Cities[edit]

Map of Northern Haiti
  • 1 Cap-Haïtien — the country's second largest city.
  • 2 Fort Liberté — a border town near some interesting ruins and the Dominican border.
  • 3 Gonaïves Gonaïves on Wikipedia — a small-ish port, where the first black republic was born.
  • 4 Milot — a small town right by two of the country's most famous landmarks: the Sans-Souci Palace and the Citadelle Laferrière.
  • 5 Port-de-Paix Port-de-Paix on Wikipedia — a smuggling haven en route to Miami, and a potential point of embark for Tortuga Island.

Other destinations[edit]

  • 1 Labadie — Haiti's principal source of tourist dollar, surprisingly, is one lone (beautiful) private beach, off limits to Haitians, and owned by a busy cruise liner, dropping off hundreds of daytrippers every day.
  • 2 Tortuga Island — an island just waiting to become a major tourist destination is as of yet still entirely undeveloped, with limited electricity, no police force, no infrastructure upkeep, as well as beautiful rocky views, one incredibly beautiful and isolated beach, centuries of pirate history, and a good number of mountaintop mansions belonging to various drug lords.
