Everything about this store/cafe/pizzeria makes me happy. The people, the history, the products. I would suggest if you take a "team" you make enough time to give them some information about how Papillon came to be and educate them on why keeping families together is so important. The products are well-made and great quality. I have been ordering online in between my trips and paying to have products shipped to Canada because they make great gifts!

Musee du Pantheon National Haitien

Reviewed By Frantz Gabriel N - Port-au-Prince, Haiti

At the Mupanah one get a real glimpse of the diversity of Haitian history. Pre-Colombus history, the genocide of the natives, the slave trade, the battle for independence and the different period (monarchy and republic). One gets a little idea of the diversity of the haitian art in a part of this museum.
A tour at Mupanah rich in history and a memorable moment

You would be crazy to travel to Haiti and not use Mitch for your transportation needs! He not only made us feel incredibly welcome, but most importantly, very safe. Mitch has a warm, calming disposition that makes anyone feel at home... first time traveling abroad, cautious or seasoned traveler... he quickly puts at ease. Highly recommended!!!
We arrived in Port au Prince with 12 large bags in toe. He brought a vehicle big enough and did not change the price when I told him we have lots of luggage. Mitch was waiting patiently for us with a clear and visible sign with our names. It was hard to distinguish at first who was working with him, as the airport "helpers" all have "official" looking badges and say they work with Mitch. He was incredibly kind and professional in all of his interactions with us as his clients, and all other encounters as well.... local or foreign... Mitch consistently showed deep respect for all people. He told us those guys weren't actually with his company, and not to let them help us with our bags unless we wanted to pay them.
He stopped at a very comfortable gas stations for bathroom breaks as we drove to Les Cayes, and even shared pate's with us during the ride (local cuisine!) On the way back to the airport, we planned to leave at 7 am, to which he arrived early and prompt. Mitch was very informative of the culture and history of Haiti, educating us along the way, and was very helpful with any questions we had. His fluency in English, among several other languages, is also a huge bonus.
We will absolutely use his company in the future. Couldn't have had a better experience! Thanks Mitch!!!

Marche de Fer

This is not the Marche de Fer in Port-au-Prince. I've tried to add this listing and some idiot keeps on sending me a link saying it's been added, linking to the Marche de Fer, PaP.There used to be dozens of these all over Haiti, but now only a few still exist. Jacmel's, similar to the one in Cap Haitian, is hidden away in the central colonial zone. If you don't make your way up the steep, windy and narrow streets, you'll miss it. Unlike the market in Port-au-Prince, there aren't any tourists here, as it is used for the same reason it was built 150 years ago, Haitians selling basic needs, like food and clothing, to other Haitians.

This is a special market! One place to visit for sure in Port au Prince without any doubt. This place is a real Caphanaüm but the people and vendor a real negotiators. We visited in February 2017 and it's a real eye opener for us. There's a lot of Haitian artwork but everything seems to repeat itself from aisle to aisle.

It is made out of sugar cane! Delicious.
The 5 star rhum is aged 12 years.
BEST RHUM in the entire world.
