Snapshot: Sosua, Dominican Republic

Snapshots are mini town/city guides for smaller places or cities I have only experienced briefly. Here’s a little snapshot of Sosua.

Almost good.

What are one´s first impressions of Sosua?

The “Phuket” of DR sounds promising. There´s music pumping, a decent gaggle of girls about and it´s beside the beach. Sounds good eh? FAIL. Sosua is really disappointing.  The beach isn´t bad, the accomodation great, but the party scene during the week is quite sedated. The weekend is much better. That said, having Phuket and Sosua in the same sentence is like putting Jessica Alba next to Susan Boyle. No competition.

What are the women like?

The standard in Sosua is quite poor in comparsion to the rest of the country. The girls here are either wrecked, drug addicted or poverty stricken. There is the odd hottie but nearly all the chicas in the bars are hardcore pros. They´re less freindly and more cunning then what you would find in Asia. You can shore, but it takes a little effort and you´ll just feel dirty afterwards. Hit on the bar girls.


Where should I go at night-time?

Cabarete, the next town! But seriously, it´s easy to find a place if you just walk down the main strip. Places like Latinos or Club Classico are a little more lively. If you want to hit on strippers go to Passions.

Any other recommendations?

Go on the weekend. Hit the beach. Coco hotel is a great budget option. You can bring girls back, it has a pool and if you´re looking for some smoke you`ll get pointed in the right direction. It´s around 2000 pesos for per oz.

The Bottom Line

If you’re looking for decent chicks, skip it.

    Boca Chica in the south is basically the same. Are you gonna dip into Haiti? That’d be interesting… Haitian society is pretty much like Africa I guess.

    Hey Naughty Nomad,

    Do you speak Spanish or are you approaching these girls in English? What has been your impression on the Dominican as a whole thus far?

      You need the Spanish all right. My opinion is mixed, I actually prefer Haiti!!! haha

    I totally agree, NN. I spent several days in Sosua a while back, and I found it wasn’t my kind of place at all. The town has some decent restaurants and bars, but it’s basically a whore town crawling with pros, especially at night. I spent most of my time in Cabarete, just to get away from the place. BTW Cabarete has a great beach but it’s not exactly an easy place to pick up girls either.

    Sosua is in the moment not good place for visit. Police (Politur) make in the moment a hunt on the girls. With each visitor less they have to change a politic about girls.

    This website is a bunch of crap. There are all types of girls working in Sosua. Pros, Semi Pros and lots of girls from Santiago. Not everyone of them is a drug addict out to steal your wallet. Thats just a bunch of BS. and feeliing dirty after sex with a girl here? Come on. Sosua has a large and loyal following of guys who come here every time they get a few days off. Some have been here 100 times plus. 95% of the guys who come to Sosua have a great time. None of you have ever traveled to Santiago and picked up a rich Dominican girl. Cabarete is also loaded with working girls. I have lived here 4 plus years and know the area better than all of you combined

      How about the action in Santiago. I am flying into Santiago airport in the afternoon. I am renting a car to go to Cabarete and will be hanging out I Sosua for a week. I like Sosua. Been there 5 times. I am landing on Friday afternoon and instead of making that long haul was thinking about hanging in Santiago for 1 night. Should I skip it and just drive to Sosua? What would you do?

    I find this website to be definitely off the point. There is a good variety of chicas in Sosua. I travel all over the world as part of my job. I agree, Sosua is not for everyone. There is a lot of hustlers (both male and female). I suggest if you want to get a real perspective of Sosua then you need to visit This website only gives one quick opinion. The one I listed has hundreds of visitor reports. Happy hunting:)

    Um I agree w/ Brian. I’ve been to Sosua & Boca over the last 6 yrs. Boca is small & dirtier. Playa is beautiful in Boca & Sosua. Talent level is higher in Sosua. I grew up in NYC area & have plenty of street smarts, if ur the same, then U will not have a problem in Sosua.

    Remember not all like the dark meat, so if ur that type go to Holland.

    Me & my boyz always have a great time in Sosua. See U there in ’12…

    Agree with NN about Sosua, and I have a bad opinion about Santiago, but Santo Domingo are awesome – love it and i stay there more than 3 weeks. Sosua are like Boca Chica, full with garbage and a lot of pros and cheap things to buy. Once even a mother try to sell me her daughter for an hour – nice :)). The girl was not bad and probably 20$ was enough, but if I see here for some misterious reasons NN are not agree with paying. Sometimes flirt are exhausting and you will spend in the city to convince a girl the same money or more and you dont have success all the time. And a lot of normal girls are difficult after a sex night, they all the time want more, a relationship or a marriage and some pros from DR was incredible nice and with a professional work done, specially if you tell her you will stay more there and if she is good you will call her more :P.
    Santiago was one of that place that you can ask “what the fuck I looking for here?”. Not even one white person in 2 days, a large majority of young girls have already childs on 16-17 age, but somehow is easy so fool some stupid chick.
    Prices for hostels and some food are even a half in Santiago than in Santo. The road from the capital are difficult and a lot of bad roads, definitely will never be there. And in Sosua isn;t interesting also to spend more than few hours of your life.

    I am in Sosua now, have been for three months, and I have to call you out on it, a bit…

    I get the sentiment, some of these girls are way too hardened, but there are some great ones. It’s weird, because it’s literally all pay to play, but I’ve found you can actually use the basics of game and keeping your frame right.

    If you do, you’ll have no problems and you’ll get great girls for the right money. Some of them are properly stunning and they would be trophy girlfriends across most of the US and the UK.

    If you don’t, these bitches will sniff your weakness and steamroller you. I’ve seen guys pay five times the going rate just because the girl knew she could get it. It’s a sport for them too.

    I’m doing a pretty extensive travel guide for Sosua right now, Passions and Latinos are closed, the same hookers are heading to Cabarete and doubling their prices and as soon as you walk through the door of Classicos then the street rats that get inside are suddenly real good girl money…

    I’m on my own self improvement and travel mission, so if you don’t mind the cheeky plug then it’s:
