Foreign men have been traveling to Sosua for many years because of the beaches and the sexy women
Traveling To Sosua
The easiest way to get to Sosua is to fly into the Puerto Plata Airport. Sosua is actually closer to the airport than Puerto Plata is and it won’t take you long at all to get into town.
However there is a set taxi rate of $25 for the trip which is quite high. When we list the hotels later you may want to inquire about a free airport pick up or see if they will pick you up for cheaper than the $25.
If you will be spending time in other cities around the country then you can also fly to Puerto Plata but most would suggest you take the bus. Caribe Tours is probably the best option, try to ask for an express bus that won’t make a bunch of stops along the way.
If you are coming from Santo Domingo the price will be around 300-350 pesos. If you are coming in from out of the country and only traveling to Sosua then just fly to Puerto Plata to make things easier on yourself.
Once you are in town you can pay overpriced taxis for tourists or use the local transportation like motorbike taxis and mini van buses. If you go the local route they will be much cheaper and help your budget out a lot.
Another important budget travel tip is to not exchange money or buy anything at the airport. You will get a terrible exchange rate in the airport and will get much better value when you get into town. At the time of writing the current rate is 50 pesos for every $1 USD.
Bring $10 for your entrance fee that gets you a 30 day tourist card and $25 for the taxi if you aren’t getting a free airport pick up. Then change the rest of your money to pesos once you are in town.
Taxis, hookers, and some hotels or restaurants may accept US dollar but you will get a better deal most of the time by paying in pesos. If you try to negotiate with a taxi or hooker in dollar they are going to try to rip you off.
Hotels In Near The Nightlife
When single foreign men take an adult vacation to Sosua all they need to do is locate themselves around the Pedro Clisante and Dr Rosen where the nightlife is. The area is not big and you will get the feel of it in no time. Even if this is your first trip to Sosua you will know pretty much the whole party scene within a few days.
We gave links directly to their homepage instead of to an online hotel booking agency. That is because they will often give you a better rate if you contact them directly, but you can go ahead and price compare on Booking or Agoda if you are on a budget and want to save some money.
If you choose any of those hotels you will be walking distance from the red light district. You will also be close to Playa Sosua which is the biggest beach in the city. Another good beach nearby is Playa Alicia.
- Big Mama’s
- Big D’s
- Cafe Italiano
Rocky’s is known to be great for breakfast. For drinks and nightlife just stroll around the Pedro Clissante and Dr Rosen entertainment district and you won’t be hurting for places to party. If you aren’t much for pick up bars then try to meet women online.
