Cap Hatien

Apart from being the second largest city of the country, this area also acts as a prime tourist magnet because of the wide range of things to do. Most of the renowned monuments with extreme historical value are located in this part of the country. Moreover, if you are looking forward towards taking some souvenirs back home, this is the perfect place to purchase them.

The Citadelle Laferriere

This monument is the first one built by the slaves after they had regained their freedom. This is the biggest structure in the entire Western Hemisphere. Wear your hiking shoes, fill up the bottles with water (as it is a seven mile uphill journey), and set out to reach atop this massive fortress to enjoy the beauty of the place and its surroundings.
