Why a guidebook to Haiti now?
by Paul Clammer
Beach at Port Salut The most common question I’ve been asked about writing a guidebook to Haiti is probably ‘Why?’ In the preconceptions of many people the country was turned to rubble during the earthquake of January 12 2010, or they see it as a hotbed of coups and Vodou. The answer is a little more encouraging. Any country trying to build a tourist industry might give their eye-teeth for a portfolio like Haiti’s – it has a rich cultural heritage that lives through its art, music and religion. Its history – written across its landscape – is astounding, a country born out of the world’s only successful slave revolution to become the first independent black republic. Oh, and did I mention the palm-fringed beaches with white sand and turquoise sea? Haiti deserves a much closer look as you will find when you explore the mountains and historic fortresses, squeeze into buses or just have a cold beer at a street-side bar, learning Creole and listening to locals tell their own
