Tourism in Haiti (Part II): One of the Challenges of Integrated Approaches


Last week, I wrote about what tourism is and has been like in Haiti. Today, I want to tell you about what the MIF is doing on the topic. In 2011, the MIF approved a three-year project aimed at positioning the North Department as Haiti’s prime tourism destination. The idea was to use an integrated approach to promote tourism based on the historical and cultural attractions unique to Haiti, involving stakeholders from the public and private sectors. The project would particularly organize and facilitate the management of the tourism destination with the participation of rural and urban micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, local and national government and other actors along the value chain.

Tourism in Haiti? Yes, tourism in Haiti! (Part I)



There has been a lot of buzz in the media lately about Haiti as a tourist destination – such as here and here. The push for this is coming mainly from the country, where the Martelly administration is embarking on a mission to raise the profile and branding of the country, and reinstate it as a unique destination in the region. More on this here. After all, Haiti used to be known as the “Pearl of the Caribbean.”

I was curious to learn more about the historical trends for tourism in Haiti, so I did a bit of research.
