Flights to Haiti

  • Tourism’s best kept secret

    Independent since 1804, Haiti was the first black republic in the world. Tropical vegetation, coral reefs, multicoloured fish, waterfalls and grottos are just a few reasons to book a flight to Port-au-Prince airport and tour this beautiful country.

Discover Haiti 
  • Port-au-Prince and Pétionville

    Seeing Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital city, aboard a tap-tap (minibus) is a must. Numerous art galleries, artisanal boutiques, good restaurants and quality hotels can be found in Pétionville.

  • Beaches

    The 2-km Pointe-Ouest Beach is Haiti’s most legendary. It’s ideal for swimming, snorkelling or relaxing on the white sand. Coco Beach, near Labadie, is one of the Caribbean’s principal seaside resorts.

  • The islands

    Many of Haiti’s islands are acclaimed, notably Gonâve Island and TortugaÎle à Vaches, in addition to its beauty, is overflowing with archaeological relics. Several boats have also sunk on the reefs to the north-east of the island.

  • Mountains

    Haiti is endowed with two mountain ranges, in the north and in the south. The Pic la Selle peaks at a height of 2680 metres. Bassin Bleu and its mountain river can be found just north of Jacmel.

  • Waterfalls and grottos

    The Hinche caves are a must-see when visiting Haiti. 30 metres high, the Zim waterfall pours into a dazzling blue pool. Pictograms attributed either to the Amerindians or to African slaves can be seen in the caves.

  • Cap Haitien

    Cap Haitien is a town situated in the north of Haiti. Rich in history and architecture, this community is a draw for tourists interested in getting to know the country’s culture.

  • 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.

  • Carnavals

    Jacmel’s Carnival is very popular, and the one in Port-au-Prince is a draw because of its music and dancing. At Easter, there’s a celebration of the sea in Pestel. In all of Haiti’s towns, “rara” processions (voodoo) begin during Lent. Country fairs and patron saint festivities coincide with voodoo celebrations.
