    Default whats up with boca chica these days?

    just wondering if the crackdown is still on over on duarte street.

    Summer is winding down here and i am thinking of doing a 5 day weekend later in the year. I am just wondering if calle duarte is still all closed down at night. I am not looking for working girls....but earlier this year it was rather depressing as there was virtualy nothing to do at night.

    I dont gamble...so the casino at the hamaca holds no interest to me..neither does their lame disco. I pretty much just like hanging out on the beach...hopping on a guagua and checking out the other beaches in the area and spending perhaps one night in santo domingo....and hanging out with some of my friends in the area. I just used to like hanging on duarte and watching the street circus at night.

    SO my question is...is BC still on lockdown...or is there any hope that some of the fun might return?

    ws there last night and it was as depressing as ever, Only one new disco open and it is small and cramped and pickpockets all over the place. If i were you I would go to the north coast as I am heading there tommorow.

    well that is sad to hear :-( i have been wanting to check out the north...but i LIKE the south...as i have made quite a few friends there over the years...and i like visiting them.

    like i said in my Original post...i am dont go there for the working girls...i just cant believe the entire calle is closed at night.

    I understand that the govt wants to "clean things up".....but what are folks to do at night if they arent staying at an AI?

    as seedy as boca chica is (i've always called it the coney island of the carib)...i enjoy the beach and the proximity to the capital.

    Sure..clear out the hookers if they want (but they arent really gone are they..i doubt it)....but provide some alternative entertainment at night for adults who dont want to go to a casino or a hooker disco!

    Back in february Boca was dead. I stayed at El Caucho and rarely left the hotel. I am like you, the Duarte stroll was fun for people watching but I don't miss the working girls. The only bar that was open back in feb was Isla Bonita and it was ok for a beer or two right on the beach. It was also funny watching drunk tourists fall in love with the waitresses there. . . . . .

    Default b.c. these days

    get over it! The damn place is shut down. At night only italy ,italy, the little swiss bar, and a fast food chinese rest. are open. day time there is action, of a sort, on the beaches/streets. The gov't has moved all working girls into controlled environments. there are at least 5 whore houses where the girls are permitted to work. Since you don't go for the girls or things of that sort then what's the trauma? go to the north coast i.e. sosua; check in to the europa, garden kettie, or rocky,s and make thousands of new friends. On the beaches; on the streets; in restaurants; sitting, standing, walking, etc.Oh yeah, you will have a good time, too.
    luck, john

    It's kinda hard getting over a place you've visted for years, have become really comfortable at, and where you've made good friends. But I'll say again JJ, you'll love the north. Spend a few days hanging out in BC, hook up with your favorite person and head out on the Caribe Tours Bus from SD to any of the great places in the north. From PP to Las Galeras, its fabulous. I wouldn't suggest going alone though. For a gay traveler up there it could be problematic finding a companion.

    Gee, I could have been wrong, rick. It wasn't a girl from the pink house that spent the night with me at the costalunga. And la sala WAS very entertaining the early evening that I spent their. And I may be wrong about the number of casas also. By 1 one way or the other. However ever I think the op was asking about the potential to enjoy and monger, in his own way, in Boca Chica. And if it was indeed different then when he was last there. There is nothing to defend here. It is changed.

    Rick needs to know ASAP. He hasn't been LAID since the RAID.
