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.

Current resident here.The place is picking itself up slowly as businesses start opening and there are a few more folks on the street during the day.(i'm not a night owl so leave that report to others.) The place is beautifully clean at present so let's hope it can stay the way and whilst the murals are an interesting distraction it's difficult to imagine them in a few months or so when the glamour wears off.
So far we are fairly tourist free but I guess that will soon change once the airport gets going properly and the hotels kick in.
As for many folk's favourite subject,our friendly ladies,I have little to comment but I don't see much to shock a parish priest so far.

Just can't figure out why so many posters who have obviously no knowledge of the town insist on posting inane rubbish about the place?
I could go over to a Jarabacoa thread and start posting about how utterly boring and wannabe alpen I found it on my few visits but I don't feel the need.
The inane rubbish posters claim deep offense at the legal sexuality aspect of the town yet cannot control their deep attraction.

I don't recall hearing people on DR1 claim being offended. Maybe some do.

But most Dominicans would prefer better employment opportunities for their kids rather then being a puta or motoconch. Most business people would like to see a transformation to something else other then spandex on PC. And most Doms are embarrassed by the whole thing. And their voice counts most.

Are you really appointing yourself to speak for most business people and most Dominicans?
Do you hear people on DR1 and then decide who's voice counts?
Most people have to read it.
Could be time to stop listening to the voices and just type for yourself.
No one knows all you claim. I know are not in the least embarrassed by any expression of sexuality.
The Dominicans I know are not in the least embarrassed by expressions of sexuality. It a normal legal thing here they have seen all their life.
The embarrassment, consternation and shock is more of a prudish US and European response to something that they have never seen before.

We're not talking about expressions of sexuality. It's about raising a family and hoping your kids can achieve a better life then you did. That's a universal desire. And that's not achieved in a town known for sex tourism. Middle class families in sosua are no different. And there's a lot more middle class in Sosua now then 20 - 30 years ago - talk to them and you'll be enlightened.

What's said on dr1 amounts to nothing when it comes to shaping policy on the NC. Dom's make those changes.

"better employment opportunities for their kids rather then being a puta"
With NO other " employment opportunity " she will ever make even a tiny portion of what she is getting for the company with a nice polite educated clean politically correct and high IQ American gentleman. Get real.

why would anyone raise their children in Sosua? except maybe the outer regions. Middle class in Sosua? Assuming you are talking about Dominicans, where pray tell is this burgeoning middle class living?

Although I would really like to see Sosua cleaned up,
most of the Dominican men I know who live in and
around the area are complete leeches who've zero
desire to work a real job or progress in life.

Once again you show your lack of reasoning.

Many Dominicans grew up and live in Sosua.
What about the ones living in Sabaneta, La Cienega, Loma de Los Chivos, La Union, Montellano, Puerto Plata?
You think life is far superior there, with great chances of employment and advancement?
For that matter you can go to just about any Barrio in the DR, including S.D. and Santiago, no great luxury life there either just for a few fortunate ones.

Ever been to any of the barrios and seen what goes on there?
Nowhere on the island is a puritanical life, including many of the corrupt "evangelicals".

Sosua just shows the results of Dominican governmental abandonment of it's people.

Other than that, Dominicans enjoy sex unapologetically (except Windy's Family in Cabarete) from young to old, not like the perverted system in the US,
Underground prostitution, sting operations chasing Johns and Prostitutes, while Politicians know how to get"it" and tax revenues from the sex industry.
Heck, they didn't yet get over Clintons BJ and sexual encounters on 9 occasions with Monica,
Meanwhile trump is selling beans on the Resolute Desk.

Dominicans and Sosua will figure out their way.
