On a recent trip to the Caribbean, I visited the small port of Labadee, Haiti. Labadee is located on the northern coast of Hispaniola, close to the Haiti border with the Dominican Republic. Royal Caribbean International holds a private lease on the area until the year 2050 and according to the all-knowing Wikipedia the government of Haiti pockets US$6 on each tourist that crosses the cruise ship gangplank on to the sands of Labadee.
As a visitor, Labadee is a surreal place to visit. A postcard perfect beach locale complete with transplanted palms. I did a short tour to the perimeter of the tourist compound to find high fences, locked gates, barb wire, and sentry guards facing inward. Tourists locked in and Haiti fenced out.
