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.

AGAIN. WHERE ARE
8/4/2017. The transformation of Sosua Beach from a
bachelor party haven to a family resort has been a
rocky one. The two pics to the left are the La Roca
restaurant. The top photo is La Roca in its prime and
the bottom pic is La Roca now. To the right is the Strip
rockin and crowded with business and the bottom
photo is the strip today. Main Beach is not the only
part of Sosua under assault these days. But where
are the families? Seven years into this experiment
and you rarely see a family walking around Sosua.
What happened? This is progress right? Shocking.
SOSUA BEACH JUST A FEW YEARS AGO AND NOW. TAKE A LOOK
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 BEACH NEWS 2/4/2018. SUPER BOWL, WEATHER AND THE US TRAVEL WARNING
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.
SOSUA NEWS 1/23/2018 AND SOME DISAPPOINTMENT WITH THE DOGS AND CATS OF THE DR CHARITY
SOSUA NEWS 1/24/2018. We are seeing record numbers of abandoned and abused dogs and cats. Especially in
Puerto Plata and surrounding areas. The three pics above show one of our good amigos who lives at the Puerto
Plata Amphitheater. When there we always spend some time with him. He appreciates every bit of attention. And
the the two pics to the right are two abandoned puppies and three kittens left on the street. The kittens are
newborns and havent even opened their eyes yet. No way they can survive. We fed the puppies and moved them
and the kittens to as safe a ground as we could find. By the way, we house two dogs and feed about ten dogs and
cats every night. We do our best. And spend $200 US per month on food. And we feed them very very well. Now
for the Dogs and Cats of the DR. We ran into two ladies who are involved and said they had 15 acres of donated
land in the city of Luperon set aside for an animal rescue and retreat. We contacted the owners from their
website and nothing has been done to develop this huge parcel of land. We need to get at least five dogs off the
street. Same old story. Cannot help us. What have they been doing? All this time and nothing? Hords of people
will readily volunteer time and money to the cause and nothing? No fund raisers? Now these folks house 18 dogs
on their property. Great work. We are ready to volunteer. Can you? Please email us or call Mark at 612 524 5482 or
try 829 552 0020. In the mean time our dogs remain sleeping on the street. By the way, Dominicans for the most
part do not like dogs and cats. And abusing them is OK here. Just trash animals. This needs to stop. Lets get this
retreat built ASAP. And we need to have a few of you adopt some really nice dogs. Stey tuned for much more.
ITS SUPER BOWL WEEKEND IN SOSUA. Well the weather is back to sunny and warm. And Sosua Main Beach is back to
very good. And the legendary Sosua Nght Life will be on fire this weekend. There is a huge Party Crowd in Sosua for
Super Bowl Fifty Two. Expect huge crowds at Ahnvee Resort as well as Clasic Disco and Sosua Light Bar. Super Bowl
parties all over town. This will be a huge financial boost to what is a disappointing high tourist season. It takes our
single guy party crowd to jump start Sosua. We are the only hope for the local economy . So we hope you join us for
al the festivities. Football, Presidente Beer, Rum, Ladies and Parties. Is there a Bikini Contest going on anywhere?
We will be looking, but we havent heard of any. Sosua needs to get all the bars and discos open and the bring Sosua
Beach back to the legandary party town its famous for.
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.
HEALTH INSURANCE HERE IS A REAL BARGAIN
BUT YES THERE IS ENTIRELY TOO MUCH CRIME HERE. DETRAS DEL RUMOR.COM
Just some more follow up on the subject of crime. Was the US State Dept accurate ? If you really want to see what
goes on here, please visit www.DetrasDelRumor.com.do. Just be warned this Dominican Republic website gets very
graphic. Nothing is blurred out here. It covers all news but really focuses on crime and lots of car and motorcycle
accidents. Regular new also. But there is entirely too much crime here. There are especially too many young
Dominican males just sitting around idle. We are getting hit up for money all day long. Just too lazy to learn a trade or
get a job. When you are through reading here please go have a look at detras del rumor. It is a real eye opener. Hit
Regionales for Sosua. Puerto Plata, Cabarete and North Coast News. And stay tuned, Much more to come here.
Please take a look and you be the judge. We think the Policia National do a great job.
Sosua News 4/4/2018. Finally a concert at the Puerto Plata Amphitheater on Saturday and it rained off
and on sending us to seek shelter in the rest room area three or four times. It was hot and sunny all
day so it looked like a clear night as well. But in spite of, all seven acts performed. The opening act
was legend Johnny Ventura playing some marangue and his hit songs. We were the only ones who
never heard his music. Then came Eddie Herrera with his salsa hits. Thirdly, Mozart La Para with a solid
set of Hip Hop. We have seen him many rimes and enjoy his act. Tono Rosario then played a great set.
Several of his songs get big airplay. We really enjoyed his performance despite the rain. Tony Dize
came on stage and we have to admit we never heard of him or his songs. And finally David Cada playing
his great salsa. But with rain delays he came on at 3 am with 200 people left. The rain cleared for him
and so did the crowd. The crowd was estimated at 4,500. The seating capacity is 7,000 Disappointing
considering it was the One Year Anniversery. We finally ordered rain coats on Ebay. Now we will
probably go into another draught. Have mercy. Stay Tuned as always.
SOSUA NEWS 3/29/2018 HOW TO SURVIVE A RIPTIDE
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.

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
Caught in a riptide lately? We at
Ilovesosua.com have finally found a
solution. You simply hold your ice cold
Presidente Beer high up out of the
water and yell help. Everyone on the
beach will come to your rescue. Well,
you might not survive but your beer
will. And you will go down a hero and be
automatically admitted to beer heaven
and the Beer Drinkers Hall Of Fame
Yes Readers, health insurance here in the DR is very
cheap. About $40US per month will get you a great
policy. And this includes 80 to 90% coverage for day
visits and 90 to 100% for over night hospital stays.
Very low deductibles. And everyone can sign up. You
do not have to be a citizen. Age is not a factor. There
are some very good medical centers in Santiago and
Santo Domingo. Three top companies are listed below.
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.
COME ON LETS GET A PASSPORT. YOU LIVE ONCE !
WE ARE GETTING VISITS FROM SOME CRAZY PLACES
Sosua News 4/18/2018. We are getting
visits from such far flung places as
Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Beijing China,
Yekajerinburg Russia, Colmbatore and
Cuttack India, Hamilton NZ. Tampere
Finland, Megrine Tunisia, Mendatica Italy.
Many visits from Ireland. And all over the
UK, Canada and The US. And thats just
what we see. Thankyou and stay tuned.
A new and very large Chinese
restaurant just opened in Puerto
Plata. Just huge. About 50 tables.
This is part of the massive Chinese
investment in the DR. But is this a
good idea? We say no. We have been by there a few
times and so far it is empty. The prices average about
250RD or $5US per plate. And not much food. Local
restaurants cost about half that. Just not that much
demand for Chinese food we think. But best of luck.
Sorry Readers, We really got on some of you
about not having a passport. But come on.
Same old bars back home? Same old fishing
hole? Same friends from school? As
mentioned your life begins with a passport.
SOSUA BEACH BAR CLOSINGS. BREAKING NEWS
Recently, a 58 year gentleman who had never been out of the
States, got his first passport. And had the time of his life. He
didnt know what hit him. Now you dont want to wait till your
58. Where ever you live your not far from a passport office.
SOSUA BEACH NEWS 4/22/2018. Calm everyone. Tranquillo. We
have all seen the SosuaNews.com story about all downtown
Sosua Bars have to move within one year. Just not going to
happen. This will effect Sosua Lights Nightclub, Clasico Disco,
Prantinum Disco, The R BBQ Restaurant and the D Latin Drink
site, currently under construction. And other smaller bars.
Bourbon Street Restaurant coud also be affected here. One year
is an eternity and these landlords already have the best
attorneys on the Island ready to tie this up in the court system.
They will fight like pit bulls to keep the status quo. We have
nothing to worry about. The reason for this? To make the area
family friendly. We have been hearing this crap ever since Mayor
Nuemann got elected eight years ago. The families have not
arrived and never will. But she has been interfering with Sosua
Bar owners ever since she got elected. And where are they
going to move? To the Red Light District down Calle Pedro
Clisante near High Caribbean Disco. Hmm, we didnt know this was
a Red Light District. And will they move and rebuild? Hell no! Who
would be crazy enough to spend a fortune on land and buildings
in this Sosua Bar and Night Club environment? No body. The
Mayor wants this current bar area converted to all restaurants.
But there are too many all ready. 90% are barely making their
ends meet as it is. They wil open up and shut right down. So
relax. Come and enjoy the party. It aint goin nowhere. Much more
to come here. Volumes more. So as usual. Stay Tuned.
HELLO READERS. WE GOT CAUGHT OFF GUARD BY
THIS BAR CLOSING NEWS. WE WILL HAVE LOADS OF
WEEKEND UPDATES. STAY TUNED. LOTS ON OUR
MINDS. AND SCROLL DOWN AND KEEP READING
|HAVING FUN IN SOSUA? SHAME ON YOU!!!!
MORE COMMENTS ON MAYOR NUEMANN
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
To you Sosua Party
Vets. Remember how
well Sosua Beach ran
under this man? Like
a Swiss watch. Sosua
needs you ASAP
Sosua News 4/23/2018. Come on we went by
the old DLatin Drink site and just more
insanity. See the top pic. This is a huge bar
just completed. And the 2nd pic shows the
bar completely removed as of 4/22. They
panicked over the announcement that the
bars will have to move. Come on ! This is
just crazy. We stopped by the R BBQ Grill
and of couse its another week before they
can open. We will believe it when we see it.
This new Sosua business model is DOA,
Dead on arrival. We put up a vintage D Latin
photo to the right, in all its glory. Come
Mayor Nuemann. Lets see this new free
spending tourist demographic, packing the
restaurants and filling hotels. Next time we
walk thru town it will be packed with families.
Correct? It is time to produce results.
Coming ASAP. Much more breaking news and we found another
crazy Evangelical Christian. Wait till you read this! Scroll down and
read our current story on this topic. You just have to Stay Tuned.
