Getting Around in Haiti

By Air

There are scheduled routes, operated by Caribintair, between Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haïtien, Hinche and Jérémie. Reservations should be double-checked as delays and cancellations are common. Planes may be chartered.

By Water

Sailing trips can be arranged from Port-au-Prince to beaches around the island. Glass-bottomed boat trips over Sand Cay Reef are available. Cargo ships operating between Jérémie, Cap-Haïtien and Port-au-Prince can take passengers between these ports.

By Road

Traffic drives on the right. There are all-weather roads from Port-au-Prince to Cap-Haïtien and Jacmel.


Services depart from Port-au-Prince to Cap-Haïtien, Les Cayes, Jacmel, Jérémie, Hinche and Port-de-Paix on an unscheduled basis.


Station-wagons (camionettes) run between Port-au-Prince and Pétionville, as well as some other towns.

Car Rental

Available independently in Port-au-Prince and Pétionville, or through hotels and the airport. Petrol can be very scarce outside Port-au-Prince. All rental cars’ registration numbers begin with ‘L’.

Documentation: An International Driving Permit is required.

Urban Transportation

Tap-taps are the most economical way to travel in Haiti. Tap-taps, which run within Port-au-Prince with a standard rate for any journey, are colourful but crowded; travellers are advised not to use these.

Taxis in Port-au-Prince are unmetered, with fixed route prices, otherwise fares agreed in advance. Taxi licence plates begin with the letter ‘P’. Shared taxis (publics) are the cheapest form of taxi service in the towns. Drivers can be hired for tours by the hour or the day with price negotiated. Taxi drivers do not expect tips.
