Haiti Travel guide
Haiti shares the island of Hispanola, (from Spanish ‘Isla Espanola’ the Spanish island) with Dominican Republic. The country has had its share of troubles and is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, however around a million tourists visit each year to experience the rich culture and history.
Haiti has an abundance of unspoiled white sandy beaches and natural landscape and there are a growing number of hotels welcoming visitors across the country.
Popular destinations include Jacmel, with its French colonial era architecture and annual Carnival, the coastal town of Port Salut, and Île à Vache once a pirate stronghold, now a paradise for nature lovers and those looking to get away from it all.
Cruise ships call in at Labadee, a port and a 260-acre private beach resort located on the country’s northern coast leased long term by Royal Caribbean International. Visitors enjoy water sports and leisure activities.
