The quake, which hit Haiti on January 12, 2010, killed hundreds and thousands of people and affected an estimated three million people.

Travel company G Adventures has launched five departures, starting in February 2015.

In 2013, the company was approached by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to assess and report on Haiti’s tourism potential.

Jeff Russill, VP of innovation at G Adventures, travelled to Haiti to help assess its readiness for travellers.

"We weren’t sure what we would find when we arrived, but what we discovered was a country full of friendly people looking to move on, world-class art and culture, real-time history, and stunning nature and beaches," he said.

"We’re looking forward to bringing our travellers here to experience this strong culture, to spend locally and help Haiti fully recover."

The return is timely, as Haiti has just opened its first tourism office and appointed a consultant to Europe, Jean-Marc Flambert, to help rebuild the country’s reputation as an attractive tourist destination.
