Part population suffers from low season
Until November, it is still low season in Sosúa. And only at Christmas time the hotels will be full of tourists. For many small business owners with a gift shop, painting workshop, a small bar or restaurant life is tough now.
As they told us that many entrepreneurs haven’t sold anything for the last three or four months. Many business owners had to close their business because they could no longer afford the rent. With loans and groceries on credit at the Colmado (small grocery shop) people try to survive these difficult times. In La Unión, Villa Liberación, Charamicos and Sosúa Abajo, many residents can’t pay the electricity bill and are left in the dark. Anyone who has something, shares it with the neighbors. So here an appeal to the few tourists who currently visit Sosúa: buy some souvenirs at the shops. The people here need it more than ever.
