It was okay. The fort is under renovations so we didn’t get a chance to go inside but the view was amazing. I’ve been inside once before, I really wanted my bf to see the inside.

The guys there want to give you a tour, it’s nice to hear the history but of course they all want money. You can’t go into the fort only around it. It’s big local hang out place on weekends.

This was a lovely escape away from the heart of the city. The site is currently being repaired; so we were unable to view all parts of the fort ... I hope to visit on my next trip.

I visited here once in 2015 and it was pretty neat. Went back in May of 2016 and was disappointed that the restoration work was actually destroying the existing structure. There was rubbish everywhere, inside and outside of the Fort... even the local guides didn't...More

Disclaimer: Unfortunately, the fort was closed due to damage from the 2010 earthquake, so I wasn't able to take a look inside or walk around without putting my safety at risk. My cousin tells me restoration will begin next year. I was surprised to see...More

If you visit Haiti as a westerner, you will stick out. Especially if you decide to leave an orphanage you're volunteering at to go for a walk. Our walk ended up taking a couple hours and we ended up (with local friends who joined us),...More

One of the great things about Port-au-Prince is that you can always find sweeping views of the city, but in my book Fort Jacques stands out. The fact that it's near the top of the central valley means that it's cool and mosquito-free (figure about...More
