I visited Morancy, a small fishermen village, located South of Port-au-Prince about 20 miles to Les Cayes. Morancy offers a natural beauty that summons the soul and overwhelms many visitors. The economic potential of the village is apparent. But the association of economic development of Morancy is unable to attract investment because of the difficulty of accessing the village on the poor road. Many agencies have promised to help but their assurances have not materialized yet. The people remain hopeful. For now, the proud villagers live of fish and small scale agriculture of subsistence awaiting for support to help them finish the road.
The fishermen welcome backpacking visitors and there are possibilities of housing in the village. People have the possibility of spending a night with the villagers but prior arrangement is required ahead of time. If you are interested in visiting Morancy, don’t hesitate to contact me at and I will connect you with the community leaders directly.

The Morancy family of the late 1700s
Is this the area where the Morancy family held land in Haiti? was the port of Les Cayes the port where the Morancy children were loaded aboard a British cargo ship to escape the rebellion?

The Morancy family
Noland: This is a great piece of history that few people know about. It is believed the same Morancy but I would need to do some research to confirm the information. Thank you for this insight.
