Coast of the Dominican Republic. It is located between
Cabarete, ten miles to the East and Puerto Plata, thirty
miles 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

town. Never a dull moment in Sosua Beach

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.

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 6,000 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.

DON MIGUELO ROCKS THE PUERTO PLATA AMPHITHEATER. CONCERT REVIEW 7/292017
The Puerto Plata Amphitheater did it again Saturday night with another great concert. But some
disappointments. Opening the night was veteran Marengue artist Yovanny Polanco with a solid thirty
minute set. The crowd just loves this guy and were dancing in the isles. The next act was again
Marengue vet Rubby Perez. Now a thirty to fortyfive minute set is about right for a multiple band
format in this venue. But Rubby played on and on. 90 minutes? Just too long and the volume was
amped to the pain level. Now we are ACDC concert vets but Rubbys voice was so loud it was shattering
eye glasses. We have seen Rubby several times in the past but never this long a set. But the
audience seemed to enjoy it . Next was Bachatas Joe Veres. This was a disappointment. He went
though a number of his hits, but left out his best. Chuquita Mia. This is one of the best bachata songs
ever written and he skipped it. This song and Dom Miguelo were the reasons we showed up. But last
on stage was Don himself and as usual brought the crowd to life. We have seen him three times
since April and never disappoints. His rockin ten piece band is the best. Also,no dancing girls? Hmm.
But the concert was Free. Yes Free. All in all it was anther great night in PP.
11/3/2017 SOSUA NEWS. BIG WEEKEND PARTY CROWDS IN SOSUA AND MORE
8/4/2017. The transformation of Sosua Beach from a
bachelor party haven to a family resort has been a
rocky one. The two pics to the left are the La Roca
restaurant. The top photo is La Roca in its prime and
the bottom pic is La Roca now. To the right is the Strip
rockin and crowded with business and the bottom
photo is the strip today. Main Beach is not the only
part of Sosua under assault these days. But where
are the families? Seven years into this experiment
and you rarely see a family walking around Sosua.
What happened? This is progress right? Shocking.
SOSUA BEACH JUST A FEW YEARS AGO AND NOW. TAKE A LOOK
We were on the DetrasDelRumor.com.do website and found more bad news that focus
on the need for a Public Hospital in Sosua. On 8/7, there were two wrecks in Gaspar
Hernandez, which is thirty minutes east of Sosua. Two men on a motorcycle collided
with a truck and were killed instantly. Also in GH, two persons aged 19 and 15 lost
control of there vehicle were in critical condition. They were taken to Ricardo Limardo
Hospital in Puerto Plata, an hour away. The article described them as in delicate
condition. Let see an hour long trip? They were on an ambulance. Most crash victims
are thrown into the back of a pickup truck with no medical care. Five more were injured
on the main highway between Puerto Plata and Santiago, when a car and truck collided.
It is unclear where they were taken for treatment. Hopefully, Santiago where there are
several major med centers. The Ricardo Limardo Hospital is old, small and underfunded.
Yet it is the only public hospital for around 300.000 people living on the North Coast.
Sosua Mayor Llana Nuemann should be focused on a new hospital, not jogging tracks
and bulldozing Sosuua Main Beach. See articles below. Dont you all agree?
AND YET ANOTHER CHARITY OPERATING IN SUNNY SOSUA BEACH 10/5/2017
Yet another Chartiy setting up shop in Sosua. This one is called Quisqueya Aprende Contigo. This is help
illiterate residents learn to read. It is just a fact, the DR has a very high literacy rate. The public schools do a
great job of teaching Reading, Writing and Math. In fact in eleven years here we have not met one illiterate
Dominican that we can think of. And the school system already runs these types of programs to get people
caught up to speed. The Sosua area attracts dozens of charities. Why? Because there are girls, beaches and
cold beer and the workers get fat salaries to enjoy all the spoils. . Why else? You can bet the owners are not
flying coach. Wanna Bet? We will bet most of these are making someone rich. We never hear of any
charities going into bad or dangerous areas. Just pretty beach towns. Reference. SOSUANEWS.COM
IRMA GIVES PUERTO PLATA, SOSUA AND THE NORTH COAST A NASTY SLAP 9/82017
Well Readers, It could have been a whole lot worse. If you were following the storm tracks it had the eye
directly over the DR North Coast. Then it shifted fifty or so miles North. So we got hit and it was a wild four
hours but limited damage and few reports of deaths or injuries. None that we saw. The houses here are
mostly concrete blocks and roofs are concrete slab. But many of the corrugated steel roofs broke loose and
were badly damaged. See the pics on the bottom show. That piece of roofing blew off and adjacent roof and
crashed onto the house next door, which also lost part of its roof. All in all not too bad. Downtown Sosua
was almost untouched. We have much more to come so stay tuned. looks like Miami is next victim. but is
sure was calm until about 12 noon, then things got really loud and crazy. Without that shift we could have
been St. Martin. OH YAH THERE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A CONCERT TONIGHT 9/9 ?? SORRY NO MUSIC.
PICS ABOVE ARE SOSUA MAIN BEACH. THE PIC ON THE FAR LEFT AND FAR RIGHT SHOWS ABOUT 3 TO 4 FEET OF EROSION
IT WAS A WILD SCENE IN PUERTO PLATA. FOUR HOUR PLUS OF ALL OUT FURY AND A CAT ON THE RIGHT WAS COOL AND CALM

9/17/2017 SOSUA BEACH NEWS. EVEN THE LOCAL ART GALLERIES ARE GOING BROKE.
A thanks to our buddy at SosuaNews.com for reviving this story. We have reported on this a year ago. Our
single guy party crowd is also the biggest buyer of art from the local galleries. Say what? Yes, guys come out
here for four or five days and hire the local artists to paint a mural. Ever since our numbers went down so
has their business. Blame it on low season? NO! We would come year round in big numbers, filling
restaurants, hotels and bars. Our numbers are down and the Sosua economy is on life support and has been
for years now. We would buffer the low season making for a healthy year round economy. The seven year
plan to turn Sosua Beach into a family resort is a complete failure. With the bar closings the unemployment
rate has skyrocketed. Also, the hotels are near empty and villa and condo rentals are way down. Bourbon St.
Restaurant has re opened. Lets see a local has a job one day and the next day no job. Unless the bars and
night club business get back to normal there is little hope for the local economy. Sosua had changed alright.
100% for the worse. Families continue to flock to the all inclusives and always will. The Puerto Plata AIs are
sold out. And the beach has hurricane damage. So the Sunday beach crowds will be down for a while. Stick a
fork in it. No nightlife in Sosua and there is no more Sosua. We predicted this and have been 100% correct.
This is just not working. Its time to bring back the Party and help the suffering artists. As always Stay Tuned.
9/29/2017 SOSUA NEWS. INTRODUCING DOGS AND CATS OF THE D.R. CHARITY.
We would like to introduce a great local charity. Dogs and Cats Of The Dominican
Republic. We have written many articles about our best buddy Rob Hoffman who died
of cancer in 2015. This charity flew Robs favorite dog to his home in Orlando to be
with him for his final weeks. All free of charge. We didnt know which charity did this.
But we had the good luck of running into two ladies who run this org. wearing the
charity T shirts. We have looking for them for a long time. They do great work. Trust us
you do not want to be a stray dog or cat in the Dominican Republic. Everyday is a living hell. We take care
and feed of a number of these on a daily basis out of our pockets. If not for us more of these animals would
die. Females get pregnant and there is no safe place to give birth. The males tear each other up in fights.
They eat trash, scraps of food from the food stands and drink contaminated water. They often drink poison
and die on the street. As well as massive abuse from humans. This charity is building a new dog and cat
retreat in the town of Luperon on some donated land. They will be needing lots of help in the coming
weeks. This Saturday 9/30 they will be breaking ground and building fencing and structures. Volunteers are
needed. Please check out their Facebook page. The DR is a great place to adopt a dog or cat. We support
this charity and the Mustard Seeds which is an orphanage for handicapped children. Donations badly needed
FESTIVAL PRESIDENTE 2017. AWESOME MAGICAL NIGHTS AND A LITTLE PAIN TOO
BASEBALL IS BACK. LETS PLAY BALL!
BASEBALL, PRESIDENTE BEER AND PRETTY LADIES
SOSUA BEACH IS SLOW AND VERY
BORING THESE DAYS. WE ARE
LOOKNG EVERYWHERE FOR A PARTY
Sosua News 11/3/2017. First off a big thanks to Kahuna Bar in Cabarete for putting on a
great Halloween party. Owner Sabastian always seems to pull it off. When in Cabarete stop
by for a drinks and great cuisine right on the beach. Also a thanks to Classico Disco in
Sosua for another great party. And a huge weekend party crowd Sosua. Sosua dead? No
way. And its good to see the Sosua hotels and restaurants get some extra business. Badly
needed these days. Week day traffic is slow. Remember the days when there were huge
crowds seven days per week? But its great to see big crowds at Classico and Sosua Light.
The new sidewalks are completed so we are not walking around in mud and dirt. This was a
complete mess for weeks. The weather is mostly hot and dry and Sosua Main Beach is back
in business. So great news. The party is alive and well in Sosua. So get on a plane. Or
better yet get a passport? A bad day in Sosua is better than the best day back home.
SOSUA NEWS 11/20/2017. SO WHATS GOING ON IN SOSUA? IT IS VERY SLOW HERE
JUST SOME UPDATES FOR 11/20/2017. With high season coming in late December, Sosua Main Beach is not
looking good as we already mentioned. The rocks exposed by the two hurricanes are covered up with
sand. Thats good news but high tides have shrunk the beach by at least one third. We saw tides washing up
into the beach seating areas and in most areas running underneath beach chairs. So picture your sittiing in a
beach chair having a cervesa and water is running underneath. This was at 2pm and was getting worse.
What will come of this we just dont know. Walking through town does not look too good either. Morua Mai
restaurant looks to be closed for good. Just too dependent on the NY single guy crowd to support it.
Numbers down and doors shut. A vape shop has opened. Actually not a bad idea. Vaping is hot right now He
is in kind of bad location but this could work. The authorities have seemed to shut down vaping in Cabarete.
Why? We assume people were enjoying themselves and the Fun Police stepped in and said NO MAS.
Cabarete draws a young party crowd. Best not to piss them off. The DLatin Drink site remains an eyesore
with progress moving at a snails pace. Open in six months? Good luck. So far just a money pit for the
owners. A large number of trucks moved tones of rubble out of the space. What a waste. Marengue
Bar/Classico Disco and Sosua Light Nightclubs pack em in on weekends. Big weekend party crowds in
Sosua. Yes Readers, after years of efforts to kill it the party lives. Nothing will slow down Sosua. The party
will live on as long as there is a Sosua Beach. We do expect Main Beach to rebuild a bit. STAY TUNED.
WE ARE BUILDING A NEW
MUSIC PAGE. STAY TUNED
