It's a quick trip back to the US. 90 minutes to Miami/Fort Lauderdale or 2.5 hours to Atlanta. However, if you are flying from the west coast to Port au Prince, you either have to take a red-eye to Atlanta or Miami or spend the night. - Apr 2017

As a Foreign Service Officer I do not have a home base. Haiti is home. But it is nice to be just a quick flight to Miami. With enough notice, a roundtrip ticket on American Airlines is under US$300. This was a surprising and unexpected benefit of being so close to the U.S. since we were used to long flights from Africa. We get to the U.S. every several months. You need the break, sometimes. - Sep 2013

A two hour flight from Miami, but flights are exorbitantly expensive. - Sep 2011
