Best time to visit

Cap Haïtien can be visited all year round. If you come mostly for the beach life, bear in mind that the rainy seasons fall in April to May and again in September to October. These periods have quite heavy rainfall.

Local conditions


Time zone

Haiti is four hours behind GMT. When it's noon in the UK, it's 8 am in Cap Haïtien.

Accommodation / Hotel

The hotels in Cap Haïtien insist on a very confusing pricing system. A cheap-looking joint can be as expensive as a multi-star establishment. There are a number of inexpensive hotels in town, but security isn't always the best, and some places are in tough neighbourhoods. There are several nice hotels along the beaches outside the city.
