Baraderes: Mystical Venice of Haiti

Venice, internationally renowned for two things, is literally comparable to Baraderes for the same interesting aspects which are the River like canal, and the Carnivalesque activities.

Baraderes, located in the Nippes department of Haiti, is partly isolated and elongated with beautiful river coastlines that make a boat ride an unforgettable experience. This town is easily accessible by boats instead of car transportation due to its stiffed rocky unpaved roads. Personally, I have attempted twice to reach there by car, but I feared for my car and the roadside safety was a major concern.

Similarly to Pestel, which is another town of the Nippes department of Haiti, is somewhat identical to a certain extent. They are both coastal towns. They have a great deal of lush vegetation and coffee crops that make them a lucrative market for coffee growers and sellers. The three kilometers upstream narrow river for its main street gives rise to this beautiful old town of Baraderes.

Town of Baraderes, rich in Coffee Production

Baradères, capital of the Baradères Arrondissement, formed in 2003 as part of Nippes Department. A commune with a population of 30,000, situated on the northwest peninsula of Haiti, it is well known for its agricultural output. Local farming, an economic force in the village, yields enough crops, to maintain a subsistence standard of living.

Baradères one export is coffee, beginning its exportation in 2006. The roasting technique creates an intensely-flavored and sweet French Roast. The fair-trade coffee produces enough profits to erect schools and medical facilities in Nippes Department.

Baradères terrain contains mountain ranges and vales, extending 60-plus miles away from the center. Homesteading occurs mostly in the vales, more hospitable for farming. Baradères River streams through the vales, pouring into the Gulf de la Gonave about a mile out of the village.
