The Coast of Haiti

The coast of Haiti is beautiful with tall green mountains surrounded by turquoise water.  Fishermen earn their living from small boats with makeshift sails and a water taxi stands idle near the coast.  Off the coast of Haiti lies the island of Tortuga, made famous in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

One Response to The Coast of Haiti

  1. Melanie says:

    Haiti is indeed a beautiful place to visit. I actually haven’t been there since the earthquake back in 2010. A lot of my friends in Haiti advised me not to come, because of the state the country was in. I’ve missed a lot since then. I used to go on field trips with my Haitian friend, who’s a biologist. I hope we can do that do again…
