Ryan Trapp (USA):
(October 2009) I visited Jacmel on a day trip from Port-au-Prince. It was an easy three hour drive up one of the best roads in the entire country and provided excellent views throughout. The city itself was very walkable and pleasant with nice breezes flowing off the Caribbean Sea. The old New Orleans-style wrought iron architecture was particularly attractive. Compared to the hustle of Port-au-Prince, Jacmel was a very laid back place and a great way to spend a day wandering around. I recommend hiring a driver to take you there for the day. The only other transport would be jam-packed buses that take much longer and are uncomfortable.
