This was my second Haitian Nomad trip & once again they outdid themselves. It’s such an amazing thing to just have to show up on a vacation & not have to worry about anything because they’ve planned the perfect trip. The food was amazing. The people are great & the accommodations are top notch. Salute to Haitian Nomad!

It was a joy to leave the stress and headaches of 2020 behind and just show up for an absolutely wonderful vacation. Haitian Nomads did not disappoint. Every detail was attended to from the local hotel, to the daily excursions, to the local restaurants, to a fabulous local guide who spent the week at our beck and call, to free time for relaxing or interacting with the locals. Haitian Nomads organizer, Richard Cantave, made sure we visited not only the tourist attractions, but local places off the beaten path. He also made sure that all of our needs were attended to. If you want a vacation where all you have to do is show up, a trip with Haitian Nomads is just what you need.

I had an Ahhh-MAZING time! This was my first "grown up field trip," and I was a little hesitant to book a trip with strangers. The trip exceeded my expectations--the group was full of interesting, engaging, upbeat people (some HN repeaters; some newbies like me). Those familiar with HN did a great job of setting the tone for the week and within a day it felt like we were some odd little mismatched family :). Restaurants ranged from casual to fancy, tours were engaging and informative, our tour guide Fallou was engaging and delightful, the hotel was cute and boutique. Richard is communicative, often responding within minutes of an inquiry, both before I booked all the way through the trip. EVERYTHING was taken care of; literally, all I had to do was relax and be at the van when it was time to go. Senegal is a beautiful country with friendly, outgoing, beautiful people. The agenda did a good job of blending cultural experiences: history, shopping, monuments, museums, and outdoor. The hotel was great--and I want to give a special shoutout to our genuine and kind breakfast hostess, Fatou, who got us going every morning! There is no time to be tired or bored. If you're on the fence, book this trip. :). Make sure your COVID-19 test has the letters PCR written boldly and clearly on your results, or you will have a delay at the airport.

I had the time of my life with the love of my life by my side. This was truly a dream come true. Richard was extremely extremely extremely polite, helpful & knowledgeable. It was my dream to celebrate my 30th in Maldives and it was nothing short of amazing. The experience, the people, the food, the scenery.....it was everything!

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!

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!
