For the inaugural group trip for Jet Black, Haiti was a no-brainer. Not only is the country beautiful, but it has a very rich history. As the first black independent nation, they fought off the British, French and Spanish to gain their freedom.
In April, I traveled to Haiti for the first time. The trip to Haiti marked the 50th country that I visited and I could not have asked for a better vacation. The narrative of Haiti is one that is often riddled with tales of poverty and a country slowly recovering from disaster. What they rarely tell you about Haiti is that it is one of the most mountainous countries in the Caribbean and has countless pristine beaches with clear blue water.
During the five days that we are in Haiti we will explore the capital, Port-au-Prince, learn about the history and culture of the country and get a taste of the nightlife. We will then head south to Jacmel and take in the beauty of the Haitian coast. While in Jacmel you will have the chance to just stay by the beach and soak up some rays or go on adventurous excursions and take in what the city and mountains have to offer.
