An Expat Talks about Living in Sosua, Dominican Rep

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Sosua

How long have you lived there?

2 years plus 1/2 time for 4 years

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?

First thing I do in any place is look for the Expat hangouts and sit and chat. I also look for a country/area specific website to make acquaintances. Works for me and I now have parties on 4th of July, US Thanksgiving and Easter Sunday to gather all the expats I can. I get from 125 to 175 people at my events 3 times a year.

Great place for networking and making friends and getting to know your new country.

Whether you need primary care or complex surgery, you'll have access to the best hospitals & doctors available.
