We Canadians consider ourselves a hearty people, however,repparttar 139419 2003 winter was excessively bitter cold and endless. By February we had had enough and were ready to trade in our winter boots for a pair of sandals.

Travel ads forrepparttar 139420 Caribbean beckoned us south likerepparttar 139421 Siren's called to Odysseus. One by one our colleagues seemed to disappear for a week then reappear sporting tans and relaxed smiles. Feeling left out, a person can crack underrepparttar 139422 pressure andrepparttar 139423 decision is made. South or bust!!!

I walked into my kitchen and yelled at nobody in particular, "I'm officially sick of winter!", I emailed my editor and suggested he plan a trip south to write a golf article. He jealously obliged and my travel companion and I soon began planning a golf/relaxation trip torepparttar 139424 Dominican Republic, to write about two new Hilton properties (Marien Coral by Hilton andrepparttar 139425 Costa Caribe Coral by Hilton) andrepparttar 139426 Guavaberry Golf Resort. Our departure date couldn't arrive too soon! The Dominican Republic is a well-known favorite destination of Canadians from Newfoundland to British Columbia. It isrepparttar 139427 second largest island inrepparttar 139428 Caribbean, with a population of eight million and a landmass of 48, 442 square kilometers. The island offers something for everyone - seductive sunsets,repparttar 139429 highest mountains inrepparttar 139430 Caribbean, rolling landscapes, villas, busy cities, and over 1,500 kilometers of gorgeous beaches. The island is actually entitled (Hispa˝iola) and hosts two countries: Haiti andrepparttar 139431 Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic is located onrepparttar 139432 east side ofrepparttar 139433 island and is surrounded byrepparttar 139434 Atlantic Ocean andrepparttar 139435 Caribbean Sea.

My traveling companion, Kevin, an avid bogey golfer like myself, and I, flew into Puerto Plata, located onrepparttar 139436 northern tip ofrepparttar 139437 island. We were looking forward to experiencing and writing about two hotels recently acquired by Hilton andrepparttar 139438 Guavaberry golf course.

Prior to departing we consideredrepparttar 139439 best method of getting aroundrepparttar 139440 island. We obtained maps; we inquired about car rates and researched public transportation and hotel shuttle services. Inrepparttar 139441 end we were undecided and concluded that this was one item we could arrange upon arrival. We have driven in many places including: London, England; Athens, Greece; Germany and even Montreal. Heck, if you can drive in Montreal without an insurance claim, you can drive anywhere, right? As a result, we opted to a rent a car to get us aroundrepparttar 139442 island. Figuring we're both careful and confident drivers and competent navigators, we didn't anticipate too many problems.

Our arrival inrepparttar 139443 Dominican was a pleasant and swift custom's experience and we quickly found ourselves outsiderepparttar 139444 quaint airport watchingrepparttar 139445 taxis and buses come and go, and allrepparttar 139446 other tourists boarding their all-inclusive package shuttles.
