Citadelle Laferriere Sightseeing Tour from Cap-Haitien

1 review
On this small-group tour, your guide offers facts and anecdotes often missed by solo visitors about the rich history and legacy of Palace San Souci and Citadelle Laferrière, the largest fortress in the Western Hemisphere built to protect freed slaves after the Haitian Revolution of 1804. A horseback ride up to the Citadelle and lunch with live entertainment makes this tour a popular choice for visitors.

"Very Good" is a relative term. Most of the vendors are selling the same things and haven't seen a tourist for days. So it can be overwhelming. Still worth doing, and the architecture is great.

The Marche de Fer (Iron Market), has suffered yet another problem. The once beautiful market is now half destroyed by fire not at all safe for the inquisitive tourist

Subject to an arson attack a few months back, crowed smelly, dirty and full of pickpockets. If you leave your car you WILL be surrounded by beggars and chancers, this is on one of the worse areas of the city .

Perhaps not for all travelers, but for those who can handle themselves without becoming easily intimidated or easily swindled, marche en fer is a must for those who want a glimpse in to local commerce, customs, and culture. Be prepared to negotiate and if you don’t speak Creole maybe find a Haitian to bring you. Many will say it’s not safe but I’ve been dozens of times with many visiting friends. As long as you can be firm and handle the very persistent vendors you will love this experience.
