Although secluded, Tropix is within easy walking distance to Sosua's restaurants and shops. It also serves as a convenient starting point to those wishing to tour the beautiful Dominican countryside. The staff is always happy to help plan day trips, nights on the town, and week-end excursions.
Celebrating it's 30th Anniversary, Tropix was built by Sylvie Papernik and her father, Otto. Cory joined her in 1987 to help make it what it is today.
Sylvie's parents were among the 700 refugees who settled in Sosua when it was established as a safe haven for Jewish refugees escaping Nazi persecution during World War II. Her family moved to the United States when she was 9. After years of living and working in the U.S. and Europe, Sylvie returned to the Dominican Republic in 1980 and began Tropix, now beloved by the many who have found her throughout the years.
Tropix has always prided itself on being a place where everyone can feel at home and safe which is why Tropix does not allow unregistered guests into the rooms. It's longevity in the ever-changing tourist market and a staff who has been there since its inception are testaments to the very special place that is Tropix .
At Tropix, we do everything we can to ensure that our guests' stay is one that will make them want to return again and again. We look forward to your visit!
