The village of Sosua is located in the Northern section of the magnificent island in the Caribbean and only four miles from the major city of Puerto Plata.
Sosua Bay Beach In The Domincan Republic
Beautiful Sosua Beach in the Dominican Republic
Sosua Beach is the first destination my wife and I traveled to in the Caribbean back in 1987. The area was still mostly unknown to most back then and today, with the huge expansion of the now very popular resort destination of Punta Cana on the island.
The area is definitely not as popular today as it used to be, and unfortunately has become an area frequented by child sexual predators. Learn more about this disturbing problem now taking place in Sosua below.
I recently watched an episode of W5 here in Canada, a similar investigative reporting television program to 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 Punta Cana was established and it was beautiful. 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 presently occurring in the region.
I’ve also listed the Official Dominican Republic Tourism link below to their website page for your convenience. It’s filled with excellent information on everything this beautiful island in the Caribbean has to offer.
