Travel with Children

The congested and trash-strewn streets of Port-au-Prince aren't exactly an ideal place for kids, and most hotels in and around the capital don't offer kids clubs or playgrounds. But Haiti's less hectic north, with the Citadelle and plenty of secluded beaches, would certainly appeal to young people and laid-back parents. Jacmel and Kabic would also be of interest to families looking for a beach escape with some culture to boot. One issue to consider would be the cost – most hotels in Haiti charge extra for additional guests in the room, and private transport (the only way you'd want to get around with young children) is expensive.
