Haitian Tourism

Don’t believe Haiti can be recommended as a tourist destination at this time. I know one gentleman who travels there from time to time on business; he always makes it a point to hire a couple of off-duty police officers as an escort. Downtown Port-au-Prince should be avoided. If one must go, try suburban Petionville. The Hotel Montana is worth a look.

Haiti does not sound very safe if you have to hire body guards.

Haiti is certainly no place for the casual tourist at the present time. The Dominicans next door are so concerned with keeping the Haitian influence out, crossing the Haitian-Dominican border is like crossing the Berlin Wall. (Independance Day in the DR celebrates independance from Haiti, not Spain; no love lost there.) Believe the only solution is for Haiti to be administered as a United Nations trusteeship. I see this as a minimum ten-year project from start to finish, allowing time for the reconstruction of the physical infrastructure and the development of functional governmental institutions, starting at the municipal level.

That is very sad news about Haiti.

It sounds like the Haitian People have a “Tough Road” ahead of them with a lot of uncertainty.

Our chruch has a missioanry in Haiti and it definitely is not a tourist destination at all. Our missioanry is in a “safe” part of the country but has been broken into several times, had to get out a few times as well.

Hey PastorAsh

That is incredible that your church has a missionary in Haiti.

It is amazing to see that “People of the Cloth”, so to speak will risk their lives to help out those that need the help.

When I was just a teenager we went on a Cruise and one of our stops was Haiti. Not many people got off the Ocean Liner to see Haiti.

We were considered upper middle class in Canada and my parents wanted my brother and I to see how people in other Countries live.

I fell in Love with the Haitian People and kept in contact with a couple of people I met there for at least two years. Then the letters stopped and contact was lost.

I would really Love to go back to Haiti again, but when it is safe to do so.

PastrAsh, You and your Church keep up the good work and if you ever return to Haiti, be careful. We want you to return home safe.

All we can do is “Say a little Prayer” for them.

We go there on vacation and have not experienced any problems.
