Milot is a town in the north of Haiti.
It is a small town about 20 km from Cap-Haïtien that serves as the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage site that comprises the ruins of Sans Souci Palace and the refurbished and the largest fortification in the Americas, the Citadelle Laferriere (or Citadelle Henri Christophe.) The Palace and Citadelle were built by King Henri Christophe in the early 1800s with the work of thousands of slaves. It was recently refurbished and is at the end of a tough hike (or you can rent donkeys.) Hiring a guide is recommended.
Guide Maurice Etienne of the Lakou Lakay cultural centre (Centre Cuturel Lakou Lakay) offers rooms for travellers, for around HTG 1000. Staying in Cap-Haitien is a good option.
Tap-taps to Cap-Haïtien run along the main street, and cost around HTG 15 (USD .45).
