Port-au-Prince

— 3 nights
Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti, gives most visitors their first taste of the country, along with all of its rugged and lively charm.
Explore Port-au-Prince's surroundings by going to Place Saint-Pierre (in Petionville), Village Artistique de Noailles (in Croix-des-Bouquets) and Montrouis (Kay Piat & Museum Ogier-Fombrun). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Musee du Pantheon National Haitien, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Notre Dame Cathedral Ruins, don't miss a visit to Champ de Mars, and browse for treasures at Papillon Enterprise.

The culture of Haiti has always been the reason for people to visit, and it will be the reason people visit in larger and larger numbers as the nation heals from the devastating effects of the 2010 earthquake. The interesting tale of colonialism, revolution, and political struggle has left Haiti with a wealth of historical sites and cultural influences. Sightseeing in Haiti offers perspectives on the many stages in the country's history, with colonial forts standing in ruins and monuments memorializing the revolution. The music, the art, the folklore, and the cuisine of Haiti all deserve to be explored in person.
