Standing at an elevation of 2275 meters the park is characterized by alpine forest, green meadows, and interesting flora and fauna. The park was established in 1983 and is notable for providing excellent birdwatching opportunities. The park houses more than 80 different bird species some of which may be not seen anywhere else.

Labadie


Labadie is a beautiful port located on the north-coast, Haiti.  Labadie is a private resort that is accessible to the tourist.
