I'm planning a trip to DR.
Would you be able to anything. I want to go to Sosua. According to all my info, it seems to be a decent place but then I read some blogs and I hear it's not so good.

Why would you want to live there. Experience the real DR.

And where would the 'real' DR be?, if I may ask.

If you don't know, I don't know.

What I meant was that the touristy areas do not necessarily represent the whole country/culture as some visitors believe.

Are you OK with that?

Sosua is no necessary a tourist area. Is a town in Puerto Plata, like Sosua, Cabarete, or long Beach, It just happend to be a place where many foreigners choose to live.

Bocha Chica is a town, but it happens to be close to a beach, hence the large number of tourist that choose it for vacation or living.

Are you clear on that?

Nupey, if you don't know about living in the DR, I suggest you refrain from making badly informed comments, please.

I say this in a non cantankerous manner.

As much as I should refrain from responding, here it is.

I'm not really sure that you read my posts correctly. We have to agree to WE are different individuals and see life thru our own paradigm.

If you happened to be in your early to mid 20s, I've been going to the DR before you lost your virginity.

There was nothing NEGATIVE said about touristy areas, but, a lot of tourists go to Boca chica, Sosua etc... and never get to see the rest of the country and assume that those areas represent all that the country is.

Thyey have never seen a campo, Santiago nor Santo-Domingo.

It's like assuming that all of NYC is like 42nd st, Broadway or the Village.

...Also, You have no idea who I am to question my experience(connection) with DR or any other place for that matter.(I say this on a non-antagonistic manner, WINK, WINK).

How much time do you spend in DR or any other country, may I ask?

You just want to challenge someone in all avenues, but, I'm solid as a rock and have a very, very good sense of who I am.

I most likely will be throwing a party sometime this year and I want to invite some folks from this board. I'm dying to see who these personalities are. I must live in a "different" planet.

I actually ENJOY all this diversity. Silly me!!!

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!

Claro. Tell me all of the places that you've been in YOUR country and WE can talk.

You will never in a milliom years have any idea of why the DR is part of my life.

I don't go around mouthing-off on this forum.

So, if I hate the DR, it's a crime. But, if I speak on her and about her, I'm clueless.

DIOS MIO!

I apologize, maybe we go off a bad start with all the talk back and forth with the Haiti<>Dominican thing.

I am not a kid, I am 39 years of age, Iíve lived all my life in the DR, and traveled to more places than I care to remember.

You are right about many tourist just visiting Puerto Plata or Punta Cana and thinking this is the DR.

But, I understand the motive of the original poster, Sosua is a place where many foreigners choose to live because of the beach and night life, Iíve being to Cabarete and the beach parties go as wild as you can imagine, E! Wild On style.

For the original poster, come to Sosua and the DR with an open mind, this is a developing country with a lot of potential, donít expect US or Eastern Europe style infrastructure of standards. However, the DR can be a nice place to live and enjoy life, lots of sun, beaches and friendly people.

About having a maid in the DR (I donít know about Sosua) is really not that expensive, minimum wage is 6,000 pesos a month thatís just around 200+ dollars a month, a real bargain considering most maids are very tidy, caring and good cooks.

Good luck.

I would say La Romana or Higuey.

Lots of development there, and lots of night life.
