  • Sunset Sail Away

    One of my favorite memories of our trip to Labadee was sail away. We had an aft balcony suite on the back of the cruise ship which was perfect for pulling out of port. My wife and I enjoyed watching the sun set as the island grew smaller in the distance. It was a beautiful sunset and a definite moment to remember.

  • Haiti is an adventure

    Walking the roads, streets and market pathways is for me a must for a visitor to Haiti. Much of this experience is similar to that found in other underdeveloped countries with intensive street activity, but there is a Haitian flavor. People are open and friendly. I did not find them excessively aggressive, but if you are used to passing by people...

  • Camera

    There are not that many Whites in Haiti and people look at me like an alien, especially children. But when they see you have a camera, things change, because they love to be taken on a photo. These were very dissapointed that I could not hand it out to them, they were obviously used to polaroid instant cameras! But a digital camera, where they can...

  • rural population

    The way to the market is long and dusty, and public transport is not organized, but the Haitians are always friendly. Have a look at the travelouge for more info on Haiti. A colourful country with beautiful people and lots of art like music, paintings, etc.

  • Haiti - the flag

    This is the flag of Haiti, and it is on a small badge I bought for my collection.A lot of people think that Haiti is an island all for itself...BUT it is just the western part of the island HISPANOLA, and shares that island with the Dominican Republic.

  • What a poor living !

    ...and on the other side there was the poor population, garbadge all over the streets. And a big market area, where most of the merchants could offer only a very few potatoes or fruits and sat there a long time before selling anything.

  • Get a guide.

    I strolled to the area of docks and markets. Black,sweating, muscular bodies were carrying enormous loads from ship to shore. Water was being transported on the heads of small ragged girls to home-made slum houses. Plump women dressed in jazzy browns and reds were selling scrawny chickens. The streets smelt of Africa at its most raw, squalid and...

    Go see some of the unspoiled beaches that are there. We didn't really get to do much 'tourism' while we were there. But, there are some beautiful beaches. We would usually go to Labadi beach, a private beach that was owned by Royal Caribbean that would cost about 2 dollars for us to use. Very relaxing to go there, and get away from the craziness of...

  • Rick_U.S.'s General Tip

    Working on a mission home and a school in Jeremie was some of the most satisfying work I have ever done. Here in this picture you can see some of the unique building practices. The poles were holding up small inter-twined branches that cement was poured on to create the second floor.

  • The beauty of Haiti will...

    The beauty of Haiti will almost never be seen by the average visitor, because it lies outside of the main cities and travel in the country is very difficult. If you have a chance to get off the beaten path and go into the more rural areas - even if just around the capital city of Port-au-Prince, do so. I grew up here, so I have too many fond...

    Be open-minded. Haiti suffers from extreme poverty, but the people are genuinely friendly and generous. Haitians have a love of dance and music that's incomparable--check out that Compas music and the steamy dancing! Haiti is in recovery from some dark days, but the Haitians have a love of life that's strong. The friendly children!!

    This was one of the ports of call on my first cruise. It was the saddest place I have ever seen in all my travels. The starving people, the lack of employement, the military rule, etc. I believe Baby Doc was in power then. I only hope it is a better life now for the Haitians.
