park? Also would it make sense to go to Krka National park using Zadar as a base? We then want to travel down to either Split or Dubrovnik . Is this a good plan? I'm guessing the best thing to do is hire a car.
