Haiti is a complicated environment with a tortured economy. There are plenty of opinions on "why" but this isn't a political blog; we sell security and logistic services in Haiti.
All resources are scarce in Haiti and have become more so since the devastating earthquake on January 12, 2010. With careful, meticulous planning, the limited resources available can be stretched to ensure the complete satisfaction of our security clients. Planning is the key.
Suffice it to say, the more notice we have of your plans, the longer we have to plan and the better your rates for security in Haiti.
