Haiti was virtually destroyed by an earthquake in 2010 and has been rebuilding ever since. The capital, Port-au-Prince, has shown a brave face, and a renewed energy has come back to the city. Through it all, the people have remained warm and proud.
Pétionville: The Pétionville area in Port-au-Prince is home to restaurants, nightclubs and shops, making it a destination for visitors and Haitians alike.
Citadelle Laferrière: Built to fend off a possible French attack in the early 1800s, the Citadelle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Haiti. Few fortresses like it exist in the Americas and its size is impressive, but the hike to get to it takes some energy.
Bassin-Bleu: Cascading waterfalls join three spectacular pools, coloured a vibrant blue by the minerals in the surrounding rocks. It’s definitely a popular destination but the otherworldly nature of the scene makes it worthwhile.
Côte des Arcadins: Situated 45 minutes north of Port-au-Prince, Côte des Arcadins is essentially a long stretch of white-sand beaches bordered by hotels and seaside resorts. Foodies love the area’s seafood and Creole cuisine.
