A journey to the hidden paradise of Haiti's north coast. We designed a safari-style, tented camp on a 150 acre private beach cove to serve an extraordinary ecosystem and group of mountain villages only accessible by boat and foot. It is a cultural immersion unlike any, led by our incredible host, Dillon Mangs, whose family has lived in Labadie since the 70's. Their relationships in the village unlock something singular.
The experience is as much about adventure and discovery as it about respite and a family formed in the jungle. We offset the carbon footprint of all trips with Terrapass and invest the dues of our member community and contributions made by travelers in three partners driving solutions for artisan entrepreneurship, access to quality education, and eco-sanitation solutions.
His epic parents built a home in Labadie in 1977 and are beloved in the community. He grew up fishing with the locals and playing soccer with the village kids.
Junot is our camp manager, a member of Port Francais village, and a guy as sweet as Haitian mango. He leads our community visits and impact work in the village.
Lisa has been coming to Haiti ever since she started making out with Dillon. She's an entire ocean of joy and leads the team of women who run our camp like a family hotel.

VILLAGE, ISLAND, VIBES
Our journeys are inspired by the experiential blueprint of safaris, which is a beautiful balance of adventure, respite and surprise. Below is a frame for our journey which takes final shape with the unique happenings of each specific week. As with all Kin trips, we encourage you to join all that inspires you and opt-out of whatever you'd like to have a Swiss Family Robinson hideaway all to yourself.
A big part of our purpose in Haiti is to act as an alter for her natural and cultural beauty. Our trip takes place on the north coast which is largely only accessible by boat and foot. You'll land in Cap-Haitien, the second largest city in Haiti, and venture 30 minutes by car to Labadie and 30 minutes by boat to Kay Moy, our private 150 acre, Jurassic Park hideaway.
