About Haiti

Despite Haiti’s many struggles from its troubled history and the number of natural disasters it has endured, Haitians are resilient people. This is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and any visitor that comes here will see this first hand. You’ll likely find crumbling colonial buildings, rivers and beaches teeming with garbage and many people doing what they can to survive from each day to the next. Yet, when you look past these things, you’ll notice that people here take pride in their appearance, they paint everything with colour, listen to music and get on with things the best way they know how. The world’s only successful slave rebellion happened here, and the music, art and culture that came with it make Haiti entirely unique. There is a natural beauty found here that you just won’t find anywhere else in the Caribbean. Tranquil beaches, historic old fortresses, waterfalls and mountains dot the varied landscape.
