“Travels to a Different Time” : September 1988: Sosua, Dominican Republic: Sosua’s Famous Beach

The beach is highly recommended by a few gringos I have encountered. It is home to too many vendors hawking trinkets of coral, amber and onyx not to mention all sorts of food, beer and cheap mass-produced junk. Express any sort of interest in anything and you are immediately besieged by corny lines such as “Name your price, wholesale liquidation prices. Best prices in town.” Most are not willing to bargain. The beach touted by so many as fantastic is mediocre and the sand is not clean littered with garbage and seaweed. Our hotel beach is tiny in comparison but superior.
