Hi there- I am traveling to The Dominican and Haiti right after xmas. I am having trouble finding info on traveling by land between the countries. I will be flying into Punta Cana and would like to make my way up to the northern coast of Haiti (laregly due to the hurricane). I am having difficulty finding info on busses, routes, times, distances and costs. Can anyone give me an idea of lengths and costs of traveling by land from DR to Haiti? Thanks, Kari
This is just a brief post to remind anyone considering heading to Haiti to help with hurricane relief that the conditions in the affected areas are exceptionally difficult; resources are scarce (in the affected areas), transportation and security are spotty, lodging and other comforts very limited.
Please think carefully about heading down. Are you fully vaccinated and prepared to encounter cholera, zika, malaria, injuries, etc., w/o access to prompt medical care? Do you have the needed skills…
Greetings. My boyfriend and I will be traveling to Haiti for the first time in November and are interested in hiring a driver to pick us up from the airport and transport us to a residence in Jacmel. We are seasoned travelers and would not normally shy away from public transportation, but would like to make the trip as easy as possible since it will be our first time there.
Does anyone have recommendations on tour groups or trusted drivers? Normally I would try to arrange through the hotel, but…
My wife and I are working in Hinche and wanted to do a little sight seeing for a long weekend (Friday to Monday or Tuesday). We wanted to get a different perspective of Haiti as Hinche can get pretty claustrophobic. Any thoughts on which destination would be more relaxing, Cap Haiten or Jacmel? And which of the two trips would be less of a headache traveling as we're looking to minimize the headaches of travel? We'll have other opportunities as we'll be here until December so we're just…
This is my first trip to Haiti. So, please forgive my lack of knowledge.
I have booked 5 days in Haiti next month. My goal is to go to go to Jacmel, Parc National La Visite and a day in PAP.
I see that I can rent a car at the airport. Is this safe for a seasoned traveler to travel down to Jacmel & Parc National La Visite? How about PAP?
If I had a driver, is USD100/day an accurate price?
Can you recommend a guide, place to stay and suggested route in in Parc National La Visite?
My spelling could be off. But on a budget - give or take a couple bucks - $100 per night - does anyone have a favorite spot in Petionville ?
Also - how far is Petionville from near where the Marriott is ?
And another also - does Petionville have a decent variety of restaurants and does anyone have a particular favorite?
I am travelling with a friend to Comlombia (from Paris) and we are wondering how to go to Port au Prince cheaply (but with security in mind!) since we have a friend in Haiti. Is there some cheap flights? There only seem to be flights from Bogota to Miami, then to Port au prince...
Have any of you done this trip and how did you make it? Do you have special tips?
Thanks a lot in advance!
Good day. I have been to the DR many times over the years, and want to try something different. However I am not sure where to start. This will be a short trip (1 week) so this time I probably only have time for 1 or 2 places to see maximum.
Should I just go to Cap and stay there. Or, should I go to PAP stay in Pentonville for a couple days and then catch a ride to Jacmel?
If I decide to hire a private driver from PAP to Jacmel how much could I expect to pay? How long is the…
