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.
Port-au-Prince, former colonial port
Founded in 1749, the city of Port-au-Prince was not made the capital of Haiti until 1804, following the separation of the island of Hispaniola into two separate countries.
LIKE A PHOENIX
Following the 2010 earthquake that destroyed part of the country, Port-au-Prince is rising from the ashes. During your stay, you can stroll through the city’s streets with their colourful facades and discover the "iron market", built in the style of French market halls. Its stalls are stacked with tropical products.
IN TRIBUTE TO ITS HEROES
The history of Haiti's independence is explored at the Musée du Panthéon National (MUPANAH) in Port-au-Prince. Inside, a pantheon preserves the remains of the Fathers of the Haitian Homeland, including those of Toussaint Louverture. The other two rooms of the museum display objects and works commemorating this emancipation movement.
