Geography / Tourism in Haiti
English term or phrase: Haitian Alps
The context is the following: The attractions of Haiti, namely the culture, which includes voodoo, the Haitian Alps, and the beaches, are overshadowed by the unstable political system. (Book on tourism)

I have checked for the term in English and possible Spanish translations, and I have tried to find the area in maps of Haiti but have not been successful. Would sincerely appreciate your help.

Alpes haitianos
Explanation:
Yo usaría «Alpes haitianos», sin ningún complejo.

Es un tanto «extraño», pero al mismo tiempo tiene su «gancho» de cierto misterio, y cierta gracia...

¿Es que hay «Alpes» en Haití? ;-))

Saludos.
