i'm new to the forum but not to the dr. I went to the dr in april of last year with 3 other guys and we stayed at the sosua bay resort. This was an all inclusive resort and it was great! We used to get back from after one around 4am and go to the cafeteria and the chef would make us marinated chicken breast and potatoes. Off the hook!
We are heading back there from april 1-6 and can't wait. This time we are planning to go to santiago on the weekend, which is an hour away. Can you shed some light on santiago. We heard the clubs and women in santiago are ridiculous!

If you're going for the clubs, clearly you're not thinking of just a day trip, which wouldn't make much sense. The kicker here is Santiago isn't super lively during the week, so the best time to go there is Friday-Saturday, which of course is the best time to be in Sosua as well.
Santiago is not a tourist town (although there are great things to see). There are a few good hotels. I've stayed at Aloha Sol, which is nice. Heard good things about Gran Almirante as well.
Pretty women - are quite literally everywhere. But you'd better have a very, very good handle on your espanol, if you're interested in anything remotely close to regular girls (no, "I have a friend who speaks spanish" isn't good enough.) Otherwise, best to stick to the red lights on the North Coast.
Good luck, have fun, and be safe,
Thanks a lot for the advice. None of us speak spanish but I understand it very well. However, that may not be enough. We planned to go to Santiago on Friday or Saturday. We heard about Club Ambis and La Pasion. We also heard that more of the locals (not prostitutes) could be found there. If you don't suggest it, being we're not from the DR, then I will take your advice. Last year, we managed to go to Caberete and it definitely reminded me of my college spring break years. There were a lot of young people. We didn't go during the day, we went at night. The younger crowd turns me off, being that the average age of all of us going is 35.
So I guess we're looking for an older crowd.
You will have no problem @ Passions in Santiago, just bring lotsa Pesos for the Salida... you have about a 1% chance meeting "normal" Santiaguerras with your level of Spanish.
Stick with Sosua on the weekends, and you won't need Spanish to meet a nice Santiaguerra "Med student" looking for help with tuition!
In US Dollars is that about $150.00. What's the going rate for dominican pesos. Last August, it was 32.54. How far of a drive would you say is it from Sosua to Santiago. I keep getting conflicting information. I heard it's better to go there on a friday or saturday afternoon, book a room for the night, go out to the clubs, stay there overnight and then get a cab to go back to Sosua in the morning.
35.40RD = USD
It is an hour & 20 minute drive with no traffic from Sosua.
Amigo...you are wasting your time in Santiago without a command of the language, trust me. Everything you are shopping for is available locally!
I am sure AZB, our resident STI Macdaddy will confirm this.
I appreciate it.
April 1st couldn't come any sooner
Should be an interesting group to hang out with, I should be there on the 2nd also till the 9th.
