    Boca Chica will be returned to its former glory and only three people complained about the tear down of the old beach shacks, as I paraphrase the story.

    Some of the places were 50 years old that were taken down.

    I never got to see the former glory.

    It was a lovely place back in mid 70s when we used to go there. So was Embassy Beach (Playa Caribe), sad to see it almost abandoned these days

    Nice to see something constructive happening to BC.

    I lived there for a few years back in the eighties and even then the people would complain that the govt. had forgotten about them.

    I knew a lot of great folks back in those days.

    Closeness to the capital is a huge advantage of BC. And its huge potential at the same time.

    I started my adventures in BC just about 20 years ago. It all started with my aunt that had purchased "tire share weeks" and had so many she would just give them to any family member. A couple of years later I bought 40 weeks and went through them fast. Then I started branching out to other parts of the DR settling in on Juan Dolio 4 times a year.

    In two weeks I am " settling in" to a rented apartment in JD having made almost full circle back to BC. I think BC certainly has the potential and I see no reason why it won't re invent itself over the next few years.

    Amazing the optimism for Boca Chica and the pessimism for Sosua. Both trying to do about the same thing and going through similar stages.

    Very different places, very different demographics.
