There are several famous hotels in the town, including Hotel Cyvadier, Hotel Florita and high-end Cap Lamandou Hotel.

Jacmel is rich in beaches. People often come here to have fun at the local beaches and enjoy the warmth of the sun. However, the beach is not the only attraction in this town. There are historic places that people flock to. Among these are the Cathedrale de St. Philippe and Maison Cadet. Jacmel's market is a famous spot for tourists as well as this is where people can buy Carnival masks and find restaurants offering various Creole foods.
