... the rest of the city, and the rest of the whole country. A part of it includes the carefully kept gardens around the national Pantheon. Guess what, these gardens are well kept. They include a view at the nearby senseless unfinished pyramid of some local dictator, dedicated to himself, and which final aim is, to this day, unknown. Although... More

This is the place to be if you want to hang out in Port-au-Prince in the afternoon , if you want to enjoy a beer , or if you just want to watch local people . Meeting haitians and starting a conversation is really made easy while sitting at this gathering point while enjoying a drink or an icecream !

Its a gathering place, at least that's what it was created for. It is ugly, dirty and laden with merchants selling their wares in droves. Expect to be assaulted with people in your face to buy souvenirs. It is best to go there around sunset ore early evening not the afternoon and late nights.

this is a beautiful park, you will enjoy it more at night, if you know how to skate you can rent one near by for a few bucks and have fun while you at it

That Place offers you a great opportunity to discover the History of that Caribbean Nation. Unfortunately, the country has a lack of leaders and will. Excellent location, close to the airport and all the hotels in Port au Prince. You will see the ruins of the National Palace, visiting the Musee du Pantheon Haitien and a few monuments to discover...

The Champs-de-Mars is a large square that hosts the National Museum, several of the congress houses, and the ruins of the National Palace. It is mainly interesting to visit during the time of festivities, such as carnival, parades, Carifesta, and so on.

Don't expect much. And depending on the time of day, it's going to be very crowded with lots of street vendors. Listen, it's one of the last nice areas of the city, so do stop by. But don't expect much.

Champs de mars as it known was great and we met some talented artists, therefore we bought a couple paintings and people in the street were so pleasant to talk to.

My husband and I visited this place because we were told it was a good oportunity to take the pulse of Haiti's life. Once there, we had encountered feelings of amazement and pity as the place has good potential and actually gives the chance to see and experience Haiti's way of life but it is also filled with beggars and...
