Labadee, Haiti is located on a remote peninsula on Haiti’s northern coast. It is part of Hispaniola, the island that is shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Travel to Haiti has declined in recent years due to the political unrest that has been prevalent in this region, however, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line took on a major development project turning Labadee into a private resort complex, exclusively for its cruise ship passengers. They are the only visitors who get to experience the natural beauty of this island paradise in total safety and security.
There are a variety of things to see and do on the island, including taking narrated coastal tours that provide details of the life and customs of the Haitian people. Hiking trails take visitors past 200-year-old ruins and snorkelling excursions are also offered, which take guests to nearby Amiga Island where they snorkel among submerged anchors and cannonballs. You may also be lucky enough to see a variety of pottery and other 16th century artefacts.
