Forget everything you think you know about Haiti. It’s time to look beyond images of devastating natural disasters or political instability and redefine Haiti as a destination for those wanting to see another side of the Caribbean, off the beaten path. Known as the “Pearl of the Antilles,” this rugged place is full of beaches, waterfalls, caves, and an alluring personality rich in music, art, vodou, and of course, rum.
In advance of launching G Adventures’ first departures to Haiti in 2015, we’ve sent a group of journalists and bloggers there to help share the story of this beautiful nation. Wanderers-in-Residence Dan and Audrey are curating our Instagram channel throughout their trip, and you can follow the adventure in real-time with #GadvHaiti on both Twitter and the aforementioned Instagram.
Scroll down to check out the highlights thus far—and join us in challenging Haiti’s prevailing conception—from the first few days of their trip.
