Haiti (Haitian Creole: Ayiti , French: Haiti ) is located in the Caribbean and shares land with the Dominican Republic, which covers 2/3 of the island Hispaniola.The Dominican Republic is a rich country with a thriving tourist industry and you typically fly there when visiting Haiti and then from the airport by taxi or bus to Haiti.

Haiti, a poor country on a major rebound

Haiti, on the other hand, is one of the poorest countries in the Western world, but can be visited with caution and insight. Danish filmmaker and writer Jørgen Leth lived here for many years until a terrible earthquake in 2010 destroyed his house. And more tragically, over 200,000 people lost their lives.
The country’s history is fascinating and moving. In fact, the country had at least 20 good years from the 60’s onwards, and then again dark years in the shadow of the dictatorship reinforced by natural disasters with the earthquakes in 2010 and 2016. But now it shines again as the very beautiful and mystical part of the island, it is. The tourists have returned and can now visit two countries on the same island. There is plenty to see, but get a guide and exercise caution.
