The future of Sosua


Oct 15, 2015
I support self isolation upon returning to Canada. Get a test at the airport and go home. If the test comes back positive Public Health will tell you what to do. As of now, it's a quarantine with real teeth not a suggestion. Fines, jail time and the police stopping by to make sure you are where you are supposed to be. People who aren't sick need to be able to move about to get food and other things they need especially after returning from being away. No employer is going to authorize an extra two weeks off work because an employee wants to take a trip.
Smart! If only the USA had done that from the new year onward, this would be under control with limited economic damage.

I'm already here, but I have two more reservations to get here as I was hoping that one wouldn't get canceled. American said the flight was full so I can change my reservation. I guess I'll kick it out as far as I can perhaps I'll need to make a short trip back to the states.

Actually as of the other day ,, in some places ( to not go off topic) , you do not even have THAT right any more.
You MUST Wear a mask even in PUBLIC in the Open....

So thank you for proving what a slippery slope this is ..

and I agree with the sign you posted ...but its no longer reality ..
and getting worse
meanwhile the #s are getting BETTER .. just that many more people are being tested ,, so the total #s are getting higher ,
the percentages are dropping however . to the point where its no longer even a Pandemic..
they are lying to you.
The future of Sosua does depend on sustainable tourism.

We have a small commercial rental that we forgave the rent on for 3 months. The renter, business owner called yesterday saying that she has this months rent. She had to find us since we use an agent that is MIA and was worried. GOOD tenets are hard to find... she's a keeper.

Of course. Looking at a menu on my home computer would be exactly what I would do, given that it would be my only option in this case.

My wife and I laughed out loud at the chicas/meals/ Western Union joke.
Just that my experience with establishments keeping their online info updated and accurate has been less than stellar a lot of the time and it's often not easy or straight forward finding the info you are looking for. Website design and functionality in the DR leaves a lot to be desired.

Speaking of Sosúa, can anyone tell me what the Plaza Europa is like and if they would recommend it? Thinking of staying there a couple of weeks in August.

I passed Kings/Rumba yesterday afternoon and was surprised to see about 40 clients sitting and enjoying drinks or food. I also passed the Chinese restaurant on Camino Llibre between highway 5 and Pedro Clisante. The Chinese Restaurant is gone, space is empty, and a for rent sign on the door.
