Flipping In and Out of Haiti – Reaching and Departing

The island of Hispaniola has attracted many travelers due to its fantastic tropical climate and the heart throbbing mountainous scenery. Departing and arriving at Haiti is very simple for a naive traveler. The simplest method to reach Haiti is through the airplane or a cruise ship.Few travelers reach Haiti after visiting Cuba or the Dominican Republic, which are the neighboring Caribbean countries.

Port-au-Prince is an International Airport in Haiti (named after the Capital city) that gives a warm welcome to all the travelers. This Airport is served by many International Airlines, which runs - to and fro every day. Port-au-Prince International Airport is officially called as Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Haiti.

After arriving at the Airport, the tourist can reach to their hotel destination through shuttle or a taxi. Renting a car is a good option as it is readily available near the Airport, but public transport in Haiti is reported to be very efficient, rather than hiring a car. The most popular form of public transport in Haiti is the ‘Tap Tap’ taxi, which is a brightly painted pickup taxi-truck. It has a capacity of 20-30 people, which is often filled with the maximum capacity.

The visitors, who reach Haiti from Dominican Republic, have two options to enter Haiti - one through the North end and other through the South end. The crossing at the south of Haiti is located in the city of Port-au-Prince. Travelers, who wish to stay in Haiti or travel through the Airport, prefer to stay in this city, as it has easy access to the airport. There is a departure tax in Haiti for travelers who wish to travel between locations. This tax is normally inexpensive and it is charged as a general traveling fee and standard airfare.
