From the moment MEJDI’s Latin America Specialist, Danielle DiVerde, first visited Haiti, she knew there was something special about this country in comparison to the many others she has lived, worked, and traveled to in the past. Traveling by motorcycle with locals through the Ouest, Sud, and Grand’Anse Departments to create impactful programs for travelers and locals alike, she was awed by Haiti’s rich culture, lush nature, and resilient history. Through her background in international relations and social impact work, this destination came to life – with the vision of sharing Haiti with the world through socially responsible tourism at the forefront.
The news may portray Haiti more as a disaster-ridden country than a popular vacation destination, but this one-sided narrative does not fully represent what Haiti has to offer, and possibly the reason why Haiti still remains one of the best kept travel destination secrets. Whether you are a religious leader looking to take your community to a new and exciting destination, a school or university looking to expand your student’s worldview, or just a traveler with a sense of adventure, Haiti has something for everyone – whether it is exploring the mystical underground labyrinth of La Grotte Marie Jeanne, speaking with local religious and political leaders, or simply enjoying home-cooked Haitian meal followed by homestay experience in a village in Pestel.
And the best part? By traveling to Haiti in a socially responsible way with MEJDI Tours, you instantly become a part of revolutionizing the way people travel there through engaging in sustainable tourism practices that directly help the people and communities we visit!
