Port-de-Paix Transports Tourists by Ferry and Air
Port-de-Paix is the Northwest Department capital, made up of four districts: Port-de-Paix, Bassin Bleu, Chansolme, and Tortuga Island. It is a rich agricultural area, growing coffee, bananas, tobacco, rice, and cacao. Because the city is accessible to the U.S. via the Atlantic, smuggling thrives in Port-de-Paix.
Port-de-Paix is served by many airlines. They offer flights from Port-de-Paix Airport to international airports, located in Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haitien. A ferry carries tourists between the beautiful beaches of Port-de-Paix and Tortuga Island.
