It is about a 20-minute walk into Sosua and a taxi trip is about $1.75. The road is in terrible shape with huge potholes. The taxi must swerve or stop and bypass these craters. There are what seems to be a few middle-class homes and also some villas on the road but almost all lower levels have steel bars on the windows and there are security guards outside some of the homes and many signs warning of guard dogs. There are horses and cows on the road not to mention chickens! There are few cars on the road but mostly mopeds and minibuses. There is a huge amount of construction. Looks as if tourism is getting into gear.
