While playing music over the years, I have met far more than several. The number is growing substantially on the north coast while tourism has steadily been lost to Punt Cana. Inflation has hit everywhere, including the north coast.
I have no idea if there are any nails going into coffins. Why would trying to make improvements to Sosua kill Sosua?
Dominicans will still go to the beach and bring their own bottles as well, just like before.
I do know that Sosua did not disappear during the pandemic. Why would changing the beach cause the demise of Sosua any more than almost no external tourism has already done?
I do not think these improvements are going to kill Sosua at all and certainly not in the long run.
Perhaps I should have been more specific. If these vendors are forced to close temporarily or relocate
when they start working, I do think it will be the nail in the coffin for many of them along with some of
the other businesses who rely heavily on the tourist who visit them.
I agree with you (tho it really doesn't need to be said) Sosua did not disappear during the pandemic
and last time I checked, the beach isn't going anywhere either. I am still very curious as to why the
developer/ government has not released any plans to the public regarding how these works may or
may not impact the "atmosphere"/ businesses once the construction starts.
