Always wanted to meet a medicine man? Or do you want to see what’s happening on the mysterious cemetery of Port au Prince? Let your dreams come true with our second annual tour to Haiti.
You can’t particularly call Haiti the lucky kid in town. The country has been known for its poverty (it is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere), the dictatorship of the Duvalier-family (Papa Doc and Baby Doc), and most recently the 2010 earthquake. However, the Haitians are not let down by all these events. The last few years the country has been trying hard to overcome its negative image and to show a different Haiti. Beautiful Caribbean beaches, Vodou (in the old spelling Voodoo), rum, great architecture, and a beautiful landscape all prove that there’s more in stock for this half of the Hispaniola-island. Neighbour country the Dominican Republic is more well-known as a holiday destination where many Western tourists touch-down every day. By starting and ending the trip in DR you can see all the differences. One moment it feels like you are in Latin America, the other moment it might have been Africa as well.
This itinerary continues on from the Cuba tour and can be done stand-alone or as an extension.
