Safe travel to Haiti

edited January 2010 in - General Caribbean

My son's school is taking a trip to Haiti in February. They have made this trip 3 times in previous years. Mainly in Port au Prince at an orphanage. After mush research, it appears that Haiti is not a safe place at all to travel to. High crime, violent crime, kidnappings, political unrest and minimal police security. Should I allow my 12 year old son to travel with a group from his school on this trip? I think it would be an eye opening experience for him but I want him to be safe. Any advice would help

    Did you receive any further information? My daughter also wants to go with her college in May. Although she is old enough, I would still worry about her and welcome any comments from those who have gone. Thanks
