Haiti, which was the first black republic in history, occupies the western third of Hispaniola Island, which it shares with the Dominican Republic
. Unfortunately, the country has undergone wild deforestation and suffers from a chronic state of insecurity. Haiti still has interesting idiosyncrasies, such as its naive art
and omnipresent voodoo rituals in daily life. You discover the Caribbean's nice beaches and mountainous landscape in a francophone atmosphere. However, holiday-makers who do wish to travel to Haiti should be aware that it is a destination reserved for the experienced.
