    Default thinking about move from sosua to las terrenas

    Hi
    I live in sosua but i'm tempted to move to las terrenas.
    Mainly i'm staying in sosua because:
    1 it's a little city and have almost everything i need in walking distance (i don't need a car or a moto)
    2 nice integration of dominicans and expats
    3 price of living not so expensive
    4 have big supermarket (in walking distance too)
    5 restaurants and disco (or something to do at night)
    6 weather, hot but windy and sometimes rain but not too much.
    Do you think i will find the same things in LT, or better/worse?
    Anyone did the same move?

    Default Sosúa vs. LT

    It's more or less the same in LT, depends where you'd live in LT.

    Electricity supply is reliable although more expensive.
    Beaches are nicer.
    Living costs can be very cheap >>>> Yanadu style, that is...

    Thanks.
    donP where's the best place to live in LT? Is the dominican pueblo far from the turistic area?
    From what i've read there's a lot of residences for turists in front of the beach.

    Have you ever been to Las Terrenas? Las Terrenas and Sosua are very different places. Las Terrenas lots of Italians and French and the restaurants reflect that, not much diversity. The beach is nice but not as many people on the beach, Sosua is nice because your only an hour or so from Santiago if you need to buy certain things, LT is pretty much off on its own. I like both locations it will come down to your personal tastes.

    Default LT Living

    Where I live.
    Well, that would very much depend on your needs and priorities, of course.

    LT is widespread and has parts like Barbacoa, Cosón, Los Puentes....
    But, of course, you can live near or in a 'barrio' if you wish for 'integrated living' (term?) or to immerse yourself in the awesome culture.

    This is correct.

    Well, there are Dominican restaurants, and even a Bavarian ( ) and a Russian one.

    In a way, yes.
    On the other hand the toll road to SD takes you there in less than 2 hours.

    Thanks for the replies.
    One more question...do you think it's necessary to have a car or a moto in LT?
    Or everything is walking distance?

    As I said LT is spread out, parts of it are as far as 4 miles from the centre....
    So, it really depends where you live.

    The OP already lives in Sosua!
    The choice seems to be for a small town rather than a large city lifestyle.
    I like Sosua, as mentioned the beaches are nicer in LT.
    Rent for three months and follow your feelings.
