Sosua, home to one of the finest white soft sand beaches on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. At the 1938 Evian Conference Rafael Trujillo offered to accept up to 100,000 Jewish refugees; about 800 German and Austrian Jewish refugees received visas by the Dominican government between 1940 and 1945and settled in Sosua.
The government provided them with land and resources with which they created a dairy and cheese factory, named Productos Sosúa, still in existence today. Descendants of the original settlers still live in Sosua, where they maintain a synagogue and a museum. The town was little known until tourism took off in the island in the mid 80's..
Activities in the area include diving, snorkeling, numerous other water sports as well as numerous day trips out to the country for hiking, bike trails etc.
Why do people choose to settle in Sosua? With numerous supermarkets, banks, pharmacies, restaurants, private schools (e.g. International School of Sosua and Garden Kids) and all the necessities for day to day living, the town lends itself well to practical day to day living.
