Haiti is a small island country that is located in the Caribbean between Cuba and Puerto Rico. Haiti and the Caribbean are located between North and South America, and they are surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.

The Caribbean region, and all of the countries located in it, is known for having tropical weather year-round. While Haiti is not one of the largest Caribbean islands, it has the second highest population of any of the countries at just over 10.7 million people. The primary languages of Haiti are French and Haitian Creole, although both languages share most words and structure.
