If you drive from the airport to Sosúa, on the right side of the road you pass by the neighborhood La Unión.
The neighborhood consists mostly of three-story flats.
But behind this neighborhood lies the hamlet Caoba (Mahogany).
The hamlet was founded a long time ago and the name says it all, there are many old thick mahogany trees.
The houses are mostly built of wood and covered with galvanized corrugated iron.
The roads between the houses are full of holes, and when it rains they are almost impassable.
Fortunately, Mayor Ilana Neumann ordered the public service works to equalize the roads.
Last Friday morning, July 18 heavy equipment arrived to do the job.
Unfortunately, there is no money to pave the roads with asphalt.
So after the next heavy rain storm, the streets will be as they have always been, full of deep holes.

The recently newly elected chairman and businessman Gustavo Andrés Pastoriza of the ADSSosúa Foundation (la Asociación de Desarrollo Sostenible Sosúa) gave his views on the future of Sosúa.
He did this during a reception in restaurant Morua Mai in an interview with an employee of the TV station 'Ola TV' (channel 1).
Andrés said that with the closure of some bars and to prohibit women to enter a bar alone deteriorates the living conditions of many residents.
Sosúa is a city without chimneys.
So without industry and depends on tourism.
But Sosúa can not be dependent on sex tourism.
Sosúa has a lot to offer to tourists interested in culture and nature.
The beautiful beach, the Jewish culture, the multitude of international restaurants, the rich nature (ecotourism) and diving.
