Winter Travel Destination: Haiti

Ready to escape the cold frigid air, snow filled side-walks for sunny skies and the cool breezes? With spring break along with Easter coming up, if you’re anything like me, you’ve already bookmarked some travel destinations. While I can easily visit Miami or Mexico for a few days, I’ve been looking into my home country, Haiti more and more.

Haiti is a Caribbean country who shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic. Many have never heard of this island, and for others, the name rings a bell thanks to the record breaking earthquake that transpired there back in 2010. Personally, a number of my relatives were directly affected by this ‘quake, of those, many perished. Since than, the country has been trying to rebuild itself and it’s economy taking a huge step towards tourism.

Haiti is a great destination for tourists thanks to numerous waterfalls, underground caves, colonial architecture, and excursions. It is a fave docking destination for cruise ships in the area of Labadee on the northeast coast. Thanks to instagram, I’ve managed to come across a plethora of companies and hotels that provide everything from food excursions, history tours, live performances to all exclusive resorts. Below are some of my favorites.

I am planning my first trip to Haiti this year and I can’t begin to explain to you guys just how excited I am. Question is, which establishment¬†I should stay in for my first trip?

While it’s easy to fall in love with the white sand beaches and emerald colored waters, as an educated traveler, take the time to check with your travel assistance provider or the CDC for destination-specific health information before you set sail or depart. It is imperative, not just visiting Haiti, but all countries outside the U.S.
