Ile a Vache Primed for Tourist Push to Haiti

After conducting preliminary reviews of several spots on Haiti, the Ministry of Tourism and the government of Haiti (GOH) have selected areas they have determined to possess the greatest potential for development of Haiti's tourist industry. One of the selected locales is the resort isle of Ile a Vache.


A complete overhaul of Ile a Vache's infrastructure has steadily been taking place. The Ministry of Communication announced not long ago the completion, or near completion of a half a dozen projects is readying the town for a future major influx of tourism. Projects include dredging of the land for new resort structures, a newly-built courthouse, renovated police station, new school, and placement of 250 street lights. To demonstrate the seriousness of its efforts to attract more tourist dollars, the GOH has also constructed an airstrip outside the city limits, and is in the process of erecting an airport terminal and hangars. Preliminary planning for 1,000 premium hotel units, an archaeology museum, night life infrastructure, cultural destinations, and retail establishments are also being readied.

GOH has spent a large portion of the $50 million USD allotted to Ile a Vache's preparation as a major tourist destination. With its location, lying off Les Cayes' southeastern coast, it is an ideal get-away, with astounding views from many parts of the island. The Ministry of Tourism says, "The development of 1,000 units would make Ile a Vache among the largest ongoing tourism projects in the Caribbean."
