Haiti has an east-west extension of 2.7 degrees of longitude. Given the country's location in Caribbean, this corresponds to about 290 kilometers. With such a small extent the course of the sun at different positions in the country hardly matters. The position of the sun in the west of the country deviates from that in the east only about 11 minutes. This means the sun rises and sets 11 minutes later in the west than in the east.
