CheapCaribbean.com Expands Footprint to Haiti Through Partnership With Haiti Ministry Tourism Board
New Hotel Partnership with Moulin Sur Mer Announced
Dallas, Texas - January 29, 2015
– With one of the fastest developing tourism infrastructures, increased airline arrivals, a budding local art scene and culinary prowess inspired by French and Creole gastronomists, Haiti is ripe for exploration. Seeing an opportunity to get in at the ground level and work with Haiti to develop its tourism market, CheapCaribbean.com – the leading online resource for vacation deals to the Caribbean and Mexico – has expanded its footprint to include Haiti launching its first hotel partner with Moulin Sur Mer.
Executives at CheapCaribbean.com have spent the last few months visiting Haiti to inspect hotels in both Port-au-Prince and the resort town of Côte des Arcadins and establish ground operations to ensure seamless travel experiences for vacationers.
“Haiti is a fascinating destination with plenty to offer travelers seeking a unique escape unlike your typical sun and sand vacation,” said Steve Dumaine, president of CheapCaribbean.com.
“Haitians are a warm and vibrant people with a deep sense of artistry and a proud culture that has not been impacted by development,” noted Dumaine. “While overcoming common misperceptions of Haiti will be a challenge, the reality of the situation on the ground is very different from the images Americans remember from news coverage of 2010’s devastating earthquake.
“For many Americans, this will be the first time they see the real Haiti – the one which blends French and Caribbean culture with an exotic, old-world charm that is becoming increasingly difficult to find in today’s modern tourism industry,” said Dumaine.
To launch their Haiti vacation offerings, CheapCaribbean.com has partnered with Moulin Sur Mer, a colonial-style beach resort in Montrouis along the clear turquoise waters of La Côte des Arcadins. This beach resort features a beautiful groomed garden, an outdoor swimming pool, a restaurant, bars and free Wi-Fi.
Moulin Sur Mer features a marina and a PADI diving center that offer excursions to beautiful spots in the area or nearby islands and PADI diving courses. The property has an on-site restaurant that serves local and international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The resort is also walking distance to the Ogier-Fombrun museum, an authentic sugar cane plantation that was restored by famous Haitian sculptor and architect Gérard Fombrun. The museum provides stories dating from the pre-Columbian Indian era to colonial times of 1794 when Haiti used to be the largest producer of sugar in the Caribbean.
