Labadee is a port situated on Haiti's northern coast. It is a private resort that is leased until 2050 to Royal Caribbean Cruises. Since 1986, the cruise company has contributed the biggest proportion of tourist revenue to Haiti, employing 300 locals and allowing another 200 to sell wares on the premises for a fee, and paying the government of Haiti US$12 per tourist.
The resort is entirely tourist-oriented, and guarded by private security force. Cruisers are not allowed to leave the property - the site is fenced off from surrounding area and food available to travelers is brought from the ships. Controlled Haitian merchants are given the sole rights to sell merchandise and establish businesses in the resort. Though sometimes described in advertisements as an island, Labadee is actually a peninsula contiguous with Hispaniola Island. The cruise ships moor to the pier at Labadee which was completed in late 2009 and is capable of servicing Oasis class ships.
Labadee attractions include beaches, watersports, water-oriented playground, alpine coaster, zip-line and a Haitian flea market.
