About this trip

Join Haitian Nomad on a beautiful trip to one of Haiti's most paradise islands! Île-à-Vache, (also expressed Île-à-Vaches, former Spanish name Isla Vaca; all translate to Cow Island) is a Caribbean island, one of Haiti's satellite islands. It lies in the Baie de Cayes about 6.5 miles (10.5 km) off the coast of the country's southwest peninsula, roughly between the town of Les Cayes and Pointe l'Abacou. It was formerly known by the name of Abacca. Administratively, it became a commune in 1976 as part of the Les Cayes Arrondissement in the Sud department.

Île-à-Vache was claimed by the Spanish Empire in 1492 as part of Hispaniola, and for the next two centuries it was known by the name Isla Vaca. In 1697 the island of Hispaniola was formally divided between Spain and France in the Treaty of Ryswick which ended the Nine Years War. France assumed control of the western half of Hispaniola and named it Saint-Domingue, and Isla Vaca took on its current name, Île-à-Vache.


On this trip, you'll be staying on the island's best beachside resort with some rooms directly on the beach , you'll enjoy some amazing views and indulge in some amazing Haitian food.

The trip to South Africa was rerouted to Dubai and I had a great time. Haitian Nomad and Richard did everything they could to turn around an amazing trip in a short amount of time. We did many things including Dubai Expo 2020, NYE in front of the Burj Khalifa, and more but what was great about traveling with Haitian Nomad was that we were taken care of every step of the way. i I really didn't have to think or pay attention much and that is just what I wanted, I just went along with the flow and had a great experience. I highly recommend Haitian Nomad for travelers who don't want to plan but want to see as much as possible and do as much as possible on a trip with a great group of people.

This one is finally checked off my bucket list!! Fantastic trip with an exceptional group of travelers. The guide was awesome, witty and knowledgeable. The experience of a lifetime. I climbed some steps of the pyramid, kissed the sphinx, pinched the tip of the pyramids, walked along the mighty Nile, got quite acquainted with Mick (my camel), visited the tombs, walked along the villagers in an authentic village town, ran from a wall-climbing mouse in said authentic village, skipped in the temples, walked like an Egyptians, cruised along the Nile and even got in the water...Oh my, how my heart hurt as I moved from one event to another because my body simply could not process the beauty that met my eyes at every stop...it went on and on and I am grateful for every memory. Thanks Haitian Nomad for the making this event one I will talk about forever.

What an amazing experience. Richard and his team are just wonderful. I had a great and perfect grip to celebrate my birthday. Met someone great people whom I cannot wait to see on another trip. Thank you once again for a memorable experience.

We're so glad we went on the first Mystery Trip with the Haitian Nomad!! We made history!! Mauritius was a vacation of a lifetime!! It's been on my list of places I'd love to visit one day and the Haitian Nomad made my dream come true!! We were able to visit cultural sites as well as spend a day on a catamaran watching dolphins and getting all the sun we wanted! The group of people on this trip were amazing and we were able to make new friends and hang out with some old ones! As always we felt as if the trip delivered more than what we paid for and we cannot wait to go on our next trip with the Haitian Nomad! We tell all our friends to sign up to get all the info and travel with us because you won't regret ANY trip with the Haitian Nomad!! Hands down best travel company we have ever used!!! ❤️

As always, I thoroughly enjoyed this Haitian Nomad Trip! My CVO, Richard Cantave always mixes the right amount of educational/cultural experiences, and leisure time for his trips, and the mystery trip was no exception! The suspense leading up to the trip was fun and while some may join as strangers, you always leave with lifelong memories and friends!

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!
