Haiti Transportation

  • Be Careful with Transportation...

    I contacted Crazyhaitilady for referral for a hightly recommended driver and car that I saw listed here on VT. I got in contact with her friend Alex, made arrangements with him over the phone and via email. I never met him because he sent a substitute to pick me up at airport, (despite his promis to introduce me to the substitute driver upon my...

  • Arrival Via Cruise Ship

    My wife and I arrived in Labadee via the Celebrity Silhouette. Labadee itself is the private destination for cruise ship passengers from Royal Caribbean and Celebrity cruises. Cruising is a fun, no worry way to island hop.

  • Explorations on Foot

    Exploring Labadee on foot was a great way to enjoy the island. If we took the tram we would have missed so many hidden areas of beach along the way; which would have been a shame; they were quite nice.

  • Take the Tram

    A great way to get around Labadee is via their free tram. The tram shuttles cruise passengers from the dock area to several of the beaches, BBQ areas and shops on the island.

  • Columbus Cove Express

    The Columbus Cove Express is a tender boat that ferries cruise passengers from the cruise dock to the Columbus Cove area of Labadee. The boat ride is free and provides a nice water tour before arriving at the Cove.

  • Yes, you can ride the colorful tap taps

    Those brightly painted trucks are called tap taps and they run regular routes just like city buses. They are incredibly cheap . . . and crowded . . . but they work just like any city bus. You go to the tap tap stop, find the one going your direction, pay and get on. When you get to your stop, simply yell, "Merci" and they will stop and let you off....

  • Tap-Taps

    They call it a tap-tap, I call it an adventure! Crawl in or on these colorful truck/art canvases and they'll take you wherever you need to go. If you're looking for comfort or air conditioning, forget about it, but if you want a story to tell your grandkids, hop on! The drivers never miss a pothole and it appears as though the only traffic law is...

  • Flying and Rentals

    While in Haiti a rental is a great option, but unfortunately rentals in Haiti are very very expensive.Avis is usually the best choice, which is by the airport. Memory rent car is also a good choice on Clercine before you reach Tabarre. Using public transportation is definitely not for the average person, you will experience fatigue from the heat...

    FLIGHTS Fly from Miami or the Dominican Rep to Port Au Prince, the capital of Haiti. American Airlines flies from Miami. Air France flies once a week from Santo Domingo. It's probably best to get a 'tourist card' via the airline/travel agent/embassy before you go. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ HOTEL I stayed in the super-comfortable...

    If coming from the United States, you will probably fly America Airlines (the only American carrier to PAP) or Air France (do this only if traveling LIGHT!). There are a couple of other foreign carriers from other countries in the area, but I don't know the names. The best way to get around Port-au-Prince is by private vehicle. I would recommend...

    The airport can be a fun and a scary place all at the same time. I recommend that you hold onto your bags as tightly as possible when exiting the airport. You will be paying people money if they get ahold of your bag.I recommend that you ride at least one tap-tap (the taxi) and one motorcycle (another form of a taxi). The ride is definately...

    You can fly into the Haitian airport. Several major airlines still fly there. However, I recommend taking a cruise. There are several privately owned islands off the coast that are owned by cruise lines, and so are much safer, cleaner, etc.The only Haitian public transportation is really the local 'top tops' which are a cross between a taxi and a...

    At the time I was in Haiti, American Airlines had the monopoly on flights to Haiti. Flying between NYC and Port-au-Prince and Miami and PAP. I flew via Miami and the flight was short and uneventful--about two hours. The odd thing is that, even though the flight is so short, a hot meal was served. It seemed that the flight attendants were serving...
