Buying Haitian products -- visiting Haiti as a tourist among other exports -- is one of the best opportunities for Haiti to build wealth. Building wealth and re-developing the Haitian middle class is the best route to breaking the cycle of disaster, international aid, and deterioration of Haiti's capacity to support itself. Contrary to some who believe that Haiti's infrastructure isn't ready for tourism, Haiti needs more, not less.
Mainstream tourism is only starting. On the other hand, Haiti is a prime destination for Adventure Tourism and Eco-tourism. It appeals to those that seek the adventure. Furthermore, adventure tourists are more likely to spread the word with pictures, videos, and stories that eventually provides the inspiration for those less adventurous to venture here.
Holiday in Haiti, and the story and motivation of this group of paraglider pilots is a great example of that. Their video has inspired more than one to put Haiti on their travel schedule.
