Dominican Republic & Haiti - North & South Haiti (Chapter)
This is the Southern and Northern Haiti chapters from Lonely Planet’s Dominican Republic & Haiti guidebook.
Haiti’s south is about taking it easy. Pulling out of Port-au-Prince, the urban hustle is soon replaced by a much more relaxed air as you head towards the Caribbean Sea. If you’re interested in how Haiti came to be as it is today, head north. From Columbus’ first landfall on Hispaniola to the key events of the slave revolution, it all happened here.
