Haiti is a beautiful Caribbean country full of history and rich in culture. Although heavily devastated by a deadly earthquake a few years ago, the country is now slowly rebuilding itself back to its charming vibe and rich culture.
Thinking of a new country to explore? Why not put Haiti on your list? Here are some of the reasons why Haiti is a fantastic place to visit:
Its unspoiled natural sceneries. Some of Haiti's most beautiful natural attractions are still less-traveled, so you can expect them to be more pristine and wonderful. Just be sure to respect these places and leave it the way it is for the next tourists to enjoy as well. Have you heard of Bassin Bleu? Its waters are out of this world.
The Sans-Souci Palace. This historical palace belonged to the late King Henri and the members of the Royal Family of Haiti. Although now in ruins, the historical significance of this palace seems to pulsate with the every second you spend exploring its walls. Don't forget to take a picture!
The people. Although the country is littered with widespread poverty, the people there still know how to smile and be hospitable. It's rare to meet a hostile Haitian, they are always eager to help out tourist and they sometimes even provide some great local tips! Encountering new people is always magical, and the people of Haiti are regal in their way.
The Citadelle Laferrière. If you want to explore and hike the mountains of Haiti, try picking The Citadelle Laferrière as your destination. This massive mountaintop fortress was made by the locals to commemorate their independence, and the view up there is fantastic.
The food. Combine French, Spanish, and African flavors and you've got yourself a Haiti cuisine. The flavors of their food will mostl likely be unlike anything you've ever tasted! Haiti's culinary world is something you simply have to try!
