While it is surrounded by other diving hotspots in the Caribbean, Haiti’s reefs rarely see scuba divers. As such, most of the sites found around the island are in pristine condition, a variety of wrecks, reefs and walls are just waiting to be discovered.
The most famous dive site in Haiti is Amani’s Zombie Hole. Here the floor falls to 450 feet below sea level and the wall is covered in black coral and sponge tubes. In addition to colorful reefs, Haiti is also home to a variety of wrecks. A small PT boat lies at a depth of 90 feet (27 meters) just off of Kaliko Beach. The wreck is neighbored by a fascinating wall creating a 2-for-1 dive.
If it’s adventure you’re looking for, Haiti should be on your mind.
Most international travellers will arrive at Aéroport Toussaint L'Ouverture Airport (PAP) in Port-au-Prince or Aéroport International Cap-Haïtien (CAP) in the north. Domestic flights also operate from these airports.
It is also possible to enter Haiti overland from the Dominican Republic. Buses and taxis will take you as far as the border, but won’t cross it, so arrange additional transport to meet you on the other side.
You can choose to get around the island by chauffeur, rental car or tap-taps, which are a local version of public transportation.
