My trip to Haiti was my 3rd trip with Haitian Nomad and as usual it was EPIC, EDUCATIONAL, ENTERTAINING, MET VERY NICE PEOPLE, AS USUAL, ETC. A HEARTFELT THANK YOU TO JUDE ISAAC FOR BEING SUCH A GRACIOUS CO-HOST THANK YOU AND RICHARD FOR AND MAKING SURE THAT I HAD MY VEGAN MEALS.! I was very excited to finally go to Cap Haitien, Haiti, THE CRADLE OF INDEPENDENCE! After not being able to do so before in the past for different reasons. I guess I was destined to go with this dynamic and informative Travel Group, Haitian Nomad. It's really heart-breaking that a country like Haiti, with SOOO MUCH HISTORY, NATURAL RESOURCES AND BEAUTY TO OFFER TO THE WORLD IS ALWAYS PROJECTED IN THE SUCH A NEGATIVE WAY! The corruption in the Country of the local and outside influencers are beyond words. The sad thing is that some of our people believe ALL the negativity in the media. Meanwhile, some of those who are projecting the negativity are going to these same countries in droves and on a regular basis and enjoying them. That’s why when anyone asked me about the poverty, I would tell them that there’s poverty ALL over the World! It’s worst in some than others but that was NOT the focus of my trip because I’ve seen enough negativity in the press and I don’t believe nor accept His-story. I went there to learn, firsthand, the History of the revolution and enjoy the beauty of the country and it's people. That’s why I told a few selected people about my trip beforehand! It was really heartwarming and emotional to climb and hear the history of the Citadelle Laferrière, pick-up one of the cannonballs, OMG!! Those balls are extremely heavy! As usual, the accommodations, restaurants, sightseeing tours to ALL the historical sites were on point. Visiting the other Historical sites filled me with emotions, pride and respect for my Haitian family. When we were flying into the country. I had a window seat and was amazed to see that Haiti was so mountainous and hilly. For a moment, I said is there any flatlands in Haiti? LOL! The beach day and the massage were beyond words. I had to tell my Trinbago Family, that our Nylon Pool in Tobago, wants NOTHING with Haiti’s sand bar (not sure if that’s how it’s called). I was in awe of that place so far out into the ocean with just sand and you can stand THERE WITHOUT BEING WET unless the tide was high. Which it was the day we went, so there was some water around the edges. I’m SOO HAPPY that I was introduced to Haitian Nomad and I always tell my family, friends and strangers that if you want a worry free vacation to book with Haitian Nomad. The great thing is that you don’t even need a roommate. Up to Monday, I went to the bank and I gave the teller the website information. On my way to Haiti, while we were waiting to depart from Ft. Lauderdale, I told the lady sitting next to me about Haitian Nomad and right there and then she booked the Egypt trip in November. God’s continued blessings with your Vacation Experience Trips. CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU ON MY NEXT TRIP!

Thanks for such a well run, educational, and fun trip.

Richard organized an excellent and well thought out trip that maximized the five days in Cap-Haitien. It was an ideal balance of sightseeing, beaches/relaxation and nightlife and dining. I highly recommend this trip above all to Haitians abroad (particularly who have not yet been to Haiti) who are looking for an easy and safe way to (re)connect with Haiti and take in all the pride that comes with the history of Cap-Haitien. I cannot recommend this trip enough. It surely won’t be my last #haitiannomad trip. Chapo ba Richard!

This was my first trip with Haitian Nomad. The level of professionalism is unmatched! It kind of reminded me of my summer camp days. When you're apprehensive at first when you're dropped off but don't want to go home at the end when your parents come to get you. Sometimes you don't know how much weight you're carrying until you release it! This review may be long winded. I went with Richard Cantave the owner of Haitian Nomad. This last year has been hell on wheels for me. Travel is my love language and I feel I needed to get away. I tend to be shy and an introvert and I don't people well. I can be socially awkward at times. I saw the Haiti trip through Www.haitiannomad.net. I decided to book. I know I probably asked 1,002 questions prior to the trip but Richard was so patient with me. Even reassuring. I was nervous and anxious. I didn't know how I'd fit in. I want to reassure anyone contemplating booking a Haitian Nomad trip to just do it. Be open, be flexible and get out of your own way! From the time you book until the time you are returned to the airport to return home you will experience 5 star service with a staff who's hearts are as big as their smiles! On this trip something happened that I haven't felt in awhile, my soul smiled! I have about 20 new sisters and brothers! #haitiannomadtrips #haitiannomad

I have been traveling with Haitian Nomad since 2016. Within these 4 years they have built themselves a very solid reputation. I have recommended friends who came back with praising reviews. Originally centered on Haiti, they now have a global imprint with well-curated trips to discover the beauty and history of some dope locations. On Richard's trips, careful consideration is always taken for our security as well as our health. We see that illustrated even more in 2020 as we deal with the current pandemic. On our most recent trip, we made sure to be in complete compliance with both the US and Senegal by getting tested for COVID-19 before, during and after our trip. All of us left and came with back with negative results. As a healthcare provider, I felt in trusted hands the whole time and also did not feel that our group was compromising the health of the country we were visiting. The itineraries usually includes a mix of activity and relaxation (sometimes hardcore rejoicing at night lol). The best part is you always leave Richard's trips with unique travel experiences as well as lifelong friendships.

Short Version: Book with him ASAP I cannot recommend the Haitian Nomad enough!! My first trip, we'd returned from Cuba and after the experience, I was thoroughly impressed with Richard's trip. His trips are extremely well planned and a lot of thought and effort was put into ensuring everyone is having the time of their life. Richard pays attention to all the little details, is very organized, and adds a personal touch to the experience that you're not likely to get anywhere else. During our trip to Cuba, Richard organized a wonderful home-cooked rooftop dinner in the city of Trinidad and it was such a fun, unique experience. He made sure to take us around to the sights and helped us if we needed anything while on the trip. Prior to the trip, Richard provided us with all the necessary information leading up to the trip and gave us tips and suggestions on what to expect and other things to do as well. He is also open to feedback on how his service can be improved so he gets an A in customer service from me. Overall, it was the perfect trip and I couldn't have asked for more. So far I've been on about 5 or 6 trips (maybe more) and it exceeds expectations every time!
