This year YPT is again bringing back one of our favourites, the Haiti Voodoo and Revolution Tour.
On this tour you will experience the unique voodoo culture of Haiti, taking in rituals around the country including on the site of the original slave revolts as well as the annual festival at Saut d’Eau outside of Port-au-Prince.
If that’s not interesting enough, Haiti is a country steeped in revolutionary history being the first country to see slave uprising and rebellion against colonialism freeing itself of French rule. It of course has a chequered history in the modern period with links to Chavez’s Venezuela and its own regimes of Papa Doc and Baby Doc.
You will relax on Caribbean beaches sipping the locally distilled clairin, similar to rum, and sample street food and wander the busy markets of this Caribbean nation. On our Group B extension you’ll explore the UNESCO sites in Cap Haitien of Sans Souci Palace and the Citadelle Laferriere.
Haiti’s history has also been peppered by natural disaster, not least the 2010 earthquake which devastated the country, and you will see some of the remnants of this as well as how local people are rebuilding their lives and their country. This is a complete tour of one of the most epic countries in the Americas.
