Location of Chauffard in Haiti

It takes approximately 3-4 hours to make the journey from the Capital Port-au-Prince to Chauffard. An off-road 4×4 is essential as the road is very poor and can be impassable in wet conditions. The journey is rough and bumpy but the destination is worth it.

The destination is so beautiful we have even used it as the background to our website, however this photo captures the severe deforestation in the area and the surrounding hillsides.
