Haiti is a country rich with sheer resilience and determination found amongst its people. Its spirit can be felt amongst the interactions with the locals, in the food you eat, as well as the moving festivals that are celebrated, such as Fet Gédé Vodou. Haiti’s unique attractions create an off-the-beaten-track paradise that deserves to be marvelled at.
Yes, Haiti has been troubled with years of civil unrest and natural disasters, including the earthquake of 2010. Yet, it perseveres as the nation proves its determination to rebuild itself. In fact, many of the attractions are well preserved and can be encountered by those who dare to journey to this bountiful destination.
The city of Cap Haïtien, nicknamed “The Paris of the Antilles”, is home to stunning architecture and a palatable love for art. Nestled on the northern coast of the country, the city holds many stories of Haiti’s past during colonialism and its march to becoming an independent nation. Popular attractions in Cap Haïtien include the Citadelle Laferrière and the Sans-Souci Palace.
The capital city, Port-au-Prince, is designed similar to that of an amphitheatre. Port-au-Prince’s tropical landscape is abundant with incredible sights and activities, including art, shopping, Boutillier (scenic views at the highest point of the city), and Jalousie in Colours (hundreds of homes painted in a range of colours).
