The Citadelle Lafemere stands proudly on the top of Mount Bonnet a L’Eveque, a large fortress that has appeared on currency, stamps and postcards. It’s an impressive sight, but it’s not just the stone buildings high above sea level that make this country unique. Locals will welcome you with open arms and are more than willing to teach you about their culture. Learn about making traditional Haitian rum or Kasav (flat bread), experience the vibrant art scene and carnivals that are ever present in Jacmel and look out for the paper mache decorations for sale in the local artists’ studios. By contrast, nature creates artwork of its own at Bassin-Bleu. The turquoise blue waterfalls and pools will have you reaching for your camera, or a bathing suit if you want to jump in! Whether you want a traditional homemade meal, history lesson, or city tour, you’ll find it in Haiti.
