G Adventures' new Highlights of Haiti Tour

Toronto-based G Adventures is launching a Highlights of Haiti tour beginning in February 2015, five years after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck the creole island. The 10-day tour will start and end in Port-au-Prince, and will include stops at artists’ studios in the capital, Cap-Haïtien and the UNESCO-designated Citadelle Laferrière, and the cobalt-blue Bassins Bleu pools and waterfalls. Each group of no more than 16 travellers will also visit the Art Creation Foundation for Children, which provides food and teaches at-risk kids traditional art. They’ll also learn to make flat bread called kasav and meet a voodoo priest. G Adventures and its non-profit Planeterra work with the Inter-American Development Bank on community-based projects that will support local economies in Central and South America. G Adventures uses local suppliers so money spent in Haiti will stay in the country. $2499 per person for accommodations, nine breakfasts, eight lunches and five dinners. tel: (888) 800-4100; gadventures.com.
