The Hotel Florita was hit hard by the earthquake. We include these photos to show our dedication to Jacmel. It was difficult and expensive to rebuild so extensively. In fact, plans to expand the hotel, and build peasant-style houses on beachfront we have in Ti Mouillage, were derailed as we spent those funds saving The Florita and making it safe (it is sturdier now than it was before the earthquake). If anyone knows of a good grant writer or the availability of low-interest loans please let us know. Two of our courtyard rooms destroyed in the earthquake have still not been rebuilt.
