Walk around at Champ de Mars, Port-au-Prince's major park and hub of political power. Afternoon crowds here provide a window into daily life in the capital, when you can gather with locals and chat with friendly street vendors and artists. Peruse the park's several monuments to discover the history of Haiti: the ruins of the national palace, a former army barracks, and statues of Haiti's founding fathers (Pétion, Louverture, Dessalines, Christophe, and Capois).

Where to stay in Port-au-Prince

Port-au-Prince offers a plethora of accommodations, though surprisingly few by the water. The most popular area to stay is in the southern neighborhood of Petion-Ville, where you can choose from a range of hotels, many with swimming pools and complimentary breakfast. The suburb of Turgeau--also in the south but closer to the coast--offers a similar selection of options. If you stay a bit farther north, you'll have easy access to the city's airport.
