Most people get around Sosua using taxis or scooters. Taxis are the safer option (especially when getting around at night) but you can rent a scooter to get around the town for a reasonable price.
Renting a scooter costs $20 per day and you only need to leave a photocopy of your passport for security measures. Some companies require that you leave your passport but they will return it once you bring their scooter back without any damages.

Of course, most men visit Sosua for the girls and nightlife but you can try out these activities during the day for a more well rounded trip:
- 4 Wheeled Drive
- Scuba Diving

What Are Sosua Girls Like?
Sosua girls are mostly black Dominican girls from the DR and Haiti who come from other cities to meet foreign men for companionship and/or relationships.
Many girls are poor and come to Sosua looking for a foreign man to help take care of them because jobs are scarce in the DR.
You’ll also find girls from other countries like Venezulea as well so it’s a big plus if you’re into South American ladies.
Word on the street is Sosua girls prefer Black American men although a lot of white men visit the town and end up spending their trip with Haitian girls.
Their dream is to meet a foreign black man and have a baby because it’s a ticket to a better life and more opportunity.
Some women are looking for foreign husbands and quite a few brothas end up marrying a Dominican girl and starting a family.
If you’re mature and looking for something long term, the DR is one of the best places to find a beautiful younger wife.

Safety Tips & Words of Advice
- Leave the Matrix BS at the airport – Apparently, more Americans are coming to DR and ruining the scene for long time veterans. Avoid stupid stuff like making it rain in the club, wearing lots of expensive jewelry and acting a fool. Black men come to the DR to get away from all the destructive American behavior. Please respect the country and behave yourself, fellas!
- Learn Spanish – Many Sosua girls speak English but learning Spanish will give you a more authentic experience and prepare you for other countries like Panama, Costa Rica, and Colombia. Easy Spanish Step by Step is the most purchased Spanish learning book on this site and we also recommend courses like Pimsleur and Rosetta Stone.
- Be careful who you associate with – There’s been a recent string of unexplained deaths in the DR throughout 2019, including a Black American tourist who was found dead in Sosua. The DR is a poor country and many people want to take advantage of Americans who have more money. Always be careful who you trust and associate with. Trust your gut feeling and don’t be afraid to only hang out with other foreigners to keep yourself safe at all times.
