Souvenirs sellers complain about decline of tourism
In the program of Ola TV (local TV) sellers of souvenirs complain about the fact that tourism on the north coast and particularly in Sosúa and Cabarete has declined substantially in recent years. The entrepreneurs Álvaro Antonio Peña, Luis Alberto Martínez and Luis Báez believe that not only the global economic crisis can be designated as a cause of the decline.
The facilities of the northern coast for the tourist are outdated and no longer attractive. Most of the hotels no longer meet the standards of the tourists today, according to the souvenir sellers. But besides a beautiful bay with a beautiful beach, Sosúa has not much more to offer to the tourist. For example, no promenade where tourists can shop and have a nice evening dinner in a restaurants without motorcycle and car noise and exhaust fumes. The closure of the main street Pedro Clisante for traffic apparently doesn’t seem to succeed. But the entrepreneurs hope that the government will live up to their plans to improve Sosúa in 2013. The promises of the government for 2013 have already been made.
