I am planning to visit some friends in Sosua and wonder if anyone has recently taken the mountain road Santiago - Puerto Plata # 25?
I understand that it was damaged badly during the rains last month and that even the bus drivers refused to use it.
Has the road been repaired? Or at least is it passable in a car? If not what is the condition of the more westerly route, # 1 - 5?
I am new to this forum although I have been reading it avidly for some time. I find it very informative and entertaining.
I own a house in Santo Domingo and spend about five month per year with my Dominican family here. The rest of the year I escape to Toronto, Canada, for a little peace and quiet. ;)
