Global Affairs Canada has recently elevated it’s advisory for Haiti to avoid all travel due to the reigning civil unrest throughout the country.   This is the highest level of the Canadian government’s Travel Advice and Advisories.

Considering the current level of insecurity, we strongly recommend that you respect this advisory.

Information regarding vacation packages
Given the uncertain accessibility of the road leading to the Royal Decameron Indigo Beach, Transat cannot guarantee safe transfers and has therefore stopped the sale of vacation packages, until the end of April 2019.

Information regarding flights
Until the government has reduced its alert level, all customers who have booked a flight to Haiti for the months of February, March and April 2019 are entitled to modify their reservation without penalty. Customers are invited to contact their travel agency or Air Transat’s Contact Center to adjust their file accordingly.

For the time being, Air Transat’s flight operations continue as planned.  However, the situation may change at any moment and without notice. 


Porto Travel Guide

  • The heart of the Douro Valley

    Located in northern Portugal, just 15 km from the airport, Porto is continuously evolving. Originally an industrial town, Porto also offers many pleasures to the visiting tourist, not the least of which are its bars that serve the city’s delicious namesake wine. But perhaps most intriguing is Porto’s history, making this little known city a real gem worth discovering.

Discover Porto

  • Cruise on the Douro

    The best way to get an overall view of the city and its many UNESCO sites is to take a charming cruise on the Douro River.

  • Port wine tasting

    This sweet, fortified wine has been made in the Douro Valley for more than 2,000 years. Some notable vineyards, such as Sandeman, Borges, Taylor’s, Ferreira and Cálem (to name a few), offer travellers tours and port wine tastings.

  • Outings

    Though perhaps a little quieter than Lisbon Will open in a separate browser window , Porto nevertheless offers tourists a wide variety of nighttime venues. Most people like the picturesque Cais da Ribiera area for its many cafés, bars and restaurants.

    Although Portugal’s most popular beaches are located in the southern part of the country, Porto has its own beaches worth seeing; namely, Miramar, Aguda, Granja and Espinho

  • Must-see landmarks

    There is no shortage of beautiful monuments and attractions to explore. For starters, the Mercado do Bolhão is a traditional market selling fruit, vegetables, fish and meat in the friendly atmosphere that Porto is known for. Travellers can follow that with a trip to the Palácio da Bolsa (the old stock exchange), known for its Arab Room, which is decorated in the exotic Moorish revival style. The Praça de Lisboa plaza attracts tourists with the Clérigos Church and its splendid tower, both fine examples of classic Baroque architecture and motifs. And last but not least, the Sé Cathedral, one of the first Romanesque monuments built in Portugal, cannot be missed.
