The Minister of Tourism office in Haiti announced yesterday the nomination for the 2 very special prizes by a renown Major US based newspaper. I am a strong believer that with proper promotion of tourism Haiti’s economy will see tremendous growth. With a number of proud Haitians in the country and in the diaspora, Haiti has been slowly moving into a positive light in the tourism industry. A number of tour agencies such as Belle Vue Tours and My Haiti Travels they have worked tirelessly to bring as many visitors to share and live the beauty of Haiti.
In the past few years, there has been a major increase in the promotion on Haiti Tourism online and on social media. There are a number of photographers such as Frederick Alexis , Hunter Kitrell and Verdy Verna have been able to capture the essence of Haiti in pictures. On outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram supporters of Haiti have made it a daily mission to share and promote the beauty of Haiti because it is truly the #1 Caribbean Destination for Adventure.
The combined efforts of all these parties I believe has played a part for Haiti to receive the recent nomination by the prestigious U.S. based newspaper known as USA Today. I am over the moon with excitement to know that Haiti has been nominated for the “10 Best Readers’ Choice Travel Award” category Best Caribbean Destination for Adventure!
