Is it currently safe in 2018/going-on 2019 for an American to travel to Haiti? Is it at least safe to visit Port au Prince? I am an Asian American who can speak minimal French.[/Q I have been in Haiti so many times I cannot count them over the past 15 years, I actually lived in Haiti for a couple of years full time in the Port au Prince area and I am living in Haiti now and I have been to most places on this island. It is not a safe place for the average traveler and I don't recommend someone going to Haiti without a mentor the first couple of times you go to help you acclimate to the culture. I love Haiti, but some do not, it is not a place for the faint of heart. I have friends there who have lived there for up to 40 years as Americans and have few problems. It is my opinion that most Haitians are very good people, very passionate about almost everything.
Reports in the media are saying there are less Haitians returning to their homeland from the DR for the holidays. Normally the holiday departures begin early in December, by full bus loads, not this year.

I don't think it's safe in Haiti for anyone, including Haitians , at this moment in time.
Just met a single female who was travelling with a group of women in Haiti and the youngest girl at 15 got separated from the group, she knows not how and was raped by three men and became pregnant. The little result is two and quite cute she says.I've just looked through this discussion and didn't understand why it can be dangerous to visit Haiti?
