Sosua Beach is a small beach town located on the
North Coast of the Dominican Republic. It is located  
between Cabarete, ten miles to the East and Puerto
Plata, twenty 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 tuned for
all the Sosua News and Eventos from  this tiny town.  
Never a dull moment in Sosua Beach. Here at
ILOVESOSUA.COM,
we cover Sosua News, Sosua
Nightlife, Sosua Events and Breaking News.
We also
cover  events and news stories for Cabarete, Puerto
Plata and the Dominican Republic North Coast. STAY
TUNED as always. We are all about the Sosua Party.
INTRODUCING SOSUA BEACH
BEER , RUM,  BEACHES,  BARS.  DISCOS , PARTIES,  EVENTS,  MUSIC , AWESOME  TRAVEL, HOT LATIN LADIES, FUN
ITS ALWAYS LADIES NIGHT, HAPPY HOUR AND A PARTY GOING ON AT ILOVESOSUA.COM
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

SOSUA NEWS 12/28/2017.  HERE IS OUR LATEST CONCERT REVIEW AND  A BIT STRANGE
12/23/2017.  Just a different kind of night  at the Anfiteatro Puerto Plata on
Saturday.  The evening started off just 1.5 hours late unlike the 2.5 hour
wait we had for Frank Reyes.  Come on Frank!
But things kicked off with  
the mystery band Divas by Jimenez
.  See upper left pic and pics below.
Well they are made up of a seven piece band, was solid and girls voices
were just booming. And very nice voices.  And loads of energy.  And they
are very pretty. Their voices maybe shattered eye glasses in the crowd.  
But the locals barely knew their music.
 The Divas would point their mics
towards the crowd and few were singing along
.  With most acts here they
are singing at the pain level.  But with the Divas. Pretty quiet.  And their set
was quick, lasting about 20 minutes.  
Then came on Alex Matos and a wildly
energetic set of his Salsa hits
. Wow can this guy sing and he can sustain a
note for a long time. He did all of his well known hits and the crowd loved
him and sang every word.
The 3rd act of the night was the Poochy Familia.
Who? We never heard of them but seem  popular
. There are four male
singers and they look like a Mexican Mariachie Band and sound like
Marengue fuzed with a little Salsa? Hmmm just not for us.  No gusta.
 Then
came on Mark B with his hot dancers and solid hip hop act
.  He was fresh
off Festival Presidente.
And a surprise visit from Hip Hop singer El Mayor
Classico.
 And the ladies went just crazy over this guy. He drove them into
a frenzy.  By the way the concert was FREE and still was not a full arena
and yes there was ten minutes of rain.  See the foto to the right.  Everyone
but us had an umbrella and we ran for cover. But all got back to normal and
was a good if not great night of music.  And a shout out to Coors Light for
writing a Big Fat check.  And  please stay tuned. These concerts pop up
unanounced. And gentlemen, these concerts draw loads of pretty ladies.
SOSUA NEWS 12/31/2017. A TALK ABOUT THE GROWING PROSPEROUS DR MIDDLE CLASS
SAY WHAT ? You crazy? We are just sick and tired of all the talk about poverty here in the
DR.  Thats all anyone talks about.  And more Sosua charities
. This  country has a booming
economy and with it
a large growing MIDDLE CLASS with increasing spending power.  Just
recently a new Jumbo Super Market opened in Puerto Plata along with the La Sirena
Market prove this.  Think about it and enlarge these pics.  These retail chains plus others
are growing thoughout the island and cannot survive serving the so called 2% of the
population hogging 98% of the wealth while the rest of the population eats out of
dumpsters.  Just not possible.  These markets and many other businesses are packed with
the DR Middle Class freely spending large amounts of money.
 Over Black Friday  Weekend
La Sirena put on sale at least 200 flat screens. Many 52 inch. That weekend every one was
sold. Thats not just  the rich 2%
. Come on. Just look around and look at all the late model
cars and trucks rolling around.  9 out 10 are driven by Dominicans. Not rich Gringos and
the wealthy. Just open your eyes and look.
 People are starting businesses here in record
numbers and gaining wealth like never before.
We live all around this. Ever sliver of land
has construction projects going up.  Yes there is poverty but all but a few have at least a
newer smart phone, a scooter/pasola, motorcycle  or car, a roof over their heads and cable
TV.  We live here and see this everywhere.
 And everyone gets enough to eat. No one is
starving here trust us. Maybe just the opposite
.  And there are numerous educational ops
for anyone with ambition, including a Technical University where anyone can learn dozens
of skills. The government has done a great job here.  SosuaNews.com reported yet another
Sosua Charity.
 If people want to get ahead here , the opportunity is there. MORE TO COME.
SOSUA NEWS 2/27/2018.  Puerto Plata pastor Melvin David Quirez on 2/9/2018 was
sentenced to15 years in prison for raping dozens of women
. This knucklehead
brainwashed these women by convincing them his semen was sacred and
blessed by an envoy of god, then convincing them if they have sex with him they
will be saved. And these stupid ladies believed this guy. We dont have an age
range but most likely teens and twenties.
And the result is dozens of children
confirmed by DNA testing.
 Readers, these are the same guys that have been
attacking our Sosua party for years. We wonder how many times he has been to
Sosua yelling over a loud speaker telling everyone they wil go to hell for having
sex outside of marriage.
This behavior is widespread and is the rule not the
exception.
 The DR is infested with  evngelical groups from the US and Canada
who rent a store front or building and do nothing but preach and scare the poorest locals with their going to hell if you
dont think like us BS.  And coming from Gringos they believe it.
They provide no money for school uniforms, books,
health care, food, etc. All the recourses go on recruiting. And little to no support for local restaurants or businesses
.  
This preacher was no doubt influenced by these groups. There have been a number of cases of sex abuse in local
churches. This is just the first one we reported on. Also, the Sosua area is full of useless NGOs that are here for girls,
sex and beer. Just Hipocrits. And thanks to
WWW.DETRASDELRUMOR.COM.DO for your great reporting and great work.
We are just tickled by this story.  We will be on top of these stories as they break. The Sosua economy remains slow.
OK Readers this is the most insane article in our ten year history. The
recent Atlantic Ocean low pressure systems including the Noreasters
hitting the US East Coast have caused huge waves to hit the
Dominican North Coast.
As a result the sand on Sosua Main Beach
shifted from the west side of the beach to the east side forming an
large new beach
on the east side in front of the old Sosua Bay Resort.  
Now you must enlarge these pics to get the real picture here. Please
enlarge the top middle left pic. You will see water right up to the
seawall, slamming the front of the resort. As you see there is no
beach. Now look at the upper right photo.
There is now 40 yards of
new sand
.  The concrete posts, upper right were in five feet on water
two weeks ago. The lower right pics show the old boat launch. Now
look on the bottom right.
There is now forty feet of sand from the boat
launch to the water. Boats can no longer launched.
The three photos
on the left show a decimated west side of Sosua Main Beach.
SOSUA NEWS 3/12/2018. ATLANTIC STORM SWELLS FORM AN ENTIRE NEW BEACH IN SOSUA.
SOSUA NEWS 3/23/2018. A BUNCH OF NEW SOSUA BEACH PICS. WE DUG INTO OUR VAST ARCHIVE AND
We found some photos above showing all water on the east side of Sosua Main Beach. Please look at the 2nd
from the left shows water crashing into and destroying the sea wall. This went from all water to all beach
And thanks to our  good buddy Tim for these dramatic drone pics. All rocks and water to all beach.
Mother Nature created a new Beach but ravaged the west end of Sosua Main Beach. The middle pic shows this part
of the Beach when healthy. Mother Nature gives and takes away. And all we can do is sit back and watch the show.

SOSUA BEACH NEWS 3/30/2018.  SOSUA BAY IS ANGRY. WE WERE SURPRISED AT THE EROSION
We should not be surprised at Sosua Main Beach erosion at this point, but we are.  
The upper left  pic shows the newly formed section and it looks ok. This area and
the areas back under the trees will have to hold the majority of the normal 8,000 to
10,000 partiers on Saturday.  The other three pics show severe erosion creeping
into the normally wide middle areas of the Beach.
Tne waves were high enough to
draw surfers and no one was in the water.  Waves were slamming into the sea
walls
.  But the Semana Saturday Beach Party will go on and draw a record crowd.  
Same with Beach Fest in Cabarete.  The beer and rum will be flowing and the music
blasting.  Still the places to be on 3/31/2018.
Please scroll down for more pics.
SOSUA NEWS 4/22/2018. We saw a
recent article in SosuaNews.com
on Sosua Mayor Llana Nuemann
promoting the Sosua Sharks  
Basketball Team. Do we have a problem with this?
Of course not.
But not one time have we seen the
Mayor supporting Sosua small business owners.

We have no record in eight years of her welcoming
a new business to town.
Nor have we ever seen
her patronizing a local business
. Ever see her in a
Restaurant? Never. If so, email us a photo. By all
accounts we can find, the Mayor lives in Santiago,
two hours away, not Sosua.
Her claims to fame are
creating a ballet, an art gallery and a violin
concerto
. But supporting the Sosua business
community. Forget it. Employment is way up as is
crime.Dont believe it?
 Please visit
WWW.DETRASDELRUMOR.COM.DO
. Then hit
Regionales. And start scrolling.
It is a crime blotter.
This new strategy of moving the bars to a red light
district will fail miserably.
Point being here is
Mayor Nuemann is not a business person and
never will be.
Still thinking of opening a business
in Sosua? Best of luck. You have our 100% support
Sosua News 5/22/ 2018. Just another pretty photo of
Sosua Bay? Hardly. This is a pic from Sat. There is
world class dorada fishing is this region. Yet the
entire sport fishing fleet is anchored in the Bay. And
never a more perfect day. The reason? Not as many
single guys are coming to Sosua. As a result, fewer
ANOTHER BAD EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN. THIS GUY SHOULD BE IN PRISON. READ THIS !
Sosua Beach News 4/25/2018. There is a German in the area who runs a small internet cafe out of his house.  We will not
mention his name because we need his computers from time to time.
First off, he lives with his girl friend. Sex outside of
marriage? That is the least of it
. The two of them constantly argue.  We can he hear this loud and clear. They just dont get
along.  Two weeks ago everything came to a head.  We noticed his business was shut down and the house locked up. We
asked the neighbors what is going on? Well, the two of them got into a fight. A real fight.
Turns out he beat her face in
and  was thrown in jail.  She was in the hospital for days  getting her face put back together.  And he was in jail for a total
of three days
. Three days? Money changed hands some where and he was let out. We will never know the details. Now
for the kicker.
Ten days later the girl moves back in. Your reading this right.  And we still hear arguing. Not as much, but
its only a matter of time before problems arise once again.  We hope she got lots money. Now why are we reporting this?
Because he claims to be an Evangelical.  He has bibles sitting all over his house.  And if you dont the meaning of some
church holiday, he peaks over his reading glasses and stares at you like your an idiot and your doomed  to Hell.  Please.
Come on.  He also smells like a bottle of rum half the time.  If there was anyone taking advantage of a poor Dominican
woman, this is it.  Right? Its move back in or live in a shack.  
We were not going to report this, but these groups have
been attacking this website for years. As well as the party in Sosua
. They go on the war path, yet do not invest a peso in
the local economy or support for the poor. Buy a kid a school uniform?  No way. Stay Tuned for more. And there is more
for 4/29. This guy also has a dog and four cats,of course they are abused and scared to death of him.
A SOSUA MYSTERY IN THE PHOTO ABOVE
Sosua News 5/1/2018. Please take a look at the girl
above in the black halter.
Her name was Jackie and
was a very good friend of ours for years. And she
was a fixture in Sosua. Very pretty and very nice.  
One night about four years ago she was in Latinos.
All seemed normal until two very angry Dominican
men came into the bar. They took her by force and
walked her across the street to a car parked at
Rumba Bar.
She was forced into the back seat and
off they went. She was very upset. We have not
seen her since. We have no idea if she is dead or
alive
. Most people resurface here sooner or later
but not Jackie.  You old vets would know her from
Merengue Bar. As you walked in the main doors she
would be standing just to the right at the corner of
the bar for years.
Hmmm, What happened? We miss
Jackie and we miss Latinos Club. Very Very much.
SAY WHAT?  After all this Mayor Llama Nuemann critizing we now think the
new Sosua Beach Red Light District is a good idea? Well, we did a survey of
the proposed area.
There is a lot of open space on the  east East end of
Sosua. We forgot how much. Vacant lots everywhere and room for multiple  
bars and nightclubs
. And its also away from the beach so lots may be
affordable.  At least until this news came out. Until now it was basically
useless land. The only hotel in the area is the Ahnvee Resort.  This will
never be a main stream tourist area. There is some construction started
see pic above left. Next to the vacant High Caribbean.  What a
disappointment that was.
This supposed to be the new Sosua Lights Night
Club.
But, the current Sosua Lights is just a beautiful bar with a large disco
and a concert area. They never have concerts there. Just a waste of  a
great venue.
 But spending money this early in the game?  They have 14
months to move.  By the time all this shakes out Sosua might have a new
Mayor. New Minesterio of Turismo?
Maybe. So its too  early to pull the
trigger. But this really could work. Got a Million $$$ laying around. Maybe
you should really think about investing in a new nightclub. And the two pics
lower right show a really quiet Sosua Beach last Sat. Just the start of seven
months of low slow season. Our ever loyal  single guy weekend crowd are
the only ones showing up. And the authorities recognize our value.
Sosua News 7/20/2018. We have  
been going by
the R BBQ Restaurant
formerly Rumba Bar
Saturday and
daily
not one person was in the
place. The cheapest beer in town
and no patrons. The old Rumba
Bar
5/23/2018. Missy the dog is dead. We have been doing health reports on
her lately. We have been feeding her for two years. She ate some type of
poison that affecter her liver. Her stomach swelled up and she just got
huge. We got her to a local vet two weeks ago.
We also contacted The
Dogs and Cats of the DR Charity and spoke to the Director, a retired dentist
named Mark
. He agreed to pay the med bill out of  charity funds. He turned
out to be a first rate JACKASS.
 He refused to help get the dog to the Vet.
He stopped picking up the phone. We had to call ten times to get him to
answer. Never returned a single text or email.
He said he would stop by
the clinic. He never did. Just two phone calls.  He said the medical bill was
US$300.  It was no where near that.  He said the dog had surgery and they
found a bad liver. No surgery was performed.  He never paid the bill
. Then
without contacting us he ordered the dog to be put down.  And he still
never contacted us. I called him 5/21 and got the news. We went to see her
Sat, 5/12. See the first photo above. She didnt look great but was
improving. She was never sick. Always ate all the food we gave her. No
pain.
This guy did nothing but lie to us. He is a complete Jerk. And two
years ago some great person awarded the charity use 15 acres of land
near the city of Luperon for a dog retreat. And little or nothing has been
built. Will it ever be built? Not for a long time. Not with with this director.
SOSUA BEACH, SOSUA NIGHTLIFE REPORT
EVANGELICAL PREACHER BUSTED FOR CHILD RAPE
AND LOOK WHAT WE STUMBLED ACROSS. WE JUST COULDNT RESIST
Sosua News  5/16/2018.  We were out checking
up on the New Sosua Red Light District
and we
stopped by the closed High Caribbean Disco
. No
wonder they went out of business. How can you
run a bar where they dont allow drogas, pistols,
minors, knives. prostitutes and idiots? You
know the place was just no fun. They dont  even
allow idiots! A night club is just not a night club
without idiots.  And to top that, the guests even
have to dress up.
Seriously, we were counting
on this place to be a big hit but got hit with too
many rules and didnt stand a chance
, Now it will
be part of the Red Light District. Good Luck!
SOSUA NEWS 5/31/2018.  HAVE A LOOK AT THE NEW  PASSIONS
Sosua News 5/20/2018
There are about
twenty small clothing
stores and boutiques
in Sosua.  We think
the new Chinese
clothing store will
eliminate about half of
them. Best of luck to
all. You will need it.
OUR WEEKLY BEACH CONDITIONS REPORT
Sosua News 5/16/2018.  On Saturday we found these
guys dragging  large boat across the sand to the
boat ramp on Sosua Main Beach. So what you ask?  
Well this area used to be water. See pic, lower left.
For you new readers,
a series of Norester storms hit
the US East coast his winter and caused huge waves
in Sosua Bay
.  The sand shifted from the West side
of Sosua MainBeach to the East side, creating a new
beach. And a huge track of new sand where there
was once water.  Mother Nature gone crazy.
Now
boata have to be pushed across forty meters of  new
sand
. This is hard work. These guys were really
working up a sweat. Just a little crazy. And Hurricane
Season starts in two weeks. Never a dull moment.

Scroll down for more beach pics. Please have a look
Sosua News 5/22/2018. Just
thinking that if the remaining
Sosua bars and discos are
forced to move there will no
more  places to dance,
unless you want to go two
miles to the Red Light
District.
Sosua is going to get
really boring. The sidewalks
will roll up at 8pm nightly.
Let us all bow our heads and take a moment of
silence for yet another fallen Presidente Beer
Hero. He put up a gallant fight for his life. He didnt
make it.
But he saved his ice cold Presidente
Beer
. We honor and salute you. You will never be
forgotten. And yes, you wil be automatically
admitted  into the Beer Drinkers Hall of Fame. And
yes, we wiped away the tears, sat down on Sosua
Beach and enjoyed every drop.
Thank you and you
are enshrined forever here on ILOVESOSUA.COM
SOSUA BEACH REPORT THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS 5/31/2018
JUST ANOTHER PRETTY PIC OF SOSUA  BAY?  HARDLY
located in a few All Inclusive Resorts. With 25 million
people living on the island. Well you get the point. Not
a pretty one.
And trash is equally a problem. Piles of it
everywhere.
Got garbage? Just throw in into a pile
somewhere or throw it along side the road. Just
sickening. The tourist beaches are kept clean. The
rest are plastic waste dumps.
But if you need a tooth
brush or pair of flip flops you might want to have a
look. The flip flops might not match however
. But all
that sewage running into the ocean. Oh No. Blahhh.
are renting the boats. Mom, Pops and the kids going fishing? No, we dont
think so. Yet another formerly booming Sosua business in trouble? We
hope not but  this is not good.  Lets face it Readers, we are the economy.

A PARASITE INVADING PUNTA CANA BEACHES?
Sosua News 5/27/2018. Will a beach
parasite hurt Punta Cana Tourism?
As we write about a high rise boom,  
Parasitic Hook Worms have invaded
area beaches
. Tourists walking on
the beaches have picked this up and
have required medical treatment with a drug called
Ivermectin which kills the larva and worms. This cause
of this parasite can be polluted water.
North Coast
hotels might just have smiles on their faces? Nasty.
The R BBQ Restaurant, formerly Rumba Bar is open
finally, after two months of delays.
See pic above
left,  Now they have to fill it. No small task since the
old place went through a truck load of beer and
Rum  and a 100 meals or more daily . It was empty all
Sunday afternoon. Sosua is looking shabby. Shut
down bars and restaurants and piles of trash on the
streets.
 The new Red Light District bar construction
has stopped. No surprise there. To make this work it
will take at least five bars going up at once.
And
Sunday was a perfect beach day in Sosua and Main
Beach was empty.
 Worst Sunday crowd we have
ever seen
. This is just killing the beach bar and
restaurant business. Porque?
And  we had a nice
weekend party crowd that always saves the nightlife
.
We just cannot believe what happened to the old
Passions.
It is now set up as a private, exclusive
enclave for bachelor parties and groups.
It has 14
nice rooms, a beautiful pool area with a pool bar.  
Parties must rent the entire facility.
The cost is
$1900 USD per day. But wait a minute! It is an All
Inclusive package that includes all meals, beer and
premium liquor
. That sounds expensive until you
break it down. A group of 14 would pay a mere $135
per person per day. Not bad.  Only one  of the
original three bars remain. See above left. But it is
nice.
Bachelorettes? It is open to you as well. And if
you want to see what the original Passions was like.
Please go to Google Images and hit in Passions
Sosua. You will need a cold shower after looking at
these pics.
Like to rent? Contact us ASAP. We will
get you set up. This is total luxury. Really Nice!

SOSUA NEWS 6/8/2018  A PASSPORT STAMP NIGHTMARE IN HAITI
Well Readers, if you decide to leave civilization and move overseas as an
ExPat, you will have to get your passport stamps updated.
 So we made
our annual treck to Dajabon DR and into Haiti on Sunday.
 We exected it to
be smooth, but we soon found out a new system is now in place. Not all of
our previous stamps were showing on the computer.
 We were brought
into a separate room and it took three hours to get things figured out
.  We
paid 8000 RD or Dominican Pesos. This is $162 USD.  Then another $30 in
other fees. We then went into Haiti and got stamped there. Which took
two minutes and $20 more. Plus gas. It took an entire Sunday. They also
take fingerprints now. A whole new system.  The meter starts running
after 30 days. We waited over a year.
 Or you can pay when you leave the
country,
but its best to go to Dajabon like we did. Not fun and a three hour
trip, 120 miles, nothing to look at, but you have to take care of this.
WE APPRECIATE ALL OF OUR GLOBAL VISITORS
NEW FOUND RESPECT FOR THESE LADIES
We bought some produce from
this lady. And then picked up the
basket an put it back on her head.
It had to weigh 60 plus pounds.
And these Haitian ladies walk
around all day like this. This is
called working for a living. Uhg.
Sosua News 7/1/2018. The Sosua
Main Beach Sunday crowds remain
moderate. We need sellouts here
every Sunday.
And it looks lke the
R Restaurant BBQ grill will make it
.
But with all this remodeling, we
wound up with a new Rumba Bar ?
Yes. Just call it the new Rumba Bar. the same basic
layout, except the parking lot is now all tables.
And noiw
there is a real happy hour with happy hour prices. 80
peso Presidente Beers are the lowest in town.
WHY ARE WAGES SO LOW IN THE REPUBLICA DOMINICANA?
Sosua News 6/13/2018. There is constant talk and debate over
low wages paid by employers here in the DR.
There is one
word. It is called DISTRIBUTION. When a worker is hired about
25% of their monthly pay
has to be paid when that person is
fired. That payout starts after three months of employment.
The government has set appropriate pay at 29,000RD or Dominican Pesos
per month. About US$640 Dollars to cover rent, food and other expenses.

But a large number of DR workers make between 9000 to 15000RD. These
are store clerks and various unskilled workers. Of course no business is
going to pay a high wage under these circumstances.
Now if an employee
quits or steals and is fired, is the payout different? No, not always
. The
owners of a very well known Sosua restaurant noticed food missing from
their freezers. They installed a camera and filmed a long time worker
stealing food and taking it out the back door.
They fired him and refused to
pay his Distribution. It wound up in court. The judge or fiscal sided on the
worker and the owners had to pay out 100%. Even after viewing the
videos
. So, expect to pay the Distribution if you open a business in the DR
Some businesses, especially on the beach fire their workers close to the
three month deadline then hire them back. So the average wage will
remain at about US$3 per hour.  As long as this law is in place wages will
remain low.  Remove it and wages will go up in a  hurry.  Or be like many
here, learn skills and start a business.  Many Dominicans do  and some
make it big. We cant help think about a well known Sosua restaurant owner
fired an employee and had to pay out 45,000RD or at the time US$1000. The
employee, who we knew well, was very happy.
 Now you know. Stay Tuned
THE R RESTAURANT AND BBQ GRILL
Sosua News 6/14/2018. Has a real Happy Hour
going from 4 to 7pm da\ily. And the best beer
prices in town.
80 pesos for a small Presidente
and 120 pesos for a grande
. Very good. The food
prices seem a little high.  And they need a Cuba
Libre Special as well.
This is a true Happy Hour.
Now they need to put butts in seats. Good Luck!
ON THE POLITICAL FRONT. WE HAVE TO BE PATIENT
MAYOR NUEMANN HONORED BY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
Sosua News 6/22/2018. Sosua Beach Mayor Nuemann
was recently honored by the local Catholic Church in
Charamicos for her support of the Patron Saint
Antonio De Paupua. Who?
We were talking to a very
well known Sosua businessman who concluded the
Mayor has conpletely ignored the local business
community
. He has been in business here for 17 years
and has never met Mayor Nuemann and has never
been in his business. She is too busy spending time on this nonsense and
too much time with the Sosua Sharks Basketball Team. And the Casa De Arts?
Few if any care about this. But spend time with the local businesses? Never.
Nor have we ever seen her in a local restaurant.
 Supporting local
businesses should be her number one priority along with a new local public
hospital.
 Outside of some new asphalt and a few sidewalk repairs, The mayor
has done little to nothing except damage the local economy in 8.5 yeers in
office.
Thanks to SosuaNews.com for the article. Sosua needs a new Mayor.
MORE VINTAGE SOSUA. IN ALL ITS PARTY GLORY
TWO PHOTOS  OF D LATIN DRINK THEN AND NOW
We sneaked into the old DLatin Drink
Night Club in Sosua. Still building of
course, and took a pic from the exact
same spot. On the left during boom
times and now on the right.
We think it
shoud be an arcade, not a restaurant,

which will fail. We see little hope here.
Sosua News 7/20/2018.  This pic is vintage 2008. A busy
party night in front of Bar Central in the heart of the
Sosua Beach Party Zone. Before HD. Scenes like this
will return in 2020. We have no choice to be patient.  
But the party is still going so dont hesitate to get on a
plane.
Without the single guy party crowd the Sosua
economy will completely collapse. Get on a plane!
Sosua News 7/1/ 2018. Yes, another Evangelical preacher
busted. This time for the raping of a nine year old child.
The
article did not say what sex. We will assume it  was a female.
Arrested was Candido Arraujo, 42 years old of Samana RD,
which is located on the far eastern tip of the island. We
Hope he is chipping rocks  in the 95 degree heat.  
And these
are the guys are constantly scolding everyone for immoral
behavior.
Please scroll down for two more similar articles,
including the preacher telling women his semen was
blessed by God?
Scroll down and have a read. Much more
to come here. And Thanks to DETRASDELRUMOR.COM.DO.
for this story. Nice work! Keep it up and stay tuned.
AND THE DR IS MAKING ITS OWN WHISKEY!
Sosua News 7/1/2018. Yes Amigos, the
Republica Dominicana is producing
its own whiskey. Kings label, which is
being made in Santiago. Whiskey is
currently being made in Scottland and
in Kentucky and Tennesse in the US.
That puts the Dominican Republic in some very rare
company indeed. And no, we havent sampled any
yet, but will soon. Seagrams may be part of this also.
OUR KNUCKLEHEAD FRIEND AND SOME  DATING ADVICE
Sosua Beach News 7/7/2018.  Ok Gentlemen. And
Ladies? First off many come to Sosua Beach after a
breakup, divorce or maybe your just in a dating slump
and need a change of scenery. Few places fix your
problems like Sosua Beach.  
Within a few hours of
arriving you will getting smothered by some hot young
lady.  Immediately your brain will turn into a useless glob of non functioning
mush
. Yah, back home your a rocket scientist working for NASA. Here your
brain shuts completely off.
 Case in point ,our retired ex cop buddy from the
States. We have written about him before
. He is a long time vet here and
should know the game.
But NO! Ten years ago he bought a house in Sosua
without a Deslinda or Survey. Huge mistake because he cannot resell the
place without
.  He has gone to numerous Lawyers/Abogatos and they rip him
off. Take his money and no survey ever gets done. We suggested that he go
to Century 21 or Coldwell Banker for proper advice. But no he wont do that.
Go figure.
This guy also got formally married to a young Dominica  girl.  And
legally married her. A huge mistake.
Everyone thought he was nuts. The
marriage lasted a year. And he had to undo it  at huge expense. He had to
settle with her. The whole thing cost him thousands of $$. During the
marriage she spent his entire pension every month.
He also paid a fortune in
false medical bills for her entire family tree
. And this guy never learns. He
recently let a Hatian girl move in with him. Another poor girl off the street.

And once again she is spending his money like water. His pension is about
$1000 per week and he is always broke. Have mercy.  Relationships here n
the DR rarely work out in the long run. We strongly suggest you come out
here and enjoy yourselves. Learn from our amigo. We have been seeing
some of the same girls for years and its great but they arent moving in. No
Way. Another thing you will have to put up with are Latin soap operas. The
ladies here addicted. You want to watch a ball game and she wants to watch
these aweful soaps. An hour of it ok but all day? You will have no choice but
to put up with it, get a 2nd TV or find a sports bar.
 If you decide to let a lady
move in with at least make sure she has a job, some smarts and the ability to
support herself
. If not you will quite simply lose your mind. Stay Tuned
AND LETS NOT FORGET BOCA CHICA
Sosua News 7/7/2018.  And Readers.
Lets not forget Boca Chica. There is
always a nice party going on down
there and maybe its time to check it
out. Located on the South side of
the Island, close to the Santo
Domingo Airport.  And lots of condos and low to
moderate priced hotels. No its not as nice as Sosua. The
Beach is not as nice as Sosua Main Beach, but how many
are? But its OK. Nice enough.
BC needs more bars and
discos. That will change in a hurry if more of our party
crowd shows up.
Some of our amigos only go to BC.
Remenber our past story about a 58 year old guy  from
Florida got his first passport, went to BC and Njust went
crazy.  Partied like a rock star for five days. We wont go
into too much detail, but use your imagination. We like it
and will make more trips. The party lives in Boca Chica.
Sosua News 7/13/2018. Well The Dominican Rum
Festival took place at the Anfiteatro in Puerto Plata 7/6
and 7/7
.  And there was a modest turnout at best. We
got in cheap and our drinks were free. That can be
bad and we over indulged big time. Rum flowing
everywhere and who were we to say no? A big thanks
to  Ron Brugal and Macorix House of Rum for building entire bars on the
grounds. And Roble, a ron/rum company from Venezuela made the Fest.
Absent was Ron Barcelo, the 2nd largest Rum producer in the DR. Why, we
dont know. Now, for the concert. It was just about all Maregue. The locals
love it but we do not.  Just sounds like a bunch of screeching with mostly
bad singers.  The crowd was estimated at 2,500. The capacity is 7.000 so the
place looked empty.
To draw in more people they must bring in a better
concert. We would say it was just ok
.  Not bad for the First Annual Festival.
NEW SOSUA BEACH REPORT AND PARTY NEWS
DOMINICAN GOVERNMENT IS ISSUING $ 1,8 BILLION IN BONDS
WHERES THE
HAPPY HOUR?
Sosua News 7/20/2018.One of these two guys will be the
next Mayor of Sosua. Either way we cant lose. But we
have to wait until 2020.  Until then expect the party so
be muted.
After the next election Sosua will one again
be the Rockin party town it was meant to be
.  Until 2020
the economy will suffer. Not much party news
right now
would just pack em in starting at 5pm daily with regular
prices. No drink specials. Just amazing.
Eighty  peso
Presidentes and zero
patrons.  Hmmm. We are looking
forward to Anthony Santos at NY Ranch on 8/4. Tickets
will be about $20usd.  He will bring his great band and
will rock the house. You will not be disappointed.
But
few acts get a crowd rockin like Don Miguelo.
 He will be
playing on Long Beach 8\5 2pm.  As part of the
Presidente Verano
concert series. And the best part is
admission is FREE.  This will be a fun weekend.  
And
Sosua Main Beach Sunday traffic remains 50% of normal.
Sosua News 7/20/2018. The DR government just issued 1.8
billion in 6% 10 year bonds due in 2018. This will help
balance this years budget shortfall. The bonds have been  
given a BB- rating. Not good but not too bad.
The situation
here is considered stable
, but issuing debt is also
dangerous. It has to be paid back. Look at the USA?
