Man-made village on RCCL man-made vacation island...paradise cove is picturesque, but not real Haiti. Village has local crafts for souvenirs, decent restaurants with cool libations. Worth getting off the ship for an afternoon.

This was a beautiful place to visit and well worth the money. No, its not an "authentic" Haitian village, but they replicate some of the artisans and craftspeople of Haiti. About a 1/2 hour walk through some wonderful paths, explaining some of the ecology of the island, followed by a somewhat private beach and bar (only the 20 or so... More

This man made stop by Royal Caribbean is just that....Four of us wasted our money and a day to travel over to Amiga Island...hoping for some snorkeling....What a joke...The only thing you could see was the filth that Royal Caribbean has allowed to litter the bottom of the shores. They should use their employees to clean up the trash and... More

Good morning sunshinebythesea. I'm afraid you have left a review for a different tour/experience on our page. Our tour does not visit Amiga Island, but rather Paradise Cove. We are asking that you move this review to the proper page. Thank you! More

As this was our first trip to Haiti we at least wanted to try and see something of the place outside of the sanitised Royal Caribbean Tropical Disneyland of Laberdee and this sounded the best bet. It’s only about 15 -20 minutes around the coast from Laberdee and again is a safe location as it’s a private beach area that... More

Excellent trip and experience! Definitely recommended. We chose his excursion from the RCI Allure of the Seas. Short and educational boat ride over to the cove where you can relax on a pristine beach in clear blue water. Requires a short walk in knee deep water from the boat to the beach. Complimentary rum punch when you arrive. Take a... More

Our first shore experience did not disappoint. Traveling with a group from age 1 in stroller, to Grandma 55 on mobility scooter. Very clean island peninsula. Bathrooms were clean and had an attendant. Paved pathways made getting around a pleasure. Drinks and food provided by ships staff were delicious. Plenty of shade structures with views of the beach. Great entertainment... More

It was a nice place to visit, Haiti is a great historical land. More people should visit if you really need to know about black history.

My family and I decided to do this tour/excursion from our cruise ship (RCI-Allure of the Seas). I had read the reviews before deciding on this excursion and therefore THOUGHT I was prepared for the encounter with the Haitian vendors on the tour stop; several reviews stated vendors were aggressive. I wanted to get away from Labadee because I wanted... More
