Caribe Campo is a Condominium Complex in the heart of a tropical jungle paradise on the north shore of the Dominican Republic in the small town (population 70,000) of Sosua, in the Province of Puerto Plata, just 4 miles from the Puerto Plata International Airport, and 15 minutes from Cabarete, the windsurf capital of the Caribbean.
Caribe Campo Apartment Hotel was built in 1990 as the largest luxury resort hotel in the area, at a time when the Dominican Republic was becoming a popular vacation destination for tourists from Europe and North America, and travel agencies were offering all-inclusive travel.
Originally it consisted of three separate Hotel Apartment Resorts, Terraza Tropimar, Residencial Tropimar and Villas Tropimar, but under the head name of Caribe Campo Club.
It was a place with restaurants and a discotheque, and people loved to party, but gradually, starting in 2003, it converted to condominium apartments, and is now occupied mainly by long-term owners and renters who prefer a serene, peaceful and quiet home, away from the rat race of modern day living.
With that conversion came a name change to Terraza Tropimar or TT for short. This is now its official name, but most people still refer to it as Caribe Campo.
Our huge pool with beautiful fountain is set in the heart of well-manicured, lush tropical gardens; home to coconut palm, banana, avocado, lime, and pomegranate trees, and flowering hedges that will escort you to your own little piece of heaven.
Sosua Beach, just a 5 minute moto-concho ride, or 15 - 20 minute walk, is known for it's pristine waters in a sheltered bay. With its many species of fish and coral reefs, it is perfect for swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling and deep sea fishing. You will also find wonderful souvenirs from the numerous vendors who are willing to dicker with you for the best price.
There are several other beaches including Paradise Beach, Playa Imbert and Playa Chiquita, but possibly the most interesting is Playa Alicia, aka Playa Sin Salida, or Waterfront Beach. It is known as Miracle Beach or New Beach by the locals, because it appeared, seemingly from nowhere, during a storm over the Easter weekend of 2003. (The picture at the top of this page is Playa Alicia. See a computer recreation of the event in the Photo Galleries.)
This beach is sometimes confused with Casa Marina Beach because of its close proximity to Casa Marina Reef Beach Resort, but it is actually a separate beach, just down the shoreline from the hotel.
The bay had once been home to sharks when a slaughterhouse used it for a dumping ground, but now, white sand, brought in by ocean currents, continues to enlarge the beach every year for the pleasure of all to enjoy.
