My recent visit to Port au Prince.

Jump to last reply

I would like to warn visitors to Haiti not to book into Madam Leconte's guest house in Rue Jeremie, Port au Prince, I booked by phone for two nights before leaving Australia, it is US$20 per night with Breakfast, however they fail to tell you that they do not have electricity 24 hours a day, so the fan and TV are useless, so you will spend a most uncomfortable night, I paid for two nights and left after the first for which they did not refund the money for the second night, I moved into the Hotel Oloffson which is a wonderful old hotel in the Gingerbread style for a wonderful stay, it is US$69 per night with Breakfast on their beautiful verandah. Be prepared for chaotic roads, and traffic and chaos at the Airport,but very friendly and proud people, departure tax is US$30 plus 10 Gourdes (50cents US), taxi to and from airport to Port au Prince can be had for US$5, not US$20 as reported by some.
Happy Travelling
