Les Cayes Croix des 4 Chemins

Aux Cayes, better known as Les Cayes, is a town situated on the southern coast of Haiti's Tiburon Peninsula.

The town has survived plagues, pirate invasions, fires, and hurricanes. Its most noted event was when Simon Bolivar used the port as a strategic spot to receive weaponry and infantry units to fight the Spanish and liberate South America.

Les Cayes contains a teeming port that exports sugar, coffee beans, bananas, cotton, lumber, and animal hides.
