Visit the socially conscious Papillon Enterprise, a worthwhile business based on the idea of creating jobs for the community by exporting and selling Haitian artisan products and, by doing so, limiting the amount of children ending up in orphanages. All products for sale are hand-crafted and up-cycled, making them perfect souvenirs and gifts, with the added bonus of benefiting the community. The boutique also showcases local artworks. The attached cafe offers free wifi, and serves smoothies and snacks. PutPapillon Enterprise into our Port-au-Prince road trip site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
