Format: Paperback
Have just returned from three weeks in Haiti; it was my first visit. We travelled widely, visiting Cap Haitien, Port-de-Paix, Mole St Nicholas, St Marc, Gonaives and Jacmel. Like many "blancos" I suspect I was traveling with 15 others gathered from the four corners of the globe ([...] along with four Haitians. I downloaded this book before traveling and read it before going and then used it pretty much constantly on our travels. Of course, nothing can prepare you for this wonderous and amazing country but this travel guide was enormously helpful in many ways, including details of travel (OUCH!), hotels and where to visit. I particularly liked the historical sections, which were invaluable. The guide is very well written and appears to be well presented - cant really comment on this though since I was reading it on my iPhone and some of the sections were not correctly formatted. This guide was a vital companion on my travels and I highly recommend it. There is also (naturally!) an associated FB page which is also of interest [...]
LOVE this country but thanks very much for the guide!

This guide is a must have for your travel equipment - I read it from cover to cover and showed a section to a lovely but cynical Haitian who said "how come a foreigner can write a book about my country when he has only been here for a short time" he read the section about his area - Carrefour - looked at me quizzically - and said - hes's good! a little while later he asked me if he could KEEP the book! Praise indeed......
It gives the most interesting overview and in some cases great detail too!

The guide is very straight forward providing nothing but the most important information needed. I purchase the guide for my recent trip to Haiti and I really like the commentaries it provided and short historical background.

Accurate and Current Information about Haiti 8 Feb. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having travelled to Haiti several times a year for the past 11 years, I'm familiar with the Port Au Prince area and more especially, the Sud, where Les Cayes is the largest city. The first chapter, Background Information, is accurate and doesn't shy away from the historical background information that doesn't always flatter US politics. Chapter 2, Practical Information, is authentic and quotes accurate prices. He includes very helpful information about health (malaria, etc.) One notable and much appreciated comment: "By bringing in free stuff, you are out-competing local people trying desperately to make a living selling similar goods." The example he uses speaks of all those well-meaning collections of missions groups who bring in suitcases of 'free shoes'. He is right on! The chapter on Southern Haiti includes helpful information about where to stay, where to eat, where to find local transportation, etc. All of the information is thorough (names, phone numbers, rates, websites if available, etc.) I highly recommend this as a really useful travel guide for anyone who is considering a trip to Haiti. There are several wonderful full color photo plates that illustrate the true beauty of Haiti; the only thing more beautiful is the people!

If you only read one book on Haiti 28 Feb. 2013
By Priscilla Stilwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
...this must be it!

Clammer has written the most well-balanced assessment of Haiti as a place to visit and not just a place to do "charity work". Not only that, but he asks the hard questions like, what makes you think that you can do a better job than the Haitians (with nearly 75% formal unemployment)?

The only thing I would have liked to see changed, would be more color photos. Or more photos for that matter. The book reads like one of Uncle John's Bathroom Readers, with short essays on a wide range of areas. Not only does Clammer give an extremely thorough and accurate review of places to visit in Haiti, including places to stay and where to shop, but he also gives us a lot of interesting history and fun facts on the country. It is clear that Clammer loves Haiti and wants to see the country's success. I've learned more about Haiti in this one book than in any other single book I've read to date.

I'll be going to do an immersion program with the Academy of Haitian Language and Culture, May 2013, and will bring this book for my own reference as well as for others to look at. [...]

Best Haiti Travel Guide Yet 30 May 2013
By Susan M. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would definitely recommend this Travel Guide. I spent 5 weeks in Haiti, and every time I used the guide, it was correct and helpful. My good friend who lived in Haiti for 2 years also approved this guide. The only downside was the commentary. At times, there seemed to be one too many personal opinions for my taste. But otherwise, I would highly recommend this travel guide.

Everyone with a plane ticket to PaP should own this book 18 Mar. 2013
By AMA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
At last a real travel book for Haiti! This book's clear-eyed perspectives guide the reader through the real Haiti - a beautiful and diverse country that has been oversimplified and overlooked. Readers will enjoy digestible history, great maps, and excellent travel advice. This is good read for newbies and seasoned travelers to Haiti alike.

The best guidebook for Haiti, and actually one of the bests guidebook I've seen 10 Jan. 2014
By Agustin Filippo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An outstanding, modern, updated, informative and positive guidebook for Haiti. It seems to have a lot of research done , very recently and from scratch (so this is not an old story refreshed with a few new facts). The intro sections about the country , people, history and economics are as comprehensive and well written as it gets.
