aiti is gaining popularity as a tourist destination, and if you are considering taking a summer vacation to this little gem in the Caribbean, here are some tips and tricks that will make your trip smooth and stress-free. BEFORE YOU GO 1. Know what you want to do. Before you book your trip to Haiti, ask yourself what you want to do while you are there. If you prefer a Haitian resort experience, then you may want to head to La Côte des Arcadins, where you can enjoy the beaches and water sports. On the other hand, if you would like to learn more about the Haitian culture, then you may enjoy checking out the French colonial era architecture and colorful carnival in the city of Jacmel.
2. Hunt for the best deal. Check out all the hotels and resorts listed
on HaitiOpen.com to see if they offer any discounted rates. Many hotels offer early bird specials for guests who book in advance. Even if you don’t see any advertised discounts on the hotel/resort listing page, you can contact each hotel and resort to see if they can offer you a deal if you stay multiple nights.
3. Budget your activities. If you already know which attractions you’ll be visiting, you can check out their prices and opening hours in advance. If you can’t find the info online, contact your hotel or resort and they can usually help you out. If there are activities that you want to participate in, you may book in advance as sometimes you can get a better rate if you pre-book them. In addition, if you plan to use your credit cards on your trip, make sure that they are accepted.
