Port-au-Prince is an International Airport in Haiti (named after the Capital city) that gives a warm welcome to all the travelers. This Airport is served by many International Airlines, which runs - to and fro every day. Port-au-Prince International Airport is officially called as Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Haiti.
After arriving at the Airport, the tourist can reach to their hotel destination through shuttle or a taxi. Renting a car is a good option as it is readily available near the Airport, but public transport in Haiti is reported to be very efficient, rather than hiring a car. The most popular form of public transport in Haiti is the ‘Tap Tap’ taxi, which is a brightly painted pickup taxi-truck. It has a capacity of 20-30 people, which is often filled with the maximum capacity.
The visitors, who reach Haiti from Dominican Republic, have two options to enter Haiti - one through the North end and other through the South end. The crossing at the south of Haiti is located in the city of Port-au-Prince. Travelers, who wish to stay in Haiti or travel through the Airport, prefer to stay in this city, as it has easy access to the airport. There is a departure tax in Haiti for travelers who wish to travel between locations. This tax is normally inexpensive and it is charged as a general traveling fee and standard airfare.
