Where to buy a SIM card? POP airport or the strip?
« on: October 18, 2018, 10:55:59 AM »
Hola amigos,

I will be landing in Sosua next month and wanted to buy a local SIM card. I read somewhere that Claro is the best. Where can I buy a Claro SIM card? Is it available at the airport-POP? Are there any stores on the strip or near the playa sosua where I can buy a local SIM card?

Your advice is much appreciated.

Muchas gracias,

pecos

The Playero supermart, they have a claro and altice spot in there as soon as you walk in on the left.

I've had the same sim card for two years...I just top it up like $500 pesos at any colmado or top up machine  then get someone to put on 5 days unlimited data on it.

FYI, sometimes they dont have the right size or capability to set up the card (very rare but has happened on a trip or 2)

You can go directly to the Altice store in the plaza right next to banco popular...
Also make sure to bring your passport. I"ve had my account for years(from when it was Orange), so dont worry...its a one time thing.
The card last anywhere from 3-6 months if you top it up to keep it active.
