Welcome to The Southwest

The coastal road used to be popular for weekend beach visits from the capital before Hurricane Matthew tore into the south, and snarling traffic made the resorts of Côte des Arcadins a more attractive prospect. From Miragoâne the road cuts inland and heads across the mountains southwestward to Les Cayes, a somewhat seedy jumping-off point for the recovering Jérémie, still-pristine Île-à-Vache and decimated Port Salut.
