Stéphanie Balmir Villedrouin, Haiti's Minister of Tourism, has been promoting Haiti as a popular tourist destination in the U.S. and Canada lately. Now in another effort to make Haiti a comfortable travel destination, she is proposing a Tourist Police force to monitor streets and sidewalks, adjacent to restaurants, hotels, and other tourist spots in Haiti. Recently, she held meetings with airport o¬fficials to deploy an escort service to deliver travelers from the airport to the front steps of their hotels.
Villedrouin wants the Tourist Police to keep panhandlers at bay, when tourists are visiting any tourist spot. Why she asks, should tourists be asked to subsidize our homeless on Haiti's streets? The begging for money has got to stop, she insists.
Tipping is a customary practice in most countries. The restaurant industry has set a range of percentages they feel are correct for tipping whether you in the U.S., Canada and why not in Haiti . For satisfactory service it is 15% of the sum of the bill. Above that means service was good to exceptional, up to 20%. Up to 25% indicates service was excellent.
If a wine steward has chosen you a wine that has made your dining experience enjoyable, either tip them directly or add it to the server's tip.
