The place today si a sad story never the least one that is worth discovering.
Haiti was the first independent nation in Latin America from 1804 where taking advantage of the France revolution they manage to abolish slavery and declare independence.
From that era they inherited a impressing fortress outside the Cap Haitien named Citadelle Laferrière together with an impressive arsenal of canons.
The country is today the poorest in the Northern hemisphere and one of the purest in the world.
The city’s are very dirty and most modern facilities don’t exist, the very few hotels and restaurants that maybe safe for a traveler are rare and very expensive.
Security is an important issue for backpacks or individual travelers and is not recommended.
For a good 3 star hotel expect to pay about 200 USD the currency of choice in Haiti.
A decent lunch in a safe restaurant is 15-20 USD per person and renting a car with a driver 100-200 USD a day.
