SosĂșa is a small town in the Puerto Plata province of the Dominican Republic. Located approximately 4 miles from the Puerto Plata International Airport (POP), the town is accessed primarily by Camino Cinco, or Highway 5, which runs much of the length of the country's North coastline. The town is divided into three sectors: El Batey, which is the main section where most tourists visit, Sosua Abajo, and Los Charamicos.

El Batey was the settlement area of approximately 500 of the 5,000 German and Austrian Jewish refugees for whom the Dominican government issued visas between 1940 and 1945 (see Dominican Jews). The government provided them with land and resources with which they created a dairy and cheese factory, named Productos Sosua, still in existence today. Descendants of the original settlers still live in Sosua, where they maintain a synagogue and a museum.

Sosua BaySosua Abajo, which translates roughly to "Lower Sosua", is located on the West end of Sosua in a valley near a river that dumps into Sosua Bay. It is a less commercial, more rural area of Sosua, and houses many of the workers who commute to the El Batey area, nearby Cabarete Bay and Playa Dorada.

The Barrio of Los Charamicos is situated between El Batey and Abajo, and is a densely populated urban area known for its nightlife, dancing, and bar scene.

The North Coast of the Dominican Republic has been a top tourist destination for Europeans for nearly three decades. There is a very large expatriate community in Sosua, which consists of mostly German, English, American, and Canadian expats.
