Welcome to Petit Goave or more commonly known in Haiti: Ti GoaveFormerly called Guava by the Taïnos people (the first inhabitants of the island), Ti Goave is one of the oldest cities in Haiti.

We owe the fame of this coastal town to its pineapples which are the best in the region but also to its Douce Makos which is a candy made from milk and sugar. 

Ti Goave is also dream beaches like Bananier and Kokoye Beach that look like postcards; but also hills as far as the eye can see which offer an exceptional view over the bay of Ti Goave.

Moreover, we also take you to discover the hills on the Vallue site to meet our partner who works in sustainable tourism while offering a unique experience to travelers.

Your itinerary

Day 1: Discovery of Ti Goave + Meeting our local partner

What makes the beauty of Ti Goave is also its seaside which offers a magnificent view of its bay. The day will continue on the coasts, meeting our local partner, which is an association for the protection of the maritime environment.

A port city, Miragoane is one of the main Haitian commercial ports. We owe the name of Miragoane to the first Spanish settlers who named it so because of the strong presence of iguanas in the city.

Your guide will take the opportunity to take you to see the remains of Fort Réfléchi which was built in order to prevent a possible return of the French, after the independence of Haiti.

PAP’PADAP! Travels invites you to continue visiting the city, to discover  Miragoane Lake, which is one of the largest freshwater lakes in the country. Located in the middle of the mountains, several streams and ravines feed the lake, in particular the Pineau source, from the western part of the Selle Mountain chain.
