Occupying the western half of the island of Hispaniola, Haiti’s natural beauty makes this vibrant country one of the most breath-taking in the Caribbean. Book tickets to Haiti and you can explore the country’s tropical beaches, vibrant towns and lush forests for yourself.
Like much of the Caribbean, Haiti’s peak tourist season lasts from November to March. The winter months mark the country’s dry season when clear skies and tropical sunshine are the norm. If you’re hoping to spend your holiday relaxing on Haiti’s beautiful beaches or exploring its national parks and historic sights, this is the best time to book your flights to Haiti.
Heavy rain is common from April to June and July to October is hurricane season. Although the weather remains hot and cheap flights to Haiti are easier to find during these stormy months, be prepared for adverse weather to cut your sunbathing time short.

Located in Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital, Toussaint Louverture International Airport is the busiest in the country. Although relatively small, the airport offers a good choice of flights to international destinations in the Caribbean, North America and Europe. Most hotels in Haiti offer transfer services from the airport, making it easy to reach your final destination. Taxis are also available at the terminal building, although fares can vary widely.
The second busiest airport in Haiti, Cap-Haïtien International Airport is located on the country’s northern coast. The airport offers direct flights to both Miami and Fort Lauderdale as well as regular domestic services to Port-au-Prince. Like Toussaint Louverture International Airport, Cap-Haïtien International is served by taxis and buses as well as private shuttles and chauffer services.
A choice of airlines offer direct and connecting plane tickets to Haiti. These include:
Most of the hotels in Haiti are able to organize transfers and shuttles to towns and attractions. This is a safe and easy way to travel but you will pay a little more for your trip. If you want to save money, and see an authentic slice of the country, you can take a shared taxi (known as a publique).
Alternatively, catch a taptap or camionette. These converted pickup trucks and minibuses generally leave from designated stations and cover set routes. Fares are cheap and journeys are always interesting, but make sure you’re not in a rush as travel times can vary.
Haiti’s capital and the country’s largest city, Port-au-Prince has had a fairly turbulent time of it. Although large parts of the city have been rebuilt since the 2010 earthquake, damaged buildings and rubble are still a common sight.
At first, Port-au-Prince can seem a little chaotic. However, once you get your bearings the city’s energy and vitality is infectious and you’ll find a lot to explore. Book a private tour with a local resident to see a different side of the city and experience Haiti at its best.
Port-au-Prince is home to many of Haiti’s best museums. Visit the Musée du Panthéon National Haïtien to learn more about the country’s history and culture.
Haiti’s second city is a lot calmer and quieter than the country’s capital. At one point, Cap-Haïtien was the richest city in the Caribbean and you can still see remnants of its former prosperity in its architecture. The old port is one of the most picturesque parts of the city and is a pleasant place for a stroll on a Caribbean afternoon.
Cap-Haïtien is also a good place to base yourself if you want to learn more about the arrival of Columbus on Hispaniola and about Haiti’s slave rebellion. Take a tour through the local area and visit the city’s museums to find out more.
Located on Haiti’s southern coast, Jacmel is close to some of the country’s beast beaches. Visit the aquamarine Bassin-Bleu pools and the beach at Raymond Les Bains.
US passport holders don’t need to apply for a visa if they plan to stay in Haiti for less than three months.
