An oasis of pleasure in a troubled land, the holiday destination of Labadee is a cordoned off peninsula on the north coast of Haiti, owned and operated by a cruise line (Royal Caribbean) with the aim of providing a safe and secure base for passengers to disembark and be tendered ashore to enjoy the tropical delights of the island of Hispaniola, which is shared by the Dominican Republic and the Republic of Haiti.
Labadee is situated in Haiti, a country that is rife with civil unrest, crime and corruption, and although it has plenty to offer tourists, has become something of a pariah on the international travel scene in recent years. The cruise company has picked a beautiful spot as a private holiday playground for those enjoying its Caribbean cruises, and improved upon it.
Labadee has five white, powdery beaches, all lapped by crystal clear waters with offshore coral reefs, a water park, restaurants, bars, shops and markets. Labadee resort is more than just an extension of the ship and a place to tread on dry land, though, for visitors can take a number of excursions to experience the local culture and get a taste of the island's rich history. The resort was unaffected by the catastrophic earthquake in early 2010 that devastated the rest of the island.
