/ Croatia in May
Paklenica is your venue to google for. About an hour by bus from Zadar. Lots of single pitch sport routes. Worth taking one set of nuts and a few extra slings so you can do the big wall adventures which tend to be sparcely bolted on the easy pitches. Mosaraski (sp) has 9 pitches, cruxing at F5 near the top of an amazing 300m cliff.
Hvar should be top of your island hopping list, and Debrovnik, if you make it that far south, is stunning.
Also Iglusport www.iglusport.hr is a good shop in split.

As far as climbing goes, you may want to visit Marjan as well. You'll find some nice and easy routes there. It may be a bit warm in May, but the view is magnificent. Single pitch routes in Paklenica are nothing special, so if you decide to go there, climb some multi-pitch ones. I'd recommend Karamara sweet temptations, Danaja, Oprosti mi pape, Mosoraski, Celjski stup, Sjeverno rebro (as good as it gets)...
