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.

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

SOSUA NEWS 12/20/2017 NOCHE DE BATCHATA. FRANK REYES PUTS ON AMAZING SHOW
On Dec. 16, Yes we made it. Frank Reyes and his amazing band
played a great 2.5 hour set. included were most hits from his twenty
plus year career including Nada De Nada, Amor Distancia, Por El
Alcohol, Quieren Es Tu and Princesa with a Hot Hot dancer. There
was a team of dancers performing all evening. But what a show. We
hear Franks music everywhere, but seeing him live with his just
rippin band takes his songs to a whole new level. The songs are
rearranged and sound much better in concert. And the crowd was
really into it. They were singing all the lyrics and Frank really didnt
have to sing. Just start the song, point the mic towards the audience
and let them take over. Another concert done to perfection at the
Anfiteatro. This is at least the 20th concert at the venue that we
never thought would be completed. Shows you what we know. Now,
there were actually four shows going on at once. Frank singing,
dancers dancing and the performance by his awesome saxophone
and guitar players. And just one Problem. Say what? Yes the concert
was to start at 9pm. Frank didnt arrive till 11pm. The crowd was
getting grumpy and we were getting really sore sitting on those hard
wooden bleachers. Next time we bring our chiropractor. But once
the music started the pain just went away. Just Awesom
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.
2/5/2018. IS THE US STATE DEPT DR TRAVEL WARNING JUSTIFIED ? MORE COMMENTS
Sosua Beach News 2/25/2018. Earlier this month the US State Dept issued a High Risk travel warning for US citizens
traveling to the Dominican Republic citing wide spread violent crime including murder, robbery and sexual assault. Also
included was easy availability of weapons. Also, you are advised not to fight back if being robbed and always be vigilant.
This was reputed by Tourismo Official Napolean De Las Cruze saying this is one of the safest travel destinations in the
region, hosting six million travelers per year. Do we agree? We advise never to isolate yourself. Always stay in busy well lit
areas. Sosua Beach and Cabarete are very safe if you take common sense precautions. We see tourists wearing too many
gold chains. Rolex watches and Iphones hanging out of pockets. And always lock up or hide your valuables in your room.
Most hotels have lock boxes. Carry at most one or two thousand pesos, not your entire bankroll. And if you are thinking of
taking that romantic midnight stroll on the beach? Forget about it ! This is a great way to get robbed. Carnival Season is
here so keep your valuables tucked in your pants and kept secure. Pickpockets are everywhere. You will be walking
through some very large crowds, Be aware and you should have a safe trip. Also include in the advisory were the Bahamas,
Barbados, Antigua, Jamaica and the report said there are no safe areas in Haiti. Gee, what a surprise there. Excercise some
basic precautions and you should have a safe trip to Sosua Beach, Cabarete, Puerto Plata and the entire DR.
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 sieman 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.
AND THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING PESO?
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.
Well Readers, It was a somewhat disappointing Semana Saturday
Beach Fest in both Sosua and Cabarete. The weather was hot and
sunny and the water calm for a change.. But in Sosua the severe
beach damage on the west side of Main Beach reduced the normal
huge crowd by at least a few thousand. The new section of beach was
mostly empty. Most of the crowd gathered in the still fat middle of the
beach. A big crowd but the worst we have seen in 12 years. As for
Beach Fest Cabarete. The normal crowd but nothing but DJs and
taped music. Last year Don Miguelo and his 12 piece band rocked the
stage and drew at least twice the crowd size. Taped music and DJs
just dont cut it. Its the cheap way out. Come on and spend the money
and bring in some top acts. Cheapy Cheapy Cheap. Last year both
beaches had great parties. But still a great time. And we predict next
year the beaches will heal and we will get back to normal. Stay Tuned
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 4/29/2018. And thanks to our buddy at SosuaNews .com for the info on the new Sosua Red Light District.
We will believe this nonsense when we are standing in the finished building. We just do not believe the current
owner or tenant of Sosua Lights Nightclub will spend a Million Dollars US on land and a building with Mayor Llana
Nuemann in office. How damn stupid can anyone be? But she has tried everything for 8.5 years to bring in an
alternative tourist demographic and has failed miserably. You could sit in downtown Sosua for two weeks and not see
a single gringo family. Just think about it. Investors s[ending fortunes on new bars and discos in a place where
authorities can shut you down for no reason at all at any time. We have seen this with Passions, CMP Club, Rumba Bar,
DLatin Drink, Bermuda Bar, Latinos Club, Ranco Tipico. All closed for absolutely no reason at all. These bars violated
no laws. Much more to come here. We will be checking things out over the weekend. What next? We just dont know.
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.
MAYOR NUEMANN ENDORSING A RED LIGHT DISTRICT ?
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.
SO WHY ARE WE A LITTLE IRRITATED THESE DAYS?
Sosua News 5/4/2018.Recently, Someone attacked some of our five
year old YouTube videos. Yes some unemployed nut case. And
YouTube removed them, until we responded and they were put back
up. We assume is was some evangelical with nothing better to do.
Also one of these crazies complained to his or her US Congressman.
Yes we also got a visit from a congressman. We are sure they were
trying report us as promoting sex. We cover twenty different topics
here. A wide variety of news stories. That congressman probably like
what he saw. Can we suggest some golf or fishing? Stay tuned
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.
MORE HIGHWAY CARNAGE AND A PEDIATRIC HOSPITAL?
Sosua News 5/4/2018. The area is seeing more auto
and motorcycle carnage lately. Make that always.
Gaspar Hernandez, Cabarete, Sosua and the entire
region is without a trauma center. Just tragic. It is
forty minutes or more in an ambulance or someones
pickup truck to Puerto Plata. The nearest hospitsl
And the charity Samaratan Foundation is putting up a childrens
hospital on the highway near the military base, about ten miles west
of Sosua. Siting a desperate need. This is just a waste of money. Kids
here are very healthy. Exremely healthy. And so many of them. We
need a fly swatter just to get to our houses. The government does a
great job providing free health care including vaccines. We see few
if any sick children. We have seen few sick children in twelve years
here. We need a public hospital in Sosua for everyone. Pre natal
care here is also impressive. Just no need for a separate pediatric
hospital. By the way a brick wall was put up and that is it. For three
months this site has been vacant. No progress made here. And a
note. If you want to volunteer to work on this or any Samaratans
projects you need to donate $5,000 then $2,000 per week after that to
cover water and ministerial costs. We saw this on one of their
websites. Ministerial costs? Maybe we are in the wrong business?
The founder is supposed to be a philanthropist. This means
spending his own money out of pocket. Sounds like he might be
making a profit. Aways something dirty going on. And where is the
money come from to support this hospital? Very expensive. Above

Sosua News 5/22/2018. Can you believe it?
Hurricane Season has arrived early according
to the weather sites. Last year Irma and Maria
spanked us hard. But in Sosua and the entire
DR, the weather is just perfect. Never
Better. Warm Sunny and Dry. And SIX new
articles. Scroll down and check em out.
NEW HEALTH REPORT ON OUR DOGGY FRIEND MISSY
5/16/2018. Pictured here is an update on Missy. She is the street dog
that ate something poison which caused her stomach to bloat to the
point where she was ready to explode. We got her to a hospital and
the pic to the right shows her progress one week later. Hmmm, still
doesnt look very good to us. Her stomach still shows lots of bloat
and her ribs and spine are sticking out. We wonder if she is getting
better or worse. She is a great dog that needs a great home. Yours?
Puerto Plata News 5/9/2018. We saw this story
on SosuaNewa.com. Readers, Puerto Plata is
over grown with vegetation but there is almost
no wildlife. Yesterday we saw a water bird
called an ibis, but just one. The only wildlife
here are taranchulas, centipedes, a few garter
snakes but nothing exotic We think most
species have all been hunted to extinction. And
very little fossil record. We will keep looking.
PUERTO PLATA IS NOW AN ECOLOGICAL ZONE?
VINTAGE SOSUA AT ITS PRIME TIME BEST
ARE YOU LOOKIING AT THIS PIC? STRAIGHT OUT OF
THE WILD WILD WEST DAYS IN SOSUA. TOO MUCH FUN
EVERY MAY WE REMEMBER OUR OLD FRIEND NAOMI
Sosua News 5/9/2018. Every year we take a pause
and honor the passing of Naomi. She was a
transvestite and a huge part of the party scene. She
rode around on a chopper and wore some exotic
outfits. But always nice to everyone and a true party
animal. She was murdered allegedly by a boyfriend.
It was very grisley and was a huge new story here in
Sosua. This happened in May 2011. Eight years!
Sosua News 5/11/2018. The Chinese government
has offered the DR a huge US$3.1 billion in loans
and aid. The conditions? All economic ties with
Taiwan must be cut off. China considers Taiwan
an illiegal wayward colony and are doing its best
CHINESE GIVE REPUBLICA DOMINICANA US$3.1 BILLION
to isolate it by offering developing nations this type of aid package.
And we are seeing the increasing Chinese investment here. This
loan package will be used among other things a new gas fired
power plant and a new highways. And the US govt is all upset
claiming there will be an imbalance of power in the region. Come on
the DR is a low priority for the US. They pay little attention to the DR.
We are seeing huge increases in website visitors from China,
including Shenzhen, Nanjing and Jaingsu. Hey, wait a minute we
thought China could not get on Google or the other search engines?
AND LOOK WHAT WE STUMBLED ACROSS. WE JUST COULDNT RESIST
We are predicting an economic mess in Sosua if
the bars are forced to relocate. In there place
will be a few oversized restaurants that will fail
or struggle at best. And think about it.
Downtown Sosua will shut down by 9pm nightly
5/11/2018. SOME SOSUA BAR THOUGHTS AND UPDATES
The pic above is Sosua Lights Nightclub. This is a huge facility that
has one use. A bar and disco. If forced to close it will remain empty
for good. Maybe another Chinese clothing store? Maybe. But expect
the current Sosua bar area to become an economic dead zone.
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 5/15/2018. Is somebody kidding
us? Is this really a bar going up this fast? Two
days after the announcement that the Sosua
bars will have to relocate? Now come on. We
have been living in Sosua a long time and
building permits are just not given out here or
anywhere that fast. And plans and blueprints
made up that fast? We will be watching this
and reporting weekly. Stay Tuned y Good Luck
IS A RED LIGHT DISTRICT BAR ACTUALLY GOING UP?
SOSUA NEWS 5/16/2018. MORE SOSUA BAR NEWS, UPDATES
Just the same old boring Sosua Bar and Nightclub News. The R BBQ
Restaurant is still not open. Eight weeks late now. The middle pic is
the old Passions location. It is finished and still not open. Problems
with City Hall on these two? We think so. Upper right is the old DLatin
Drink. It is a disorganized mess with no game plan. With the bar
relocation announcement they tore out a nice new bar. Sosua Lights
and Clasico Disco/Merengue Bar are the last two bars standing. And
Bourbon Street Restaurant continues to stay open thanks to the NY
brothers spending big bucks here. Without them it would close in
one week. It is run by our friends at Ahnvee Sports Resort. Stay Tuned
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.

years and continue to be amazed at what goes on in Sunny Sosua Beach.
Sosua News 5/16/2018. The
Dominican Peso continues to
weaken against the US dollar and
other foreign currencies. It is now
49.25 pesos for one US dollar and
58.25 pesos to the Canadian
Dollar. When we arrived in 2006 it
was 32 pesos to the US dollar.
This should make it more
expensive to export product the
the DR, Right? But the cost of
living and inflation are pretty
much under control here. We are
not sure why the paso is so weak.
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

5/22/2018. AND ANOTHER MOTORCYLE DEATH
SOSUA THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS 5/22/2018
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.
AND WE MUST HAVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE
.Where do we start today? And readers. Have you ever seen a town being
run like Sosua Beach? How would you like to run a bar or restaurant here?
Business owners have no idea what to expect one week to the next. And
all Mayor Nuemann and the authorities think about is getting rid of
prostitution. When all they have to do is buy five padlocks, shut down the
remaining bars then clear off the streets. A one day project. Over and
done. But no, its endless nickel and diming. They have had 8.5 years to
bring in a new tourist demographic and few are coming. So far this project
is a complete failure. There is some new blacktop and a few new
sidewalks? Our loyal party crowd is not as loyal and the result is vacant
fishing boats, empty restaurants, hotels and a very slow Sosua economy.
On prostitution did you know this is mainly a dominicans doing business
with Dominicans thing? Thats right. 90% plus of these tranactions
are between locals. And every city and town are loaded with one hour love
hotels. And they are very busy. Lets clear some more Sosua BS. The
working girls who come here 18 to as old as 40 years old. They come here
in taxis and when there night is over they go home. This human trafficking
issue is 100% BS. Our And everyone knows it. These women are here on
their own free will. They are not forced to come here. Prostitution is legal
here in the DR. Pimping is illegal and they should be locked up in jail.
LEAVE THE DANCING SHOES AT HOME?

A NOTE ON CONTROLLING POLLUTION IN DR
Sosua News 5/22/2018. Pollution
here in the DR garners little
thought or discussion. Lately,
just a little. Few Dominicans
think about the environment or
its impact. The only sewage
treatment centers we know of are
And another recent fatal motorcycle
crash near Cabarete. Two cycles hit
each other. One dead at the scene and
another severely injured. And 40
minutes to the nearest trauma center
