About Haiti

Haiti is a Caribbean island situated between the Caribbean Sea and North Atlantic Ocean, and a proud nation which was created as a result of a slave revolt. In the early 19th century, when Haiti emerged from the French colonialism and slavery, it became the first black-led, independent Caribbean state. In Haiti, one will experience both the African and European cultures and traditions, which coexist on this stunning landscape.

Haiti's nature is intact thanks to the limited flow of tourists in the country and limited development, giving an exclusive touch to it natural attractions (from caves and mountains to waterfalls and sandy beaches). However, among the government's priorities is to create a thriving tourism industry and to manage Haiti's natural beauty in a way that will increase the revenue and break the country away from poverty.

Haiti is hot and humid ' summer temperatures are around 28°C and winter temperatures around 18°C. The island is susceptible to natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, flooding, and droughts. The latest devastation for Haiti occurred in 2016 due to Hurricane Matthew, but the nation is steadily recovering and looking forward.

For professional expats, there are many work opportunities in the NGO sector, as the country is in need of foreign aid when it comes to infrastructure, supplies, and management. The main industry in Haiti is agriculture, and the main exported crops are bananas, cocoa, and mangoes.

One of Haiti's strongest features is its people who are hospitable, kind, and happy ' there's no way that you will feel not welcomed in Haiti.
