It’s impossible to choose just one thing that’s special about Labadee. Christopher Columbus was the first European to set foot on this spectacular peninsula of Hispaniola in 1492, when the Santa Maria ran aground off the coast on Christmas Day. Five centuries later, it was transformed into Labadee, a tropical retreat and playground, created exclusively for its guests. The inviting beach, coral reefs and exciting amenities provide a perfect place to relax and have fun. Labadee is the ultimate private destination for cruise vacationers – and our guests will have it all to themselves for the day. Adventure, exploration and relaxation are just the beginning of what Labadee has to offer. Looking to unleash adrenaline? Strap on a helmet and harness, and soar down 500 feet on the Dragon’s Breath Flight Line, the world’s longest zip line over water. Curious to explore Haiti’s unique culture and incredible landscapes? Explore Haitian life, its coastline, flora and fauna on one of our exciting shore excursions and tours. Ready to kick back, relax and sip a refreshing cocktail? Get the VIP treatment while unwinding beachside in our private cabanas. Labadee’s seven neighborhoods each offer distinct ambience from total relaxation to high-energy thrills, but wherever you are, you’ll be captivated by the breathtaking land and seascapes.
