Cap-Hatien Afternoon Tour

2nd Wave of Pandemic Adventure and 1st time in Caribbean
October 07 to October 15, 2020


Cap-Haïtien, often referred to as Le Cap or Au Cap, is on the north coast of Haiti and capital of the department of Nord. Previously named Cap‑Français and Cap‑Henri, it was historically nicknamed the Paris of the Antilles, because of its wealth and sophistication, expressed through its architecture and artistic life. Cap-Haïtien is near the historic Haitian town of Milot, which lies 19 km to the southwest along a gravel road. Milot was Haiti's first capital under the self-proclaimed King Henry Christophe, who ascended to power in 1807, three years after Haiti had gained independence from France. He renamed Cap‑Français as Cap‑Henri. Milot is the site of his Sans-Souci Palace, wrecked by the 1842 earthquake. The Citadelle Henry, a massive stone fortress bristling with cannons, atop a nearby mountain is 8.0 km away. On clear days, its silhouette is visible from Cap‑Haïtien.
