Situated in the western part of Hispaniola, Haïti shares the island with the Dominican Republic. The Pearl of the Antilles is also made up of smaller islands (Tortuga Island, Île à Vache, etc.), every one of them just as beautiful. Your stay in Haïti will take place in sumptuous surroundings, edged by long expanses of sand one moment, and rugged cliffs the next.
Marie-Jeanne Cave, an underground labyrinth
Southern Haiti is home to countless natural treasures that can be discovered on foot. Not far from the village of Port-à-Piment, the Marie-Jeanne cave is one of the most beautiful and longest caves in the West Indies.
A THOUSAND-YEAR-OLD GEOLOGICAL TRADITION
The entrance to the Marie-Jeanne cave is located on a hill and dense vegetation seems to jealously guard this curious little secret. According to scientists, it was formed about 60 million years ago. Its 2.5 miles of long passages extend over five levels and only three of which have been studied in detail.
DISCOVER THE LOCAL FAUNA
A visit to the Marie-Jeanne cave takes you down into the depths of Haiti. Guided walks lasting from 1 to 4 hours allow you to explore the 56 various chambers and contemplate the wonders of tropical nature. The cave is also home to small animals such as bats and birds and marine life is believed to have developed in a freshwater lake on the 5th level.
