Carnival to build port on Haiti's Tortuga Island

Carnival Corp. has signed a letter of intent to develop a $70 million port facility in Tortuga, an island off the northern coast of Haiti.

The cruise company said it envisions a “new and exciting destination for ship itineraries traveling in the Caribbean.”

“The development will create an exciting opportunity for our guests to enjoy a new, secluded and stunning destination in the island of Tortuga that the company expects will become a very popular place for guests to enjoy for years to come,” said David Candib, vice president of development and operations for Carnival Corp.’s global port and destination development group.

“At the same time, this commitment will initially stimulate significant development and construction activities, and then tourism business once the port is open, that will create a tremendous economic impact for the people of Haiti.”

Other Carnival-owned ports in the Caribbean are Mahogany Bay, Roatan; Half Moon Cay, Bahamas; Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos; and Puerta Maya, Cozumel. Amber Cove is under development in Puerta Plata, Dominican Republic.
