Planning your holiday to Haiti? Get inspired with these attractions and adventures worth adding to your itinerary.

Haiti is a land of bold flavours, bright colours, intoxicating music, mischievous gods and a heady mix of cultures. The only thing stronger than the rum, or so they say, is the spirit of the people that live there. So how do Haitians eat?
No visit to Jacmel, in Haiti’s south-east, is complete without a trip to the natural wonder of Bassin Bleu.
Tucked away high in the dense mountains of Haiti is Fort Jacques – one of the country’s oldest and best preserved forts.
Part of the La Selle mountain range – which also extends into the Dominican Republic - Pic La Selle is over 8,700 feet, making it the highest mountain peak in Haiti, and the third highest in the Caribbean. A single-day climb affords panoramic views over the island of Hispaniola and out across the Caribbean.
At the birthplace of the Atiz Rezistans in Grand Rue, Port-au-Prince, the studio of André Eugène is a workshop, gallery and museum well worth a visit.
A weekend at Jacmel’s annual Carnaval is the ultimate way to saturate your senses in the essence of Haitian culture. Here’s how to join the party.
