    Correct. You are smart person, R.
    You remember we discussed this issue a few years back during our dinner in BM.

    BC has potential and I'm glad they're doing something about it.
    Why you yourself did move from BC ?!

    Just only air crews themselves give BC almost 100% occupancy and business. No tourists or expats are needed (nor desired). And hundreds and hundreds of rich Venezuelans. Who come to BC for money laundering. Embassies. Big corporate headquarters. For all of them the only place for a week-end is BC. And due to "location, location, location" this picture will never change.
    Sosua is MUCH nicer. BUT. BUT. BUT. FIVE HOURS of driving from SD. No good.
    Whoever still flies to Caracas, multiple airlines had their crews stay overnight in SDO, probably BC. This was a few years ago.

    I did not mean to imply that they are good, clean, honest people. The point was that they are very wealthy and powerful. And they love BC even for a short lunch-break. You will not see this clientele in Sosua. Mongers from the Bronx mostly.

    If the layover is longer than one day - they stay in BC.

    No problem from me, Location makes a huge difference and you clarified well why Boca Chica is superior in that way. You did identify the sarcasm I was making of the "superior location".

    It takes less than 5 hours to get to Sosua if you take the easterly road up towards Samana from Santo Domingo. I hate Santo Domingo, but that is just me. The time I was in Boca Chica, it was worse than Sosewer ever was. Both will hopefully improve over time.

    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.
    I personally like JD very much. Been coming here since the 80's. There's the new and the old JD, not the same, but both have restaurants and bars. We try to avoid weekends because very busy. For BC, good news that they are improving it. We might go back and visit in the near future.
