Haiti picture credit: My Haiti Travel
Recently, we see a growth of young folks traveling to Haiti from all over the world, they travel to Haiti for different reasons from working to having a good time, or simply learning the amazing history of this country as the first black Republic in the Americas, and the only country, in which, slaves have led a successful revolution against European’s domination in the new world. On the other hands, many young Haitian professionals travel every year, and they are looking for new places to visit and explore. One of the biggest issue with traveling from Haiti is the price of the flights; as a result, it is really expensive for young Haitian folks to reach these destinations.
Sunrise Airways, an owned Haitian airline starts flying a few new routes that make it easy for young Haitians to directly connect with new destinations and young folks from other countries to travel to Haiti. I believe these four destinations should be part of your list for 2018:
Havana, Cuba, 500 Years of History
In Havana the history is piled up like wrecked treasure on a palm-fringed beach. No one could have invented Havana. It’s too audacious, too contradictory, and – despite 50 years of withering neglect – too damned beautiful. How it does it is anyone’s guess. Maybe it’s the swashbuckling history still almost perceptible in atmospheric colonial streets; the survivalist spirit of a populace scarred by two independence wars, a revolution and a US trade embargo; or the indefatigable salsa energy that ricochets off walls and emanates most emphatically from the people. Don’t come here with a long list of questions. Just arrive with an open mind and prepare for a long, slow seduction. Lean more about Cuba
Curaçao, the Amazing Dutch Island
If you head to Curaçao’s capital, Willemstad, you’ll find a larger-than-life installation spelling out the local expression dushi, meaning ‘sweet’ or ‘nice’. It’s safe to say that the word has become the unofficial slogan of the island – head on down, grab yourself a blue drink (tinted by Curaçao’s signature liqueur, of course) and enjoy the dushi life of sun and sand. read here the 7 reasons you should visit this small Dutch Island
Dominican Republic, La Casa del Merengue
The social glue of the DR is the all-night merengue that blasts from colmados (combined corner stores and bars), and this is true everywhere from the capital Santo Domingo to crumbling San Pedro de Macoris to Puerto Plata, where waves crash over the Malecón. Dominicans greatly appreciate their down time and really know how to party, as can be seen at Carnival celebrations held throughout the country and at each town’s own distinctive fiesta. These events are windows into the culture, so take the chance to join the fun and elaborate feasts.
Orlando, the Magical City
It’s true: Orlando is a magical place. And it’s not just because it’s home to Cinderella’s castle at Walt Disney World. There’s an incredible mix of fun things to do in this great city that make it an ideal vacationing spot for not only families but young singles, baby boomers, foodies, outdoor adventurous types, luxury shoppers and international visitors. While the city was built on theme park fame, the number and variety of Orlando attractions have grown to include everything from world-famous restaurants to high-end outlet shopping centers to theatrical performances and amazing concert and sporting event venues.
Golfers love the pristine, challenging and historic courses throughout the city and art-lovers enjoy the Orlando Museum of Art, Mennello Museum of American Art as well as a number of small, funky galleries and art studios sprinkled throughout the area. Orlando is a place known for hospitality, and that extends to its many hotels, spas and services that suit every budget and taste. Learn more
