Home - About Haiti

If you like history, culture, adventure and you want to be stimulated by the new and the different, it’s time to EXPERIENCE HAITI.

Ayiti means mountainous land in Taino language, a community who lived in Haiti for 700 years before the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1492. Today, Haiti’s landscape continues to be one of her strongest assets. Green verdant mountains rise 2,763 metres in to the sky on the south and west coasts providing a rich flora and fauna, 26 endemic birds, 120 varieties of mangoes and spectacular water falls.

Haiti was a key tourism destination in the 1970s. The first flights came from the Bahamas, and then tour operators from Germany, Switzerland and France began offering Haiti as an extension to Bahamas, before they started to have flights direct to Haiti and full package tours were offered. Port-au-Prince played host to many cruise ships as well. In the 1970’s, travellers began to take extensions from Haiti to the Dominican Republic. The departure of “Baby Doc” in 1985 and subsequent embargos led to a decline which Haiti did not recover from.

Hurricane Matthew hit the south and south west of Haiti on the 4th October 2016. Whilst areas around Les Cayes and Jeremie have been badly hit, the tourism areas of Jacmel, Port-au-Prince, Cotes des Arcadin and Cap Haitien continue to receive visitors. The best way to help is to travel and spend your money in Haiti. Alternatively, buy Haitian art as a way to help stimulate trade or find a charity to donate through by visiting (www.why-haiti.org)
