Villas Brigitte Vacation Homes
Sosua Dominican Republic
The bay that surround Sosua is actually split in to two. Los Charamicos is on the westside of the bay and has
a typical Dominican Village atmosphere with its lively Creole restaurants and bars, street vendors and
colorful surroundings. The buildings in the area are old and are typical of most Dominican villages, with
crowded rambling streets and noisy moto-conchos running up and down the streets.Makes for great
atmosphere! El Batey is on the east side of the bay and is the center of Sosua tourist region. Here you will
find the upscale restaurants, boutiques,hotel resorts, villas and nightclubs.
The combination of friendy Dominicans, lifely Latin culture, offbeat expatriates, beautiful beaches and
unspoiled countrside makes Sosua one of the most unusual, fun, fascinating and safe places in the Carribean
Snorkelers can swim about 150 feet from shore and find coral reefs and delightful opportunities for feeding
fish and taking underwater photos. There are usually several dive boats in the same vicinity, so everybody is
aware of the presence of divers and snorkelers. The water is very calm in most areas, with only a couple of
tricky currents, and it is crystal clear on most days.
Moderate amount of fish near the coral reef makes for decent underwater photo opportunities. You can see
flounder, parrot fish, grouper, porcupine and dozens of other varieties.
You can easily snorkel from the beach to the reefs. Taking a tour allows you to reach reefs further out and to
focus on having a good time in the water, as your valuables are guarded.
Sosua is close enough to Puerto Plata to enjoy all its attractions. Visit the Amber Museum, take the cable
car ride up to the Botanical Gardens atop Isabela de Torres Mountain. Take a tour of the rum factory with
free samples and an option to buy quality rum. Spend the morning at the Columbus Water Park with its many
slides and pools. Spend the afternoon at the Go Kart/Bumper Car park that is open all night. These two
parks are just a 15-minute drive from Sosua.
