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