The history of Sosua begins in 1938 when the Dominican government accorded visas to Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi persecution. In 1939, the newly founded Dominican Republic Settlement Association (DORSA) acquired the land held by the United Fruit Company in the north of the country and in 1940 the first refugees arrived and settled on that land, followed by many others in the next few years. After 1945 many left the island for the United States, Mexico or Europe but some remained and prospered. Modern day Sosua is a quaint little town steeped in history and a mixture of different cultures whose roots are still evident in the Jewish community which includes members of the original refugee families, a synagogue and museum. Sosua is the Acapulco of the Dominican Republic. You could say that this is where tourism first began back in the 70s and 80s. Despite development, Sosua still keeps its charm with the highest density of shops and restaurants in the Batey section of the destination. Foreigners who originally came for a beach holiday have now established their own ex-patriot communities and businesses. There are large numbers of Germans, Austrians, Canadians, Russians and Americans who live here year round. The one kilometer long Sosua Beach continues to be the main attraction of the area. In spite of the large number of vendors who have set up shop right on the beach, it's still one of the most spectacular in the Dominican Republic. Sosua was originally settled by around 600 Jewish refugees fleeing the Second World War who set up a dairy community. As a result, Sosua began to thrive and was soon discovered by the wealthy from nearby Puerto Plata, Santiago and San Francisco de Macoris who came and set up vacation homes. Most of the original Jewish settlers have moved on, but the dairy that produces the Productos Sosua continues to this day. The Sosua Synagogue has a museum with photos and memorabilia of the first Jewish settlers. You can also attend services there. Tourism took off in the 70s and 80s, with the sleepy beach town catering to thousands of day trippers from Playa Dorada resort and to overnighters staying in the many small hotels such as, that sprang up in Sosua. The town built a reputation for its night life. It is said that Sosua wakes up when Puerto Plata and Playa Dorada go to bed.
