Labadee Beach Haiti

This is one of the beaches of Haiti

The location is named after the Marquis de La Badie, a Frenchman who first settled the area in the 17th century. The peninsula and a village were named Labadie. The cruise company spells the name “Labadee” to make it easier for American English-speakers to pronounce.Once you get to Labadee you will understand why it’s famed for its Zipline excursion and hopefully get to ride it. Soaring 500 feet above ground, it is the longest over the water zip line course world over
Although Labadee is more safe than the rest of Haiti, it doesn’t mean you should tempt anyone around you. Avoid walking dark streets at night, stay in groups, don’t get too intoxicated, and keep a low profile while walking around in public.
Is a tiny remote fishing village about 30 minutes outside of Cap-Haitian, Haiti’s second largest city. Unknown to most, the village boasts several lodging options which provide opportunities to enjoy delicious freshly cooked local seafood, organic fruits and vegetables sourced right from the tree, and delightful taste of local Haitian communal culture.

Labadee is also a private resort leased by Royal Caribbean International (RCI) for use by its Royal Caribbean Cruise Line and Celebrity Cruise line cruise ships. Royal Caribbean International has contributed the largest proportion of tourist revenue to Haiti since 1986. The resort is completely tourist-oriented and safe as there is a personal security force. A controlled group of Haitian merchants are given sole rights to sell their merchandise and establish their businesses in the resort. The site is fenced off from the surrounding area. The ships are no loner forced to tender passengers ashore as a passenger pier has been built.
