I was reading your interesting article on the Mundo King Museum that's located in Sosua I believe however the article did not mention either the location or a address of the Museum. Could that info please be listed so that your readers would know where to visit if interested.

They need to update the hotels in sosua. Water pressure no good plus ac over 10 years old. Come on hotel owners stop being cheap and put some money in your business. Talking about 3 star, more like 1

Tony, I wasn't referring to you specifically.
There are many different types of A--holes, all over the world. They come in many different shapes, sizes, colors, and sexes, and have different in-come levels. Just look at your president for example, or my arrogant Prime Minister in Canada. As far as not having conversations with someone next to me in a bar. I have never been one to shy away from talking to strangers. I believe it make life more interesting to get to know people, where they are from, what they do, who they are. But that is just me. Unfortunately, not all people feel the same way, or maybe they don't speak the same language, or maybe there just A--holes. Who knows. I have found a lot of Europeans cold that way and I'm a white boy. I don't think it's because of race, or at least I hope not. Buy the way, I don't pre-judge, I only know what I see. My wife and all her family is black. Don't matter to me.

Do they still close the street 1 night a week to traffic in front of jolly roger?

30 or 40 min in traffic and at least $50 = 2,200 peso. So $100 round trip.

My wife and I bought a condo in one of the nicest places in Sosua. We treat people with respect and as a result have always gotten respect in return. Although, I cant't say people (even ligit sales people) are always honest when it comes to giving the correct change after purchases. So watch yourself!
The north shore of the DR is beautiful. The culture and infrastructure is what made us buy there instead on the eastern shore (Punta Cana).
To Chris and Bill...
have you ever taken the opportunity to actually speak to any of those 'Black' Americans you call 'boisterous' and 'trash'? Demonstrations of being the 'alpha male' is more a function of age than race. As the testosterone production declines so does the volume. By the way I'm a 'Black
' American. I've walked all around Sosua and patronized (while sitting at the bar alone) some of the most popular local establishments. There have been Europeans seated on either side of me and not one have ever started a conversation to get to know me. I believe they make assumptions as to why I'm there, and assume I'm a 'one a be gangster' or is looking for the most 'Bang' for the buck. Neither of which could be farther from the truth. People grown on in different cultures and therefore have different values, but let's stop pre-judging and actually get to know the man.

My name is Albin and I am helping a friend of mine to find a person he has been looking for all his life. We have now got information that he should be living in Sosua and I need help to find more information about his whereabouts. Is there any register where all the people in Sosua is registered with adress etc so I can get in contact with him?
Best regards

Question? Is the book nook still open?
Thank you

You want the Amet to stop the wealthy owners of expensive vehicles for speeding and red lights. I don't think so. first of all there are no wealth people in dr. what there is, is cheap people they live there cause of the low cost of living. Than the people in those rent a cars that see all the poor driving habits of the Dominicans thinks it's normal so they just go with it and don't forget they just paid $500 to $700 in air fare to get to Dr and $75 to $120 for that rent a car daily. Please keep all this in mind.

Could anybody tell me if/which restaurants/grocery shops might be open on December 25, 2017, in Sosua? Need to eat!
Also, what is the general mood that day of festivity - place is completely shuttered or some open and some not?
Thanks in advance.

Hey Chris, in Sosua,
Yeah, the police thing was kind of funny!
But, if you live in Sosua; you know what I am talking about better than anyone. I love the DR, I love Sosua, but the one thing that is awful about the country is the corruption. The corruption there is almost as bad as in the states! My only saving grace is that I look Dominican (at least that what the Dominicans tell me), so I can blend in and not be a target; unless I open my mouth to speak. So, I will just keep my mouth shut; stay away from the police and keep enjoying my frequent visits to the DR!
Bill, USA

1 December 2017
Bill, Thanks for the great laugh.
That is so funny. I agree, the police in the D.R. are Mafioso with a badge and a gun. They have the legal right to do what ever the F--k they want to extract money from the tourists as well as there own citizens, however they can. Extortion, bribes, threats and more, are all part of the bonus money divvied up at the end of the day. Sin verguenza.
Extra police = Christmas Bonus.
Chris, Sosua

29 November 2017
Thanks Sosua News on your article on banks rates. I will look for banco progresso. Where is it located in Sosua?
Louis, Canada

29 November 2017
Extra police in Sosua! LOl
Give me a break!
You must be joking!
That's the equivalent of putting more criminals on the streets at Christmas time! The police in the DR are criminals, and they are even worse in Sosua! LOL They rob tourist more than the people they are supposed to be catching! I know because they robbed me, so I am speaking from direct experience!
Bill, USA

26 November 2017
No problem.
Btw don't trust no one in sosua. No one's your friend. 90% of the people you meet see you as a bank with feet. and if the cops ask for money, food or a beer say no. If you say yes once it will be expected every time.
Sosua warrior, Ny

24 November 2017
Thanks Warrior.
Plus my back charges me $5.00 per transaction. Still safer than carrying a pile of cash.
Louis, Canada

22 November 2017
Louis you can take out 2 transaction a day at banco poplar. For a max of 10,000 pesos each. So that's 20,000 pesos in total per day I think it's 200 pesos per transaction. So to ball park it I say 10,000 =196.00 USD 200=3.75 usd.
Sosua warrior, Ny

5 November 2017
Josephine, or anyone,
when you take money out of a bank machine in Sosua, what is the charge and how much is the limit per transaction?
Thanks in advance.

I would like to thank everyone so very much for coming out to El Choco last night. Marco Pompeo and Jacqueline were of course first class providing heartfelt hospitality second to none. They were one of the first establishments on the north coast to provide live entertainment to this area and their cuisine is so damn good. During your next visit I encourage you to stop in for the el choco experience, a delicious meal and live music, you wont be disappointed. Oh and every Tuesday they provide free appetizers and live music from 5-7pm. Their restaurant is called Parada tipica el choco at the entrance to the monkey jungle road directly across from the entrance to ocean village on the main highway and I am so proud to call marco my brother. To be honest, I was quite nervous before starting as it has been quite a long time between playing but my wife put my mind at ease reminding me that here your friends are your family.
Good to be home.
Denver Colorado, Sodua

It look that you are really in love with that place. It's more a love and hate relationship for me. I have to come in winter but I couldn't live in the DR. I like to come and I like to escape. Hat off to you if you've found emotional stability with a native woman. So you are the one! In my 30's a year and a half bicycle trip made me cross the rocky mountains twice. I can imagine what your feelings are about the big nature. As far as I'm concerned I tend to see the wonder of 4,5 billions years of evolution but it's not a subject you can talk about with the dominicans. Not a problem.

Passions boring?
Am 33 years old how could passions be boring.
Nick, USA

31 October 2017
Right Terry,
Every time I leave Sosua, I take one last early evening stroll across the Sosua beach, with my Dominican Wife and our Son, and I must say, I always get emotional. As far as I'm concerned, Sosua and it's beach is the most beautiful place in the whole D.R. Punta Cana is too touristy for me, and Boca Chica is like the A--hole of Santo Domingo. I have already told my wife to put some of my ashes in the Bay and some on the top of Torres, as well as some in the Rocky mountains, west of Banff, back home in Canada. When I go to meet my maker, I will thank him for the extra effort put into this beautiful place. I can think of no other places I'd rather be when I go. As far as Passions is concerned, I don't need to frequent those places.
Chris, Sosua

29 October 2017
Sorry Nick but Passion was boring because it was a place out of the dominican world. And Sorry again but the view, the water and the atmosphere of sosua beach outperforms ten times the beach of Boca Chica. Who agrees with me upon the fact that this bay (or should I say MY bay) seen from the hills over los charamicos is one of the wonders of this country. Just walk the very steep road starting in front of the caribe tours bus station in los charamicos, take a left after 200 meters and take another left. The view will emrbrace the entire bay and the mountain of Puerto Plata. I wish not too early I could feel my last breath in a peaceful place like that.

28 October 2017
I heard Pierre Giorgio Hotel in Sosua is closed, any news on this?
Nick, NYC, USA

26 October 2017
Ya Chris it will survive, I don't know on what. But whatever. passions was the only thing that was worth the overpriced plane fare to pop. was looking to sosua back but the beach at Boca chica is better & the hotel prices even better.
Nick, USA

25 October 2017
Probably had a bit to do with all the unwanted publicity Cuba Dave was giving it. Made the authorities and local government look a little harder at the activities going on there. Don't worry, Sosua will survive without Passions.
Chris, Sosua

25 October 2017
What happened to passions? Once they closed I know it was down hill for sosua.
Nick, USA

23 October 2017
Thanks All.
I will probably bring travelers checks. Don't want to be holding too much cash. I would rather not use the ATM much. I know the ATM charges are highway robbery over there, and I'd rather the banks kiss my arse than give them my hard earned money.
Louis, Canada

23 October 2017
I have been going to Sosua for 35 yrs. Been quite awhile since any reputable place would cash travellers cks. Even had my purse stolen and credit cards left with wallet as they are virtually unusable. If you want to risk it, fine. I certainly would not. ATMs work just fine and you are not dealing with sketchy people
Josephine, USA

21 October 2017
Every time I would go to Sosua there would be people like Josephine say they are no good there. The over 30 years going there I never had a problem. Just do what I'm telling you and you should not have a problem. If you want call Gary at the Spanky's bar befor you go, tell him you will be drinking at his bar and you like to cash American Express checks. He even has rooms there for rent to where you walk out into the bar.
Bill, Miami

18 October 2017
Travellers cks are basically useless in the DR. Not sure you can cash them anywhere. Used to be you could cash them at a bank if you had an account there. And then you had to wait 30 days for the cash. Use your ATM card.
Josephine, USA

18 October 2017
There is a guy if you are walking down on the right side pass Chassicos before you turn right there is little stores he is in one of those. He will exchange American Express for you. Now what they give you is up to you how strong you are. I all way told him that I would only deal with him and my 2 friends would to, so he would be exchanging a lot of money. So I all way got the market price, you will need your passport so he can make a copy. There others who will change for you too like the bar you go to a lot the owner will change them to. Go Spanky's see Gary the owner he change for us to, have fun and be safe.
Bill, Miami

18 October 2017
I know cash is king, but can you cash travelers checks in the D.R.? Where? and what is the charge for cashing them? American Express? or other? I will be there next month and could use the advice.
Louis, Canada

Thanks Ron.
Found a piece of land for sale near Santo Domingo. Buying the land and building the my home 51k usd. So much better than that 132k -300k in sosua. I don't know where they get there pricing from. looks like they pull them out a hat.

The prices for foreigners are very different than for Dominican citizens. Try using a Dominican agent to step in between you and the seller Rick and see the difference that will make.
Good Luck.

What a shame. Global warming, and it will probably only get worse as we continue to over populate and pollute our planet. Something has to give. What are all those filthy rich politicians, greedy businessmen and oil tycoons going to do with all that money when it all comes down? Fly off to another inhabitable planet in there private spaceship?

Sosua's tourism has plummeted sharply over the last decade and not because more American men are going there now. Once upon a time, Sosua had many venues. there was something for everyone. especially on the west end. But throughout the years, local officials kept shutting down venues w/o replacing them w/new businesses & now they remain in ruins as eyesores on the main street. And reminders of Sosuas golden age. local officials have no idea what to do. DLatinos has been closed 4+ yrs now. rumbas has been closed for a while. now bourbon street is closed? Lets see how long it takes for new businesses to replace them. Notice how officials whittled away the most popular places on clisante. Sosua officials have really shot themselves in the foot by shutting down businesses & not replacing them with something else. You could tell by all the changes (& lack thereof) there's way more to it than meets the eye. They say 'lets upgrade it', make it more 'family friendly'. Shup up & do something! cause its not fair to tourists, residents & the remaining businesses there. shutting down venues & not replacing them creates a bottleneck effect w/ppl on clisante between Rosen & duarte. you have more ppl than places for them to go. But the 'gringos' are to blame for Sosua's demise. yeah tell that to the hoteliers, taxistas, bus services, bar, club & restaurant owners & politicians that we've made very wealthy.

As for my experiences in the Dominican Republic over the years I have admit that I have met some of the nicest people to be found. As an ex sailor in the USN I've traveled extensively (just returned from Bangkok Thailand and Beijing China not long ago) and I've seen several sides of human nature in the natives and tourists alike. Unlike some of these posts I always remain mindful that I am a guest in these wonderful places and every native is my host... old fashioned maybe but I've found that very seldom are respectful and gracious visitors attacked, robbed or duped when they create alliances instead of victims. One must remember that money is scarce to some natives but their honor and dignity is not for sale. I've seen the tricks and the treats out there and the treats mightily outweigh the trickery. BTW I'm African American male, the owner of businesses and come and go in the world as I chose but I never ever lose sight of the obvious... to get respect one must give respect and the man or woman who treats someone with anything else should tear up their passport and stay home. A shout out to John, Mercedes and the crew at Casa Valeria... will see you on 9/26/17.

I was in Sosua in July to celebrate my Birthday. The night before my Bday I took a girl back to my apartment. She was a dark skinned women. I asked her if she was Haitian. She reply no that she is 100% Dominican. We had drinks at the apt. and I believe that she slipped something in my drink because I was totally knocked out. I was awakened by her telling me that the police wanted me downstairs. I was very groggy and dis oriented I managed to walk to the door and look outside to see what was happening. She ran out ahead of me. when I turned around and looked in the apartment i discovered that I had been robbed. My safe door was open all my money was gone all my jewelry was gone and my cell phone. So this was truly the worst birthday in my life. I would advise anyone don't put your drink down where someone can have access to it. I usually use a combination for my safe but in this case the combination part of the safe was not working so she went through all of my stuff and found the key to the safe. This is what makes a great place like Sosua so bad. You think that you can trust people but they have one thing in mind ripping you off. Not all girls are the same. There are really some nice ones there who just want to put food on the table. But how do you know which is which? The worst part about this is that it could have been prevented if the security guards had waited for me to come outside and tell them that it is O.K to let the girl go. But if you ask me I believe she paid them. Everyone there seems to think that all Americans are rich. Even when you bring the police into the picture they are only looking to see how much they can get paid. I will be going back soon but I can definitely say that things will be real different. So remember everyone there is poor and you cannot trust security or police. The only thing that matters there is the Dollar.

8 August 2017
Bill, I feel for you.
This is something that is very wrong. I too have had items stolen by Girls there, and I wasn't even trying to pick one up. I just wanted to get out and have a few beers. Some of the people there can be very sneaky. Drugs, gangsta culture, disease, it's all there for the taking now. Too bad, because it's such a beautiful place that has turned into such a cesspool of delinquents. There is a different mentality there now than there was years ago. I agree with Roxanne, nothing you or I say on this forum will ever change what has already changed, unfortunately. All we can do is vent. I know you have to watch yourself there, but what happened to you is beyond your control. Everyone will have to meet there maker some day. I don't pretend to be better than anyone but I do have some self respect and try to remain humble, friendly, and keep a good sense of humor. But if that happened to me I would be really pissed off. I'm not sure what I would do, I might just tell the Girl to F-off and change Hotels before she came back with the Mafia. Might have cost you less and given you some satisfaction. Could have been a case of mistaken identity. I will continue to travel back and forth to Sosua as there are many things I love about the place, but I'm sorry to see some of the way the culture has adapted.
chris, sosua

7 August 2017
Hey Chris,
Thanks for your response. I totally agree with you on a lot of your points. Not all but some do beat there chest and act like they are a little bit better. I know for sure they do not act like that in the states. I do not agree with all that happens in Sosua, but I do not know if it will every change.

I'm talking about my last trip there. One night as I was going to my hotel, got to the gate the guard and girl was there. She said I have to pay here money from when she was with me. I never seen this girl ever before. She said she will get the police if I don't pay her. She was acting crazy so I pay her to get rid of her. I told the manger the next day he felt bad for me. Thinking it was all over I was told later that day that manager needed to talk to me. He said the girl has a lawyer is going to charge me with beating her up and she is going to have a baby, and Pics of marks on her body. Now I've never seen the girl ever but with the law, the one with the money is all way wrong. So the manager and the guard when with me to meet with the lawyer and girl. They where going to send the paper work in to have me arrested. Knowing if you let it go farer on to court you still will never win. So I cut it of there settle on a payment. Knowing that if I when to court I would be in jail and would never win and lose everything back home. For 32 years never had a problem like this and there is nothing you can do but pay and get the hell out of there. I'm not happy because I love Sosua and was thinking of living there, but never will until they clean it up and I know it's save again.

I know not everyone is the same. Everyone grows up with different morals and standards. I'm sure by the way you express yourself in your letter, that your a very nice and respectable person. All I'm saying, is that there are a lot of Americans coming here that have no respect for anyone including themselves. I'm sure their Mama's would be ashamed to see how they behave in public. Even I feel embarrassed for them. I suppose they are just looking for attention, but these guys act like they just got out of jail, or are about to go into one. Please Guys, have a little class and self respect for yourself as well as for others. Then you will get respect. Right now there are many guys who act like some kind of out of control orangutan, beating there chests and trying to act alpha male. Maybe your Momma should have slapped you upside the head a little more often.
Respect earns Respect...

I would agree that some of the Black American's are somewhat boisterous, but most are very friendly. My husband and I have been coming to Sosua for 11 years at least twice a year. I am from the South and I feel I am very friendly. I have felt some not all of the Europeans are not very friendly. It is just your culture. I am always speaking to people, but every culture might be like that.

Chris your so right I was going to Sosua for 32 years. Back in the old days I was going there, where only Germens running Sosua a lot of fun and never any problems. But now these one a be gangster style are a big problem there. They do not respect the Sosua people. The last time I was there I had a big problem there because of the way the girls have change and only want to rip you off. So I cut my trip short and got the hell out of there. When they get all the trash out of Sosua and it goes back like it was before then I will feel safe in going back again.

What I mostly see here are Canadians and Europeans setting up businesses in Sosua. They were here long before the Americans discovered the BEAUTY this island has to offer. There are Americans as well. Un-fortunately most of the Americans I see coming here are very loud and boisterous, and are only here to get the most BANG for as little a buck as they can. I'm sorry to say what I see, but what I do see is Americans bringing there style of culture here with them when they come. No matter where people are from, they bring there culture with them. The style of culture I see a lot of Americans bringing here is not exactly sweet and innocent or very refined, and could many times be defined as being on the verge of gangster style.
Sorry, as I see it.

I was deeply disturbed by the recent article on Sosua Beach Bars that asserted Americans were fueling the Prostitution and bad situations here in Sosua. As a resident of Sosua i would like to personally attest to the fact that Sosua wouldnt be what it is if it werent for the input and investments from americans both black and white Americans are known here for their generosity and kindness. And as a rule are better recieved by the dominican natives because of this. Other groups have a reputation o fbeing more closed fisted and closed minded, except when it cones to underaged Haitian girls. Some writers inthe feedback openly honor and respect people who are known criminals, and go out of their way to support and promote their businesses. That being said, it would do well to acknowledge value of all tourists whocome gere and spend their money as opposed to trying to sway the crowd into velieving ine group is of more calue tha another

So AMET wants to enforce laws which translate to huge fines based on missing items 'IN' the vehicle. Of course these items are not available so they can nail near everyone. As we all know, a fire extinguisher will not stop a crash! Although this is targeted at Gringos, it's the locals who will pay the price with increased transportation costs which then translates to lost jobs and a higher crime rate. Want to do something useful, do real safety checks on all vehicles instead of being bribed to allow the junk that is on the road creating a hazard to human life. If AMET is looking for a cash cow, they should really enforce safety based laws! or get a multinova speed camera like they do in N
