In the aftermath of the Earthquake in Haiti, relief organizations started bringing in much-needed supplies. At that time, there were many organizations trying to figure out how to creating housing out of containers. While containers are a flexible option perfect for such a project, making it a reality is not always as easy. However, one group did create a hotel using containers – The Caribbean Lodge in Port-au-Prince.
Recently a friend of Super Cubes was doing relief work in Haiti and stayed at the Caribbean Lodge. He is also a skilled photographer, so was so kind to bring back pictures of his stay. The container hotel has single and double rooms which have twin beds or twin bunk-beds and a private bathroom. Hotel amenities include internet access, a restaurant and swimming pool.
