Highlights of Haiti and Carnival

9 days, Port-au-Prince to Port-au-Prince

Locals dancing during Carnival in Haiti
!

Sorry! There are no remaining departures for "Highlights of Haiti and Carnival" (CAHC),but here are some similar trips.

Picture it: Brightly-coloured masks and costumes, loud Caribbean music drifting through the air from large speakers on the backs of trucks, thousands of dancing revellers, and food stands with local fares and drinks – especially local rum – aplenty. This is Kanaval! Experience an authentic Caribbean carnival with loads of time left to explore the rest of the country on this nine-day tour. After watching the festivities in Jacmel, you’ll visit the Bassin-Bleu waterfall, the famous Citadelle Laferrière fortress, and even meet a Vodou priest, all while learning about (and filling up on!) Creole cuisine and culture along the way. Just say wi.
