Save Place
Ave Christophe, 60, Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Walking up to the hotel, past the vodou sculptures in the garden, I remembered another visit, another lifetime, decades ago. Wandering around the hotel, I couldn't for the life of me figure out what, if anything, had changed since then. Time comes...
Save Place
Port-au-Prince, 147 Ave Jean-Paul II, Turgeau 6113, Haiti
The brand new Marriott Port-au-Prince is located 6.5 miles from Port-au-Prince International Airport, in the city's emerging commercial district, called Haute Tourgeau. On a recent visit, it provided me with a much appreciated retreat from the...
Save Place
Kenscoff, Haiti
Bustling, intense Haiti isn’t for the faint of heart. A few days in Port-au-Prince made me long for fresh air, space, and solitude. Luckily it isn’t too difficult to leave the noise, trash, and exhaust fumes behind. Friends took me on the scenic...
Save Place
Furcy, Haiti
About an hour from Port-au-Prince, following a gorgeous windy (and bumpy!) road into the mountains, we found Rustik, an eco-friendly resort and lounge. In resourceful Haiti fashion, it's been creatively built from recycled and local materials,...
Save Place
Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Truth be told, I became quite the barfly at Habitation Turpin. I simply love the place, the hands-down awesome owners, and the diverse crowd of patrons, ranging from journalists, locals, UN-envoys, business men (and women), to the occasional...
Save Place
Petion-Ville, Haiti
Getting to know Haiti means learning about its extensive artistic heritage. In an unusual cultural spin, I grew up in a house although far from the Caribbean, filled to the brim with colorful Haitian masters. My mother had one of the oldest...
Save Place
Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti
The 'Village Artistique de la Croix de Bouquets' is located in a northern suburb in the Port-Au-Prince metropolitan area, about 40mins by car from the Marriott Port-au-Prince. I began to hear the metal clanging way before arriving, and it became a...
Save Place
Prior to my visit, I wasn't aware just how deeply Haiti is steeped in history. It was the first nation to overthrow slavery, proclaim its independence, to become the first black republic in 1804. The Citadelle, one of the largest fortresses in the...
Save Place
Milot, Haiti
Far fetched, perhaps, but I couldn't help drawing that parallel. After all, Sans Souci and Neuschwanstein each had a mildly megalomaniac king as their visionary. Henri Christophe created Sans Souci, and Bavaria's King Ludwig II, Neuschwanstein....
Save Place
Rue 24, Cap-Haitien, Haiti
Hôtel du Roi Christophe is a small, relaxed boutique hotel, nestled in a lush tropical garden in the midst of humming Cap Haitien. It's not über–luxurious, but perfectly comfortable, and it attracts travelers and business people alike. There's a...
