Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Do not visit this area it is continually the venue for what we call manifieststions or riots gunshots a weekly occur ace , some tear gas over the past month tyre burning nearly every day. This is Haiti’s disgrace, it’s on the edge of the worst areas in Port au Prince. It is not safe on the streets for anyone who is not black. Never carry bags, wear expensive jewellery and never open your wallet to a beggar . It’s common practise here for thugs to watch your movements particularly to the banks and then rob you at gunpoint almost always resulting in the victims death. I fear every time I walk out I’m my school to go to the bank or to the stationers a matter of meters away. My recommendation to anyone who plans to visit...DONT. It’s violent filth and racist.

We read about this prior to arriving in Mauritius and thought it would be worth a visit. Very laid back and enjoyable. This racecourse is open every Saturday and is the oldest in the Southern Hemisphere.
A bit of fun whether you are into horse racing or not. Enjoyed by the locals and visitors.
Worth paying to go into the stands for 200RS and the women go in for free.

I recently took a colleague from the states to visit the Chanmas area of Port. We walked the streets around it, visiting notable monuments, museums, etc. The best experience was shopping for souvenirs. Albeit a bit aggressive, there's nothing quite like enjoying an ice cold Prestige in the open air markets while negotiating prices, joking around with the vendors, and enjoying the beautiful weather!

Don't go without a local guide as beware of pickpockets. If you're looking for various trinkets and souvenirs, this is a good place to shop

This is a must see when coming to Haiti. There a lot to do down there from food,music and lots of cultural things. I love it down there. There is a museum there and it has a lot of great history. There’s also lots of little shops and stands to buy artwork and souvenirs. The people are a little pushy but that’s expected. Overall great place to spend time when in port au prince.

Champ de Mars is a beautiful public square in the capital of Haiti. Several statues of Haiti's founding fathers dot Champs de Mars. Namely, Toussaint Louverture, Jean-Jacques Dessalines, Alexander Pétion and Henri Christophe, Le Marron Inconnu (the Unknown Slave), the priceless statue of the unknown slave blowing a conch-shell trumpet.

You must see this neighborhood because it is the spot where true revolution took place many times. It is a place of the people and you can feel it. A nice park filled with the locals and it is very safe though it may not appear that way to foreigners. Have something to eat and see the friendliness of the people.

... the rest of the city, and the rest of the whole country.

A part of it includes the carefully kept gardens around the national Pantheon. Guess what, these gardens are well kept. They include a view at the nearby senseless unfinished pyramid of some local dictator, dedicated to himself, and which final aim is, to this day, unknown. Although an eyesore, this serves as a representative symbol of the whole country.

The rest of the place is littered with garbage, 'shops' based upon a cardboard box, and idle people who find shadows of trees there. This would be a societal eyesore, but the local atmosphere, definitely authentic, does for the whole. A few local people with portable electronics show sporting events, drinks are available from the above-mentioned boutiques, in an apparently quiet and civilized atmosphere. Such a simple setup, together with the quasi-absence of foreign tourists (recognizable as these are the only non-black there), make it a place for peace and quietness.

This is the place to be if you want to hang out in Port-au-Prince in the afternoon , if you want to enjoy a beer , or if you just want to watch local people . Meeting haitians and starting a conversation is really made easy while sitting at this gathering point while enjoying a drink or an icecream !

Its a gathering place, at least that's what it was created for. It is ugly, dirty and laden with merchants selling their wares in droves. Expect to be assaulted with people in your face to buy souvenirs. It is best to go there around sunset ore early evening not the afternoon and late nights.
