    You won't get rid of prostitution until there are alternatives - an illiterate chica can work where to support her family etc.? Closing/demolishing stores just puts more people/kids on the street (many are also homes).

    Option, make a designated 'red light' district - re-open the 'gentlemens' clubs (safety for both clients and 'chicas') and make Bar Rumba and everything West of there a tourist-policed zone (and pay the police!).

    Another issue is pedophiles - enacting the laws on age would be simpler in a designated zone.

    I think I started a family in 2001 in Sosua!
    It was certainly not a destination Liberty Travel was sending families.

    Back to this subject again???? When will they realize that they need to make Sosua the best prostitution town in the world. Stop beating a dead horse and accept the fact that there is no alternative for work. Embrace the situation. Families only travel in winter while these guys travel all year long. Without them, Sosua's low season would be dead season.

    Funny how all of this is being rehashed right after the election.

    So as we all knew, Sosua isn't really seeing any revenue from the cruises

    Please let us know what percentage of the 76.8M pesos ended up in Sosua??? The ARTICLE states, that beach vendors are claiming they are not seeing extra revenue since the arrivals of the ships, not sure where YOU are confused. Also, I know PERSONALLY from talking to bar and restaurant owners in Sosua that they are not getting any cruise folks either, so please provide your monetary synopsis of the Sosua trickle down

    Would you like the phone number of a chofer that I PERSONALLY KNOW (NOTE ALL CAPS JUST LIKE YOU!!!!) that is making good money driving cruise passengers?
    Granted he has to pay off two people to be the "chofer" of choice for several excursions.
    Oh, he lives in Sosua, so not sure if you count this homey.
