There's more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedrale Notre Dame de Cap Haitien and contemplate the long history of Heros de Vertieres.

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.
