Don't come here without sneakers. They charge you $10 for using the a horse, and it's a great experience. Ask for Pedro, Peter and Alexis. They know at least english and spanish and you give them whatever you want.

It's been a wonderful experience to visit the Citadelle. It wasn't easy climbing all the way up there, but I think that's the fun part about it. Great for family or a group of friends.

Everyone should visit this site when in Haiti. It's an amazing peace of history. The structure itself is remarkable and the view from the top is breathtaking.

A facinating historic fort on the road less travelled. Haiti struggles with its infrastructure so it is surprising the energy that has been put into making this a much visited historic site. Slowly it is taking on the mantle of a well managed location but...More

Really enjoyed the views, the history, and the ride up. Be sure to ride the horse, it would be a long walk if you do not. If you can get a translator who can explain the history.
