Haiti is one of the most mountainous islands in the Caribbean. Dense forests, tranquil beaches and Vodou culture are some of its trademarks. Although it was hit hard by an earthquake in 2010, the country is making rapid progress, in terms of travel and tourism, and is promisingly on its way to becoming the next hotspot in the Caribbean.
Port-au-Prince, the capital city, is a commercial centre and the chief port of the country. Even though the city itself is not exciting, travellers can head off to the Iron Market or Musee du Pantheon National Haitien which offers insight into the culture, tradition and ways of living of Haitians.
The UNESCO World Heritage site, Citadelle Laferrière that is perched atop the Bonnet a L’Eveque mountain was constructed after Haiti freed itself from the clasps of the French rule. The popularity of the iconic citadel is shared by the ruins of Sans-Souci Palace in Milot, which lies in close proximity to the citadel. They can be reached from the country’s second-largest city, Cap-Haitien, which is home to Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral, and various architectural pieces that speak volumes in terms of culture and tradition.
One of the most recommended destinations in Haiti is La Visite National Park, which is about 45km away from Port-au-Prince. The park sees thousands of visitors every year, and its mountainous landscape is much sought after by hikers and adventure seekers.
The town of Jacmel is the place to take part in some of Haiti’s greatest carnivals, which usually fall in the month of February. The town is dotted with buildings that take after the colonial styles of architecture, the most notable of which is the 19th-century Maison Cadet.
Tucked away beautifully, to the southwest of the mainland, is the serene island of Ile a Vache, with a lovely bay and exotic resorts.
Haiti is the perfect destination for anyone seeking an offbeat Caribbean trip. One of the most convenient and exciting ways to explore the towns of Haiti is to ride the colorful tap-tap buses. Though the country has no posh settings and futuristic infrastructure, the historical sites and untainted natural beauty is enough to leave visitors spellbound.
The UNESCO World Heritage listed Citadelle Laferrière is a top highlight.
