Labadee is on a peninsula on the north coast of Hispaniola, otherwise known as Haiti. Hispaniola was the name Christopher Columbus gave to the entire island shared by the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Recent political unrest made Haiti an undesirable destination, but Royal Caribbean has cordoned off a remote portion of this island, and the totally safe and private compound provides guests an opportunity to experience the magnificent beauty of this region.
The powdery sand beach is surrounded by magnificent mountains and lush foliage and crystal clear water..
Royal Caribbean has made improvements and updated this island paradise to include a new water park (additional entrance fee). This island, with five different beach areas, offers more than just a beach experience, however. A number of the optional shore excursions allow a glimpse into the local culture and its rich history.
