Central Haiti covers the central and eastern section of the country, and is home to the capital, Port-au-Prince.

Cities[edit]

  • Hinche
  • Kenscoff — a cool mountain retreat from the hectic life of Port-au-Prince.
  • Mirebalais
  • Pétionville — the wealthy side of Port-au-Prince, just to its south.
  • Port-au-Prince — the big chaotic capital that needs no introduction.
  • Saint-Marc — a busy port serving the populous north central section of the country.
  • Verrettes — a small city with low crime and a busy live music/nightlife scene.

Other destinations[edit]

  • Gonâve Island — Haiti's largest island is a nightmarish vision—the island is ecologically devastated and overpopulated with, essentially, the poorest of the poor who were forcefully relocated by the government to here from Port-au-Prince. Less than a third of the island's population has access to potable drinking water. There are no tourist attractions on this one-time tropical island paradise; no hotels.

Beaches[edit]

  • Wahoo Beach Not really close to Port au Prince, this beach is often listed as being in the city. It's about a 90 minute drive from Port au Prince, but a beautiful drive on new roads for the majority of the trip. The roads are dangerous with pedestrians and animals crossing erratically and extremely deep ditches. But the beach is beautiful. The entrance cost is $15.00US per person ($5.00 for children). There's basketball and volleyball as well as ample space for sitting and getting some sun. Often times there is live music or a DJ. At the top of the hill is a nice restaurant with strong drinks for decent prices. Showers are scattered around for good access. The beaches are equipped with permanent thatch umbrellas and stone and cement benches, and plastic chairs are brought out in the mornings. There's a good-sized pool for those who prefer that to the ocean or for when the jellyfish are out en-force in the winter months (when the water is cooler). The grounds are beautifully landscaped with stunning views all around.
