PRESIDENTE VERANO 2017 WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO VERANO!
A LITTLE PROBLEM WITH A SOSUA REAL ESTATE PURCHASE...READ THIS
As we have written about several times in the past. You can be Einstein or a PHD in physics from Oxford.
But when guys arrive here their brains shrink to the size of walnuts and all common sense goes out the
window. A friend of ours bought a house nine years ago in Sosua. The problem is the he bought without
getting a proper survey or deslinda as its called here. All this time has passed and thousands spent on
attorney fees, still no results. He would like to sell, but must sell at a dramatically reduced price. What a
mess. We recommend going to Coldwell Banker or several other RE pros in town. Offer one of them the
listing if they get this problem take care of. Or how about just leading or renting and just enjoying this
place? Selling a house here can take a year on average and owners must make huge price cuts during
that time. All the RE offices in Sosua do huge leasing business. Nothing wrong with doing this.
Sosua Beach is a small beach town located on the
North Coast of the Dominican Republic. It is located
between Cabarete, ten minutes to the East and Puerto
Plata, thirty minutes to the West. Sosua is a legendary
party town known for its lively nightlife, bars and
discos. Sosua Main Beach is one of the most beautiful
beaches in the Caribbean and is lined with close to
150 bars and restaurants. The water is gin clear and
is famous for scuba, snorkeling or just sitting back
and having a cold Presidente Beer on a Sunday
afternoon. Sosua also stirs up a huge amount of
controversy which keeps us busy trying to keep up.
Stay tuned for all the Sosua news and eventos from
this tiny town. Never a dull moment in Sosua Beach
SO WHAT DO WE REALLY LIKE ABOUT SOSUA AND THE DR?
HALLOWEEN 2016 SOSUA, PUERTO PLATA AND CABARETE...LETS PARTY!
INTRODUCING SOSUA BEACH
AND A GREAT CARNIVAL SEASON 2017 HAS FINALLY ENDED. ONE HELL OF A PARTY!
Carnival season has finally ended with the grand finale Sunday in Puerto Plata. And on the fifth in
Santo Domingo and both cities went all out. Both had great street parades and post parade
concerts on huge sound stages. And of course pretty ladies everywhere all the cold Presidente
Beer you can drink. And a huge thanks to Presidente Beer for making all this happen. We also
had a great time in Santiago which also put on a great show. And once again, just a hint to the
rest of Latin America. One weekend of Carnival is not enough. This is a huge money maker so at
least two weeks would be much better. Hear us Rio? Next year we just might be there. Many
more great photos to come. Stay tuned. Much more to come. Not there? Sorry you missed it.
Yes Readers,The Party Crazies at
Presidente Beer, and our good
amigos pimped out an eighteen
wheeler and turned it into a giant
party on wheels. We wish we were
aboard. And keep up the great
work in supporting the party here
in the DR. We appreciate all you do.
THE PRESIDENTE BEER PARTY TRUCK. CARNIVAL SANTIAGO DR 2017
AND WE GOT A GUIDED TOUR OF THE NEW AHNVEE SPORTS RESORT IN SOSUA
WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL SOSUA BEACH. NO MOLESTE POR FAVOR! 3/26/2017
PERFECTO PUERTO PLATA CONGRADS ON AN AMAZING OPENING NIGHT 4/15/2017
After three years and three months, we finally got music. And Puerto Plata did it to absolute perfection.
Just an amazing spectacular show at the new Amphitheater featuring top music acts Chiquito Team
Band, Elvis Martinez, Vakero. johnny Ventura and other top acts. We were stuck late in Cabarete and
missed the first few acts. We finallly found a taxi and d got there and stayed until the concert ended at
2pm. Lots of cold Presidente Beer and no sleep. Just a great day. Maybe the best ever on the
Republica Domicana North Coast. We had a blast. And Thanks to all who put this together including our
frienda at Presidente Beer and Ron Barcelo with its great rum. The local party animals drink their run
straight. No sissy 7UP just straight up wit maybe a little ice. Until the next act, its back to being our gym.
BEACH FEST CABARETE 2017 WAS WILD ROWDY AND JUST PLAIN FUN
JUST HOW WE LIKE IT and we cant get enough of these days. A perfect hot sunny day. Great music and
that drove the hoards of Hot Hot Ladies and the huge crowd into a frenzy. Lots of beer, rum and fun.
And a record crowd. The party started late this year and went all night. Cabarete was just Rockin. A great
time! Of course we cant wait till Beach Fest 2018. We need a Beach Fest every week here in the DR.
We recently payed a great visit to the new Ahnvee Sports Resort in Sosua Beach.
We got a great tour from very professional Anna. The resort features close to 150
luxury suites, three pools, The Crave Steak House, a full service spa and a 24 hr
grill with a fantastic menu. Many of the suites feature in room pools and large
shower areas big enough for all your friends. We like it! The rooms start at around
$180 to $260 for the All Inclusive packages. Single rooms without AI start at $90.
Prices may vary. Now the AI package does not include premium spirits, but does
include very good house brands. But you and your date can eat prime rib, steaks
and lobster in the Crave restaurant. Prices runs around $40 per plate. Not bad. We
like it. The gym is not yet open. Many rooms are still being decorated. And its next
door to the new High Caribbean Disco. You can check in and pay the all inclusive
price, go out and find a date and she can enjoy all the benefits. Shuttles run to
and from Sosua Main Beach all day. The resort is located on the East end of Calle
Pedro Clisante. So lets support these guys. They are investing $ millions and will
give you the five star treatment. The rooms here are far and away the best
appointed in Sosua. Come out and enjoy Sosua and the New Ahnvee Sports Resort
SORRY YOU MISSED
THIS CONCERT ON
6/24. IT WAS A
CLASSIC. JUST A
GREAT NIGHT AT THE
PUERTO PLATA YOU NAILED IT ! ANOTHER FANTASTIC CONCERT 6/24/2017
HIGHWAY CARNAGE CONTINUES AND THE DEATH OF A AMERICAN 6/23/2017 NEWS
CRAZY JUST CRAZY. We were watching the DETRASDELRUMOR.COM.DO news broadcast on JM.TV 12 in
SOSUA OR CANAL 32 IN PUERTO PLATA. 8 to 10 pm with Fabio Garcia. The highway carnage continues
with bad car wrecks and motorcycle deaths almost daily. The 6/19 broadcast was dominated by numerous
wrecks and people arriving and leaving the hospital mostly with serious injuries. See photos below. And
a 36 year old American man collapsed and died from a heart attack walking down Calle Pedro Clisante in
Sosua. Paramedics arrived and could not revive him. We have no identity. This happened across the
street from Sinatras Restaurant. He looked very fit. We are looking for more details. The EMTs just
loaded the body into an ambulance and off they went. He was with his amigos and no CPR ? Hmmm.
Never a dull moment in Sosua Beach. But if you cannot view the news broadcast you can look up
DetrasDelRumor.com.do on Google Images. This is quite an eye opener. What really goes on in the DR.
A Huge Congrads to Puerto Plata for another Amphitheater Extravaganza. A massive sellout crowd and a
solid line up and some rain, but everyone had a great time. Yiyo Serante was the most popular act. Great
Salsa and the crowd sang every word to every song. Miriam Cruz was rockin, then came twenty minutes
of rain. We all got soaked and Miriam toughed it out and sang right through. The weather cleared and
was perfect the rest of the night. Solid performances from Eddie Herrera, El Alfa and Krisspy made for
a perfect night. But the highlight of the evening were the Hot, Beautiful Dancers. They danced with
every act and in between. We just went crazy with the cameras. Perfect 10s. Where did they find these
ladies? WOW! AMAZING ! And a big thanks to our amigos and sponsors at Cervesa Presidente, Pepsi,
Ron Barcelo Rum and Red Rock Sodas. And thanks to Juniors Renta Sonida for setting up the great
sound system. You guys are real pros. Lets Party !
DON MIGUELO ROCKS HIGH CARIBBEAN NIGHT CLUB. CONCERT REVIEW 7/15/2017
7/15/2017. Don Miguelo and his amazing band invaded the New High Caribbean Nightclub Saturday
night. We also saw him at Beach Fest in April. His music is a combination of Hip Hop and Rock and the
crowds just go crazy. Everyone is off their feet jumping all over the venues. Saturdays show was an
hour long set that started at 3:20 am. Thats right 3:20 and went till 4:30. Long for hip hop show. There
were three opening acts and we have no idea who they were. His band played for about ten minutes
before he took stage. Then he took control and played a hit filled set, backed by an eight piece band.
We walked out of the club at 4:30. Also the dance floor was turned into a VIP section so we couldnt get
as close as we would have liked. The concert drew a crowd of about 200? Not many for a hot act like
this. Just shows how slow Sosua is these days. And who wrote the check? Admission was 500 pesos or
about $12us. Someone wrote a huge check to support this. When will Don play the new PP
Amphitheater? Dont know but we cant wait to see him in front of 6000 fans. That is 6,000 people going
crazy. Don you just Killed. You Nailed it. Sorry we missed El Alfa at the Latin Club on Sunday.
A PROBLEM AT THE HOTEL BELLAMAR IN SOSUA 7/10/2017
Well Readers, We have been spending some time on the TakeMeBackToSosua.com message boards.
And what a problem. This hotel is the old Sosua Bay Resort. The problem is they are co mingling the
regular tourists with our single guy party crowd. This just does not work! And the management is
putting more and more restrictions on when a guy can bring his date to the hotel. To bring in a guest it
has to be after 9pm and she has to be out by 7am. This just is not going to work. Just irritating the best
clients,us, and the complaints are rampant. This is at least the third operator that has tried to run this
hotel in the past three or four years. The building is old and will take a few million $$$ to get the place up
to date. The last company had a separate entrance for the singe guys on the walkway to the beach. And
private rooms as well. This worked and will work again if these rooms are remodeled. Or they can have a
private entrance into the Victorian House Hotel next door. But from what we hear business is slow. And
the food and current rooms not up to par. But this co mingling just is not going to work. Also the $100
per night room rates make it the most expensive hotel in town. Not all inclusive. But the pool is the best
in town and so is the view. Please see photo to the left. The management can easily fix this. Come on!
AND WE CHANNEL SURFED ONTO AN HGTV SOSUA HOME SEARCH 7/10/2017
As we were doing some updates we stumbled onto a Sosua RE agent showing a middle aged couple
from the States, houses and condos. And what we got was a good case of sticker shock. The first
property was a Residential Hispaniola condo priced at $400,000 US. Ocean front and new and nice. Also
mentioned was the SIZZLING SOSUA NIGHTLIFE. This program was maybe few years old. Second was a
$400,000 house in Playa Laguna. Beach front and nice but surrounded by condos. Zero privacy at this
place. Property three was a $320,000 condo in Ecuentro Beach, which is a little surfing village between
Sosua and Cabarete. Say what? $330k? Maybe worth $150,000 tops. Come on. Then onto Cabarete and
Cabarete East Condos and a condo just lowered to $265,000? Huh? In this development? No way are
these condos worth anywhere near that price. No way. Much newer and nicer condos for less money in
Cabarete. The couple offered $375,000 for the Hispaniola condo and settled for $409,000 with an extra
bedroom. They also took a trip to 27 Waterfalls Park. They were wearing life vests and helmets. We
dont think this is necessary. They were also complaining about the long hike through the forest. Please.

MORE SOSUA NEWS, HOTEL CASA CAYENA CLOSED. 7/20/2017 UPDATES
The biggest fight of all time is on 8/26. Now these kind of events
would normally fill Sosua hotel rooms, bars and restaurants to
capacity or damn close. Will this fight do the same? Well most of the
bars including Sosua Lights, which is the old City Lights and Bourbon
Street Restaurant will be the biggest venues. No Rumba bar will hurt
but Sosua Nights has a huge back area that can hold at least 300
fans. So get on a plane. This should be a great party weekend. And
have you seen the press conferences? Insane. Please have a look.
Well we arrived in Sosua Beach at 10pm 7/15 and the good news is the party is still going but slow for
a Saturday night. Marengue Bar was busy. Lots of street action. But with Rumba Bar and D Latin closed
the party zone looks horrid. But the good news is the party is still alive. But we could not get into
Sosua Lights Night Cub, formally City Lights, Problems? We dont know but no one was getting in at
10pm? Hmmm. We hope everything is ok. The new Chaka Bar, opened Saturday night and had a good
crowd. All seems well for now anyways. It is run by Ad who just left High Caribbean to reopen. He ran it
two years ago. We wish him well with all his efforts. Wilfred closed Hotel Casa Cayena. We were not
surprised. Business is down and the landlord would not redo the lease. Now there is no revenue anf
lots of jobs lost. Just shows you how tough the economy is in Sosua these days. With our single guy
party crowd down, Sosua is in dyer shape. But lets not forget we are now a family resort. the problem is
there are zero families in Sosua. What few there are stay at Casa Marina Resort. Thats it. The old D
Latin Drink Nightclub will be turned into a food court. Say What? Yes several restaurant are slated to
move in. At least thats the game plan. Come on, Sosua has too many restaurants. . Best of luck here.
They may draw a crowd if they offer 99 cent steak and lobster. It will never match the D Latin business.
Not even close. We are seeing record numbers of businesses closing very soon. Sosua needs help
asap. And PS has Mayor Llana Nuemann arrived back into the country yet? We have not heard a thing.
THE BIG FIGHT IS COMING 8/26/2017. TIME TO COME PARTY IN SOSUA?
WE ARE STILL WAITING
FOR OUR FRIENDS AT
TO ANNOUNCE THE
LINEUPS FOR THE
VERANO 2017 CONCERT
SERIES. POR FAVOR?
