Amid its woes, Haiti offers a striking rugged beauty that is obvious to adventure travelers — rolling hills, steep mountains and rocky terrain that make backpacking or mountain biking just as good a heart pumper here as in any mountainous Caribbean island.But the country also offers a quality that’s often overlooked and even dismissed: a slice of paradise.This was certainly the offering during a recent weekend jaunt to northern Haiti where I joined a group of curiosity seekers on a boat excursion around the country’s picturesque coast. The area is better known to Royal Caribbean cruise passengers and well-heeled yachting enthusiasts than to your average visitor.Haiti’s second-largest city, Cap-Haïtien, I discovered, is more than just a historical find. via | The Miami Herald
