Gr8 Travel Tips Photo Den - Sosua Beach

Sosua Beach is the first destination my wife and I traveled to in the Caribbean, way back in 1987. 

This area and the island at that time, was still mostly unknown to most travelers. But today, with the huge expansion of the now very popular resort destination of 🏖 Punta Cana, it is now a world renowned 🏖 tropical vacation destination.

Unfortunately, Sosua is definitely not as popular today as it used to be, and has become an area frequented by child sexual predators. You can learn more about this disturbing problem that has been and still is taking place in Sosua below.

Update 2019:


Back in 2019, I watched an episode of W5 here in Canada, a similar investigative reporting television program to that of; ⏰ 60 Minutes in the United States. It outlined a very disturbing investigation into the child sex industry in Sosua.

It appears this area in the Dominican Republic, has become the number one destination for child sex offenders in the world.

I do hope the government can do something about this in the very near future. We traveled to this part of the Domincan Republic many years ago, before renowned beach resort destination {Punta Cana} was established.

At that time, it was beautiful!

As you can see in the 📸 photo I captured at that time {shown above}, Sosua Bay and the its main beach was amazing. My wife and I have such fond memories of taking our first vacation together there years ago.

It is such a shame to see it become what it is today.

To learn more, I’ve included a website link to a 📰 CTV News article featuring this serious problem that’s occurring in the region.
