There is a place in the Caribbean where the tourists don’t go; a tropical, rugged place of waterfalls, secret caves, and mountains that scrape the sky. It’s a place of bold flavours, intoxicating music, mischievous gods, and colourful art; where the only thing stronger than the rum is the spirit of the people who live there. It’s a place where only true travellers go; a place for the brave and the curious. The name of that place? Haiti. Yes, Haiti. This eight-day encounter draws back the veil on this extraordinary, vibrant, and indomitable nation. Experience the energy of Port-au-Prince, the colourful art of Jacmel, the iconic (and UNESCO-protected) Citadelle LaferriÈre, nurture the arts with at-risk children, and learn the folklore behind Haitian Vodou. Haiti has a future. Be a part of it.
