I couldn’t find any Getty photos of Clinton in Haiti, but here’s the most recent one I could find of her in the Caribbean. It was during the presidential primaries last year, when she campaigned in Puerto Rico.

Democratic presidential hopeful U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) waves to supporters from a truck as she drives through the streets May 31, 2008, in Cataño, Puerto Rico. Clinton is campaigning in Puerto Rico ahead of the caucus to be held on Sunday [June 1].

And while I was searching Getty Images for Hillary-in-the-Caribbean photos, I came upon this old romantic one from the archives:
