Discovering Haiti

Let’s face it, Haiti doesn’t have a good reputation thanks to the years of trouble and civil unrest the country has had to face. But if you didn’t know any different, this little nation which occupies a third of the Hispaniola Island may seem like a pretty good place to stay, after all it’s in the Caribbean, it’s got beaches and its tropical.

You wouldn’t be wrong, because the Haitian people are warm, proud and very respectful. With Haitian police forces slowly winning control, this may be the perfect opportunity to see a completely unspoiled island.

Haiti is the ultimate ‘live like a local’ vacation. Surprisingly,  it’s even quite easy to get here, and its capital Port-au-Prince is safer than you’d think. There are already a number of hotels set up to accommodate foreigners.
