There are many sights to visit in Northern Haiti, but we recommend visiting the following:
Cap-Haitian

Cap-Haïtian is Haiti’s second city. What now feels like a tranquil, scenic town, was once one of the richest colonial ports in the world. Its central square and wide gridded, cobblestone streets with high-shuttered doors and balconies make it the ideal base from where you can explore the region. Be sure to pick up the local favorites, Cassava bread made with grated and roasted coconut and (Sellebride) their sweet liquor, before you head back home. We recommend you stop in to have lunch at the beautiful Hotel du Roi Christophe walking distance from the city’s central square. Our walking tours in Cap-Haitian are inexpensive using licensed, contracted experienced tour staff.

 

Citadelle la Ferrière


Citadelle la Ferrière, is the magnificent mother of all Caribbean forts – a true castle perched high on a mountain and the master of all it surveys. Built in the early years of independence, it’s a monument to the vision of a short-lived king, whose ruined palace of Sans Souci sits below.

Labadee

The crashing Atlantic waves give the north some spectacular coastline and great beaches as well. Labadee and Cormier Beaches are a stone’s throw from Cap-Haïtian and are ideal places to unwind – even in the years of political turmoil, Labadee was one place the cruise lines couldn’t bear to give up. In fact, World Caribbean Cruise line currently operates entrance to this exclusive jewel. The northern coast of Haiti continues to draw a steady stream of tourists as it is becoming one of the prime destinations for independent travelers, across the world.
