THINKING OF STARTING A BUSINESS IN SOSUA OR CABARETE?
REMEMBER THESE DAYS IN SOSUA ?
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS. IF YOU LIKE DOGS AND CATS
Readers, This morning we were walking down the street and heard what sounded like a kitten in distress.
We heard the squeals but could not find where they were coming from. Then we saw some movement from a
trash bag sitting on the curb. We ripped the bag open and pulled a newborn kitten from the trash. Just born
and its eyes were not even open. Unbelievable. And what do we do now? Well, by some miracle the
mother cat emerged. recognized it and carried it back into a crevice. so fast we could not get off a picture.
Here are the shots we took. You have to live here to see stuff like this. The plight of dogs and cats here in
the DR is dire. Oh, what you dont see during your five days at the all inclusive resort. Can you believe
someone just threw this cat into the garbage, like it was a piece of trash. Whoever did this is trash or basura!
NO ONE HAS SUPPORTED SOSUA LIKE BOBBY FROM RUMBA BAR
AND A SHOUT OUT TO BOBBY FROM RUMBA BAR!
And no one spends money in Sosua and the whole
island for that matter like our army of single guys who
come here and spend like theres no manana. Bobby,
owner of Rumba , who was deported about a year ago
now, has been the biggest supporter of Mustard
Seeds. This great charity supports mentally and
physically disabled children in the area. Bobby also
financed a new sports field for area kids. AND WE
ARE PROUD TO SAY OUR MONEY AND TAX DOLLARS
HELPED FINANCED THESE PROJECTS. These pathetic
Christian Missionary Groups come here and do
nothing but recruit and take money from poor
people. These groups do nothing for Sosua or the DR
We used to have real concerts on
the main beach in Sosua. These
pics go back about five years
now. Please bring back the good
old days. These were fun times
here. Sosua these days is just
plain boring. We havent had a
good bikini contest in how many
years now years now! Zzzzzzzz.
We are going back to bed
AND WHERE ARE THE BIKINI CONTESTS?
And on the subject of droughts, we havent had
a good bikini contest here in a few years.
These are huge fun. We have a great idea.
Lets have a contest and invite Mayor Neuman .
If she shows up she will have one great time.
They have these all over the world., every
weekend. No harm done. Just Fun! The beer
is on us. No harm in a little fun.
OUR FREE SOSUA, PUERTO PLATA, CABARETE AND D.R. SAFETY TIPS
OK Readers, Here are some tips to keep you safe in the DR. First off as mentioned above last week a
76 yr old man and his wife were walking on a street in Puerto Plata, not too far from Central Park. He
was gunned down and robbed. This was 10 am, Fortunately, security cams identified the killers. Police
tracked down one of them, a 22 yr old Dominican man, then shot and killed him. There were two. The
other one is stiil on the loose. Congrads to the Policia National for some great work.
First off, LEAVE THE ROLEX AT HOME AND BRING THE TIMEX ! No one cares about your bling here.
One guy in particular that comes to Sosua must have 2 lbs of gold chains around his neck and a
diamond studded watch. This guy is crazy. Just asking to get robbed. Good thing there are lots of
people and cops in the Sosua Party Zone. No body cares about your bling here except thieves.
Nobody in impressed. And carry only small amounts of cash. 1000 pesos is about $22 US. Thats alot of
beer and Hennesy. Put the rest in your lock box. You can always go back for more. Do not let your
wallet dangle out of your back pocket. We see this stupidity all the time. And the iPhones. These are
also hanging out of too many pockets. These are probably the most stolen item. Can we suggest a
holster? They are about $10 on Ebay. When in your hotel room. Lock up everything of value. Dont
take anything for granted. When using the ATM, do this during the day, not at night. Do not flash
cash. When a tourist goes to the ATM, trust us, somebody is watching you. Make it quick. Last year
another German, who carried large amounts of cash was gunned down and robbed in the La Sirena
parking lot in Puerto Plata. Someone probably tipped these guys off that this guy was carrying large
amounts of cash. They then followed him to this location. This was 2pm in the afternoon. la Sirena is
similar to a Target or Walmart.
If you are renting here, better stick with a condo or apartment. Only rent a villa in a guarded gated
community. Do not isolate yourselves in an unguarded stand alone place. A friend of ours and a long
time resident of Sosua was robbed recently. He rents a house up a dark road outside of Sosua. He
was in town and his daughter at school, when five armed robbers broke in. Pistol whipped his wife
and stole laptops, cash, cameras and a flat screen. Stay in a guarded development. Especially if
your a couple. There are a thousand condos , apartments and hotel rooms available. Much Much
safer. Out in the countryside you are a sitting duck.
These tips are good wherever you travel. If you are in the DR and staying in an All Inclusive resort
you have little to worry about. And if you are on a cruise ship. The high traffic areas are loaded
with cops. Central Park in Puerto Plata is very safe. As are the high traffic areas of Sosua and
Cabarete. Just do not isolate yourself day or night in a low traffic area. Oh and yes the US has one
of the highest crime rated in the world if not the highest. This is not just a DR problem. Abide by
these tips and you will have a much safer trip. But nothing is guaranteed. Just be aware at all
times. This is a great spot to visit and . Oh, and stay sober too. Dont get loaded.

SOSUA BEACH, CABARETE, PUERTO PLATA
SURF LIQUORS SOSUA
MORE BUSINESS BLUNDERS AND COMMENT ON A RECENT EMAIL
We just received an email from a gentleman who sold his hotel in Colorado and is thinking of moving
to Sosua Beach or Cabarete, finding a fixer upper hotel and going into business here. Well, the
problem, is there are no bargains. There must be at least one hundred builders and developers in
the area. If a property was worth the investment it has been picked over by every one of them. The
low hanging fruit was been snatched up long ago. The few that are left are just too far gone to fix up.
The repairs are just too expensive. We told him to rethink this idea. Or buy a hotel that is turnkey
and ready to go. We have been writing about another businessman who opened up a Mexican
restaurant on Sosua Beach. He flew in a chef from Mexico and was really going to make it big here.
Well, two months later, he had to shut his doors. We predicted he would bite the dust, but we gave
him at least six months. The site is now being turned into a pizza joint. There is just no market here
for Mexican food. He is the third such place to close here in Sosua. Now Gortidos Fresh Mex in
Cabarete is a huge hit. A giant success. Its a mystery why Sosua shuns Mexican food. We love it. And
these places were very good. Dominicans dont like it. So success depends on Gringo traffic. We will
see if a pizza place makes it. This is a tough market. About 10% of the start ups make it here.
BEACH FEST CABARETE WAS A HUGE HIT, BIG CROWD IN SOSUA BEACH
And the wild and crazy political rallys just
are happening more and more and get
nuttier all the time. We need to get Willie
elected Mayor and get Sosua Beach back
on track. The economy is on life support.
We need a business man in charge, not a
bunch of polititions Kind of like the US,
right? Willie is the best choice for jobs.
and bringing back the party. Go Willie !
Just a massive crowd for Beach Fest 2016 in
Cabarete. Two large sound stages with all the
latest equipment on hand. Beer, Rum, Sun, Music,
Hot Dominican Ladies and a good time was had by
all. Only one fight broke out on the street. But with
a crowd this size it was very orderly. And Sosua
Beach also drew its usual huge Semana Saturday
crowd. Once again a great time was had by all.
Two great parties in Puerto Plata. Sorry we couldnt
make these. Parties all over the Dominican
Republic. We need to clone ourselves to make all
of the great Fiestas going on here in the Sunny DR
A TRULY HEART WARMING STORY OF SOSUA LOVE AND MARRIAGE
We have a great buddy here in Sosua. He is a retired fire fighter from the States and just an up guy all
the way. Just the perfect situation for a single guy. For you who dont know. Police and Fire fighters
can begin their careers at 21 or 22. After 20 years they get an immediate pension if they retire. Not bad
for a guy in his early or mid 40s. Well, a few years ago out friend decided to buy a house, a car and
really settle into Sosua. We were thinking, are you sure you want to do this? You should be traveling
the world. OK, so he partied for a few years then met Ms perfect. A very pretty Dominican girl. And
decided to get married. Huh? Yes he took the plunge. His wife and her two kids moved into the house.
Well, she immediately got really lazy, spending the whole day eating and watching Latin soap operas on
TV Novelis. Soap operas are just sickening to begin with but the ones here are just excruciating. The
actors are either making love or beating each other up. So our friend will go to the store, buy over
$100 worth of groceries. The wife and her kids just attack the food. They rip open the packages and will
devour it all in two days. She rolls up monster cell phone bills and burns up his entire pension check
and then some each month. He is now scrounging around looking for a job just to cover all this. He will
hand her the car keys just to get rid of her for a few hours. You just cannot believe how miserable he
is. He is going back to the states for ten days this month just to get away from the situation. And
speaking of miserable, we are getting indigestion and a migraine just writing this.
SOSUA STORIES. CAREFREE APARTMENT LIVING IN PARADISE?
Oh how could we ever forget this one. Several years ago we had a a decent apartment in probably
the best party complex in Sosua. It was party central. Just too much fun, right? Well, one day the
entire place ran out of water. Nothing, no showers, no nothing. What happened? It turned out the
landlord was stealing Sosua city water, So they promptly shut off the water. This went on for a few
days. Of course we were bitching and complaining and stinking. As you can imagine in the tropical
heat. So he decided to bring in a truck load of water. And it had been raining heavily and the trail in
was badly flooded. So they sent the truck through a side gate and over the lawn. And you guessed
it. The truck got stuck in the mud. And the only way to get it out of the muck was to lighten up the
load and empty the entire tankof fresh water. Have mercy, still no water. We got the problem
solved eventually. Its funny now to look back on this but at the time it sure was aggravating. Oh yes,
care free Caribbean living. Many more Sosua stories coming. After ten years here we have a bunch.
SO WHAT IS GOING ON IN SOSUA THESE DAYS? NEW FALL UPDATES
PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR ALL THE SOSUA, CABARETE AND PUERTO PLATA NEWS
IT WAS A WILD AND CRAZY POLITICAL SEASON. SURE IS QUIET AROUND HERE
THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC IS NOT A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY !
First off The Dominican Republic is a 2nd world developing Country. Not a 3rd world country as we
hear often. Also, there is a tremendous amount of wealth here. The Ex Pats talk about this all the
time. The cars on the highways are just as nice as the US, Canada and Europe. OK maybe a few more
clunkers, but lots of shiney new cars and iPhones too. Everyone feels sorry for the poor Dominicans.
But please do not. Opportunities are here for those who want to get off their lazy rear ends. In
Puerto Plata alone there are three universities, including a technical university students can learn
dozens of trades. There are no fewer than six foreign language institutes And of course you can go
to work and pick up trades on the street and start small businesses of all kinds.
OK Readers, Lets clear some confusion. The Dominican Republic is a Second World Developing
Country. It is not a Third World Country. Far from it. There is a growing economy and opportunity
abounds for those with a little ambition. I said for those with ambition. Puerto Plata alone has three
universities, including a technical university where dozens of skills are taught. And at least six foreign
language institutes. All cost very little money or free if you cant afford tuition. Or many skills and trades
can be learned right on the street. Learning to build or be a mechanic. And there is a boom in small
business. Lots of young guys starting various businesses and making a solid living. Unfortunately,
these are the minority. Too many here would rather street hustle, deal weed and steal anything not
bolted to the ground. We know two guys who speak German, Spanish and English. But they would
rather sell bags of weed and fake Cuban cigars to tourists and steal everything they can get their
hands on. Just too lazy to get a real job. We are always giving these two pocket change so they can buy
a bowl of spaghetti or a few cigs. One wants to be a rapper. He is about thirty with two babies. But he
is convinced he is going to make it big in the music biz. Come on. The bottom line here is dont feel
sorry for Dominicans. If they want to get ahead they can. We do not have one bit of pity except for
maybe someone too old or handicapped. Lots of lazy knuckleheads here. Watch your property!
THE REPUBLICA DOMINICANA IS NOT A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY !
LOTS OF MOTOCROSS IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Think you got skills? Nearby Imbert has a great motocross track and quite a few races.
You can come out here, rent a bike and gear and give it your best shot. We went to a
recent race. We were covered with dirt head to toe. And left a bath tub ring that would
shock our mothers. But it was a great time. We will go to more in the future.
NEWS AND ENTERTAINMENT ATETES
FINALLY SOME REAL TALK ON PROSTITUTION IN SOSUA AND THE DR
First off the worlds oldest profession has been here in Sosua and the Dominican Republic since probably
people twenty. The vast majority of this business are between Dominicans, not tourists. Tourists make up
a timy fraction. Maybe 5% at most. Very few. Prostitution has been in Sosua since the mid 1980s and the
town has flourished. Luxury developments such as Sea Horse Ranch, Casa Linda and the Residential
Hispanola developments have all been built with the party going on in the middle of town. Most Bars,
Hotels, Restaurants and all supporting businesses have come to rely on this huge cash flow coming into
the area. As a matter of fact the largest and most successful restaurant is 80% single male travelers.
Nothing has changed over the past 30 years. Just more luxury housing and condos. But in 1996
authorities decided to shut down the bars and discos. The result was economic collapse. There were
five planes per day coming in from Germany to POP. That immediately dropped to one per day. That is 35
flights to 7 or less. The flights never did come back to normal. This was in the days before cell phones and
internet. Sosua was one giant street party open 24 hours. . Sorry we missed it. But nothing but empty
businesses and mass unemployment resulted. . There was little choice but to bring it all back. And the
party started back up and got pretty much back to normal with other tourists filling the gap. Now in 2016
Sosua is once again shutting down. The latest bar to shutter is Rumba. The result is once again empty
businesses, pissed off business owners and no one on the streets. The only major bar currently open is
Classico Disco. That will not keep the party alive. Girls are getting arrested. Its just a mess. Pedro
Clisante in once again being closed off from 6pm to 6am. This failed once so why do it again? Businesses
are closing. Unemployent is rising and so is the crime rate. How long this will go on? Its anybodies
guess. And the bars are closing 12 midnight and 2am on weekends. They say this is to make it safer for
families and seniors. Say what? There are no families and few seniors. Arent they home in bed by 9pm?
Families have never shown up here after a six year effort. They go to the all inclusives and are crazy not
to. No way can the the small hotels in Sosua compete with these. The Ais have cheap packages that
include everything. Cheap flights, meals, entertainment and internet all in one. Remember kids want
Facebook these days. The result is a very dead Sosua. It is the slowest we have seen it in ten years.
And we spotted an article on the health care crisis on the
North Coast. It mentions the over crowding at Ricardo
Limardo Hospital in Puerto Plata, the regions only public
hospital. There is a lack of beds forcing patients into the
hallways and little or no medicine. The emergency room is at
over capacity. We have been bitching about a public hospital
in Sosua for a year now and no progress. We found this article
in DETRASDELRUMOR.COM.DO. Stay tuned for more news

bars and nightlife.
A COMMENT ON THE ADSS OR THE ASSOCIATION OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OF SOSUA. This is a
group of Sosua businessmen that are anti prostitution. Their title says they are for sustainable
development ? Sosua is a tourist town. It is a bar, restaurant and hotel town which lives off the single
guys and girls that come here. There is already sustainable development. Sosua is built out. There is not
much room left to develop in the city limits. Just a few vacant lots. Sosua and Cabarete have both
thrived with prostitution in the middle of both towns. What have they developed? If they sent us some
photos of their construction projects we will gladly post them here. They have to go out of town for more
development. One of their members is a prominent real estate broker, who claims he just cannot make
a living here. Yet he drives around in an $80.000 Mercedes and lives in a multi million dollar mansion in
Sea Horse Ranch. He should stop his bitching. Prostitution has been here on a large scale for 30 yrs.
This guy has made $millions in spite of it as have numerous other developers. Just be happy your rich.
UPDATE ON THE NEW MUSIC THEATER IN PUERTO PLATA .., MUSIC POR FAVOR

PASSIONS SOSUA UPDATE
We had the unfortunate experience of popping our heads
into the once great and hugely profitable Passions
Nightclub in Sosua. it looked like a haunted house.
Cobwebs, piles of junk everywhere, a bar completely torn
out. It just looked horrid. A real mess. Opening ever
again? We dont think so. But the Party lives. Stay tuned
On vacation? Try
This was a Sosua BBQ
for good. Just think a

never saw one. Just
empty seats every

AS ONE OF OUR FRIENDS SAID. YOU JUST HAVE TO ROLL WITH THE PARTY IN SOSUA
Look no one with an ounce of sense can figure out Sosua these days. Shut down Rumba Bar and
everyone moves across the street to the new Bourbon Street Restaurant. Then to Classico Disco
later on. And now the City Lights complex has reopened and is rockin. This place has a bar in the
front, a fantastic disco and a huge area in back big enough for concerts. And some great Super
Bowl Parties in the past. Its back open and packing in a huge party crowd. But the bars now close
early so where to go? Is the old After One Disco open ? Dont think so. So there is always the Playa
Chiquita Casino. Ten years ago the bars closed at 12 and 1am on weekends. We all went to Playa
Chiquita. No shutting down early here. The casinos can stay open all night. There was a sea of
motoconchos bringing a huge crown to this place. And it was the best time ever in Sosua. Great
disco and the casino was packed with players and girls playing table games. It was a good time and
needs to reopen asap. We will be there. You get there at 1am and leave at 6am. It is obvious the
city is not serious about stopping the party, so just go with the flow and Long Live The Party!
RECORD CONDOM USE AT RIO 2016 OLYMPICS ...MAYBE ITS TIME TO
Dust off the track shoes and work on the breast stoke. A record 420,000 condoms will be issued
at the Olympic Village in Rio. There are 10,000 athletes staying there so thats a staggering 42 per
athlete. This includes 100,000 female condoms. Blaaah, those are aweful. Cellophane just Blahh!
It just sounds like too much fun. In London 2012 officials had to order an additional 130,000
condoms just to meet demand. The fine folks at Durex made the donation. This must be the
wildest place on the planet Earth for two week duration. It sounds like there are two Olympics
going on. Maybe it would be a good idea to add another sport to the games. Also record lines
at the McDonalds in the village food court. Half hour or more lines in the rain and all just for a
tasty Big Mac or two. No other restaurants worth eating at? This food could slow an athlete
down. Or maybe its the food of champions. After all you get all the major food groups Fat, sugar,
cholesterol and caffeine. Enough to really rev up your engine. But the sex. Sex Sex and more
Sex. But those female condoms? Dont they look like the bags your mother packed your lunch
in? A girl pulls one of those out its time to escort her out the door. Blaah! But how do these
athletes get any sleep? There must be DO NOT DISTURB SIGNS on just about every door
On Wed. August 31 there was a large protest rally on Pedro Clisante and in front of the police station..
And Its about time. Present were members of the various labor and vendor associations and taxi and
transport organizations that have been impacted by the bar and restaurants in slow down in Sosua. The
bars are required to close at 12pm during the week and 2am on weekends. And the senseless closing of
Rumba Bar and others who have had stellar track records with few if any problems. The result has been
up to 200 more job losses and dozens of businesses on the brink of going bankrupt. We cannot think of a
business in Sosua that has not felt the impact of the present slowdown. The largest and best known
restaurant in town gets 80% of its business from the single male tourists has been hit hard as have all of
the hotels. salons and other support businesses. The small street vendors have been especially hard
hit. No reason for this. Its no wonder the crime rate has skyrocketed. The families are just not coming.
And in any event they would not be out late at night. Sosua is am unabashed party town. This messing
with the chemistry here has proven a disaster. Its Time to open the town up and with it the Party.
There was a recent article by one of out Sosua news counterparts that the new multi million dollar,
5,000 seat Puerto Plata Amphitheater was in a sad state of disrepair. Nonsense. It has become more of
a park area, where the locals visit, walk around just chill out. The venue was completed after 2.5 years
of construction and a grand opening in July has yet to host a music act. Not one. Why is anybodies
guess. It is being used also as a workout area and is a great place to run bleachers. We go down there
just to get a workout. The stage is being used for aerobics classes. So its not a total loss. But where is
the music? Looks fine to us. But we are not experts at figuring out how things work here. There would
have to be some type of barriers put up around the perimeter to keep the freeloaders from seeing a
free concert. If not why pay when you can sit up on the hills and get it for free? Just a few observations.
PRESIDENTE VERANO 2016...COLD BEER, GREAT MUSIC AND BOOTYS SHAKIN
Just another amazing Presidente Verano Concert Season.
About twelve or so shows throughout the country. We
attended Santiago and Puerto Plata and had just a fantastic
time. Mostly hip hop with a little Bachata and Salsa thrown in.
but it was definately a young hip hop crowd and were really
pumped to hear their favorite singers which included Mark B,
Mozart La Para, Gabriel, El Mayor Clasico. And Salsa stars
Alex Matos, Yiyo Serante and many more. But the hip hop
guys are really popular. These guys are all over MTV and the
Latin Music Channels. And of course Cold Presidente
Cervesa, pretty ladies and great booty shaking contests.
Just a great time and many more pics to come. And a huge
thanks to Presidente Beer and 911 Energy Drink for all the
great production and all the hard work and investment. Its
not cheap or easy pulling this off and making it better every
year. And of course the huge crowds. Bigger every year !
WE ARE POLITICALLY INCORRECT AND PROUD OF IT!
PROUD OF ITT
And to our amazing friends at Presidente Beer. Maybe its time to get involved in the goings on in
Sosua. The beer and rum companies must be losing two truckloads of beer and spirits daily. Have you
checked the books lately? We just got an email from a friend just in Sosua and they were arresting
girls in large numbers again. Even hotel and restaurant workers are being tossed. Reminds us of the
week current Mayor llana Neuman was elected in 2010. There were so many arrests that the hotels and
restaurants had to give their female workers photo ids just to make it to the taxi stand without being
arrested. Looks like we are going back to that. Lets hope not but it may deja vue all over again. Its
time the beer and rum companies get together and flex a lot of muscle.
ON A SERIOUS NOTE TO THE BEER AND RUM COMPANIES
HOW TO END PROSTITUTION IN ONE DAY IN SOSUA
To the Mayor and everyone else proposing an end to prostitution in Sosua Beach. Here is how you do it.
Purchase a hand full of padlocks. Go to the bars you think facilitate this. Shut them down. Clear off the
streets of anyone suspected of being involved. Put in a curfew. Patrol the streets and see to it there is
no more prostitution on the streets. This can be done in one day. Very simple. But we have had six
years of closing down one bar and letting another one open up. Arrest large numbers of girls one week.
then completely back off. Then let everything come back, then start the same procedure all over again.
Then there are all the committees and anti prostitution groups such as the Association For Sustainable
Development Of Sosua. Studies after study on how to turn Sosua into a family resort. The authorities
closed down Sosua in 1996. The result was a nuclear warhead hitting the economy. It just died
overnight. The city promptly let the party return. We talk to many of our veteran friends about this. And
in those days there was no internet, cell phones and little drugs or crime. Sosua was a booming 24 hour
town. Packed and lively. After this shut down a large amount of tourist business was lost permanently.
Well Readers, The unhappy Sosua marriage story we reported on weeks ago has turned into a sloppy
messy divorce. . And an expensive one. This is happening to one of our big hearted party buddies. He
tried to do it right and filed with the government for a legal marriage certificate. He received it at great
time and expense. The marriage was a disaster. See our article below. His wife and her two kids just
turned into money sucking vampires. Draining his pension check and then some every month. And a
sizable pension check at that. As well as most of his savings over the last thirty years. Now after doing
the right thing he has to unravel it all. The attorney bill is running into the thousands of dollars and
mounting. He also survived a life threatening illness before all this. So he should be enjoying a great
retirement, living a care free life and he is going through hell. This whole thing is unnecessary. A very
low % of Dominicans get married. Low single digits. They just move in together. Have a family and so be
it. SO TO ALL YOU EXPATS! Let this be a lesson. In our ten years here we do not know of a single Anglo
Dominican marriage that has worked out. NOT ONE. The cultural differences are just too great. Stay
away from marriage here or be prepared for the same mess as our amigo. More to come. Stay tuned

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.

YET ANOTHER COMMITTEE BEING FORMED TO STUDY UNREST IN SOSUA
NOT ANOTHER ONE! On Sept. 13 there was yet another Sosua City Council meeting protesting the
early bar and restaurant closings and its negative effect on local businesses. A new committee is
being formed to study this. Thanks to our buddy at Sosuanews.com for the update. Another
committee, can you believe it? We are just dizzy from all of this. And all poor little Sosua Beach
wants to do is party. Rumba Bar, now closed, was a great place to watch NFL and College Football.
This was one of the great places to watch the games and have a few Presidente Beers and maybe a
cheeseburger. They had a great satellite system and could find any game or sporting event. . This
place is badly missed and our sympathies to all the locals who lost their jobs here.
PANDEMIC OF MOTORCYCLE CRASHES IN SOSUA AND CABARETE
We have been reading up on the topic of too many motorcycle crashes.
mainly on the highway between Cabarete, Sosua and Puerto Plata.
Recently, between Union and the Curve Of Death going into Sosua there
were twelve accidents in a 24 hr period. Resulting in twelve injuries.
Three nearly fatal. One crashed into a telephone pole and another head
on into a Jeep resulting in near fatal injuries. Many die on these
stretches of highway. Medical attention is a long ways away in Puerto
Plata. And little if any talk of a Hospital in Sosua. Now more than ever
Sosua needs a hospital. And few ambulances. Not a good situation.
SOSUA BAR UPDATES AND NEWS. THE RUMORS NEVER STOP
The Winner Circle bar across from Clasico Disco is getting a remodel and will
be opening sometime in October. There is construction going on right now.
And we spoke to the manager and only employee left at Rumba Bar. He said
Rumba will be reopening in three weeks or sometime in early October. we
asked him why three weeks? He had no answer only that is up to the City of
Sosua. Yah, we will believe it when we are standing in there having a cold
Presidente Beer. Same business model? We think this is a long shot.
SOSUA BEACH. JUST ANOTHER PERFECT SUNDAY IN PARADISE
Just a few more notes and comments we have been picking up from other Sosua websites.
Everyone uses the excuse that its slow because of low season. Baloney! Nonsense! Lets
see, a guy comes here and meets a girl. Now do you really think he gives a damn if its July
or January? Of course not. A little bit of heat? Just turn on the AC or go to the beach jump
in and cool off. The girls we meet here keep us coming back every time we get a few days
off from work. Guys come here five and six times per year and is their only vacation spot.
Try getting that loyalty from families. Uh No. This low season thing just started the last few
years since the bar closings started. Sosua always had a minor low season with little pain.
MORE NONSENSE WE NEED TO CLEAR UP. LOW SEASON?
Readers, Ever notice how Sosua Beach is often referred to as
Booming and as a fun North Coast beach town? All of this boom has
taken place with prostitution right in the middle of town for the past
30 years. Hmm, we know lots of builders and realtors here who
support the party scene here and have become multi millionaires
over this period of time. They have sold every house and condo
they have ever built or listed. Sosua has boomed to the point
where the entire town is built out. Sounds like a nice problem to
us. Oh and who do you think rents these places? Three guesses
Sosua Beach is a beautiful beach town, located on the North
Coast of the Dominican Republic. Sosua is known for its
world class beach, incredible nightlife, perfect weather and
just a great place to cut loose and party. We cover current
Sosua news, entertainment and events. And all the
controversy this little town generates. We always have the
latest news and opinions. We also cover Cabarete and
Puerta Plata news and activities as well. Read and stay tuned
for all the daily updates. Never a dull moment in tiny Sosua
SO WHAT DO WE REALLY LIKE ABOUT SOSUA AND THE DR?
For one thing it is the awesome Dominican farmer. Everyday
truck loads of fresh produce roll through the towns full of fresh
fruits and vegetables. Year round these guys grow enough
food to feed three Dominican Republics. Every kind of
vegetable we find back home plus bananas, pineapples,
mangos, papayas, melons of every kind, avocate, yuka,
plantenas, All sorts of exotic tropical fruits. Many you never
heard of and of course staples beans, rice and pollo, seafood,
etc. Everyone is well fed here. And have a roof over their
heads and they take care of their elderly. Unlike the EE.UU ?
what country is that? You know that place where homeless
sleep all over the streets? Not here they really take care of their
own. There is so much food here there is an obesity problem.
The majority of adults are over weight. This is a problem with
lots of school aged kids as well. No starvation here. No way.
Got a fishin pole? Get
the message? Now
tour eating pretty
good. And mangos
grow wild everywhere
and year round.
Just in We just
spotted a young
school girl we know.
Maybe 13 or 14. And
she is pregnant. We
never would have
guessed it with this
girl. Seemed a bit
Zika? never heard of
SO WHAT ARE GOING TO DO WHEN SOSUA SHUTS DOWN ?
Well , we have been thinking about this for a long time now. Now, you can
always go to FarmersOnly.com and get yourself a nice round well fed country
girl. One that can slop the hogs, rope a calf and drive a tractor. Now if your
in Sweden this could be a problem. No? Not good? Ok, we will keep lookin.
BUT IS LOOKS LIKE WE MAY BE OPEN FOR A WHILE. STAY TUNED
