What to do in Haiti: The country where the dead are celebrated

Haiti is a fascinating nation that holds treasures such as the Laferrière Citadel, the largest fortress in the Western Hemisphere, built after the country's independence. Don't forget to visit Cap-Haïtien, the coastal city that enchants with its colonial architecture, and the vibrant capital, Port-au-Prince, where street artists bring life and color to the city's streets.


The local currency is the Haitian gourde and the official languages are French and Haitian Creole. And the good news for us Brazilians is that we don't need a visa to visit Haiti for up to 90 days.

Regarding the socioeconomic and political situation, Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the Americas, facing important challenges. However, the energy and resilience of the Haitian people are contagious and inspiring.


Now, about the curiosity of our title. In Haiti, celebrations of the dead are known as Fet Gede, a large celebration where people visit cemeteries, decorate tombs and dance in honor of their ancestors. It is a very particular way of remembering and honoring those who have passed away.
