I'll be in Haiti next week to visit a friend in PaP as a first-time traveler to the country. He doesn't have a car. If I want to visit Jacmel and some of the outlying areas around PaP, what are pros and cons of renting a car vs public transportation vs taxi?
It doesn't seem like taxis are usually too expensive but I'm not sure if that would save money over renting a car. Besides that, I like driving and think you can learn a lot about a place by seeing the road culture there. I'm not…
I'm not one to get overly panicked about a travel warning but several countries have upped the security level for Haiti so simply out of an abundance of caution, should I be overly concerned about a first time visit? I was planning to fly into Port-Au-Prince, head to Les Cayes/Port Salut and then take the bus over to Santo Domingo. Any tips on getting around, staying safe, whether I should even go, and are there other sights close to PAP that should be on my list? I think La Citadelle might be a…

What are the roads between those points like these days?

Thinking about a trip in the April timeframe. Not done any research yet regarding travel visas needed for each (I am a US citizen). What kind of "fun" would I expect at the border crossing?
Thanks in advance.

Flying into Cap on Halloween for three nights. I know about the Citadelle, but wondering if anyone has other ideas for a second day in the area. Read that the Day of the Dead is celebrated around November 1 or 2, so maybe insights into a voodoo ceremony? Also, since I am flying directly from Florida, I have room to take a checked bag which I could fill with needed supplies for the local community if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks, Dave
