Introduction : Guam


The tropical island of Guam is located in the Australia and Oceana Continent, measuring 212mi², each square mile overflowing with natural beauty and cultural treasures. Guam is an unincorporated United States Territory that floats in the middle of the North Pacific Ocean. Due to its location, in regards to the international date line, it is literally “where America’s day begins”. It is the nearest land mass to the Mariana’s trench, offering majestical views above and below sea level.


It is assumed that Ferdinand Magellan was one of the first to land on Guam in the 1500s. However, Spain did not officially claim and conquer the territory until the 17th century. As a result from the historical Spanish-American War, the island of Guam was officially passed under U.S rule in 1898. Any inhabitants are American citizens by birth; the population includes an “indigenous mix of Chamorro descendants and other Austronesian peoples of Indonesia, the Philippines, and Taiwan”. Today, it stands as a strategic military and economic connector between Asia and the U.S. The island is sprinkled with preserved historical landmarks, providing many sights of interest to both locals and visitors.


Guam houses tropical warmth year round; you can expect temperatures between 85-90°F in the day and nightly temperatures between 75-78°F. Both rainfall and sunshine are abundant. The rainiest period lies between July and November, while January through April present a drier climate. Guam averages 80 inches of rainfall per year, with a “typhoon season” bringing heavy rain and strong winds from August to November. The peak season for the arrival of tourists is February to April. However, the sea remains warm year-round; attracting a constant flow of visitors. Tourists can pack prepared with light clothing articles to enjoy a sunny, breezy trip with a constant chance of refreshing rain.


Guam’s warm hospitality attracts tourists from across the globe. It is deemed the “jewel” of the Mariana Islands and encompasses an atmosphere of peaceful views intertwined with thriving cultural destinations. From the north to the south, tourists can expect an array of breathtaking sites; everything from white sandy beaches, coral reefs, crystal waters, and hidden caverns to tropical jungles. Averaging 1.5 million visitors per year, travelers are drawn to the balance of peace and relaxation combined with adventurous opportunity. Immerse yourself in the resilient culture of the locals by participating in the many festivals and village celebrations. Reach new heights and climb Mount Lamlam, “technically the world’s largest mountain”… although most of it lies hidden beneath water. Reach new depths, exploring the underwater life via diving and snorkeling excursions. Please the whole family with activities ranging water parks, dolphin watching, boat tours and waterfall hiking. Grab a book and soak in the ocean mist, with a wide selection of secluded beaches. Hit the shops and immerse yourself in an island cuisine extravaganza, locals are well aware that the way to one’s heart is a beautifully plated meal. Stroll through the evening markets or put on your dancing shoes. If you are seeking night life, Tumon is the place to be. Clubs and bars featuring live music will be the perfect end to your day. Get ready to spend your U.S. dollars, Guam is a duty-free port so take advantage of zero sales tax! A typical length of stay ranges anywhere from 5 to 10 days, but beware as the island’s hospitality makes it difficult for any tourist to depart.

If you do not mind an older car, local companies also provide significantly cheaper rates. According to The Guam Guide; “The Government-run Guam Mass Transit Authority (GMTA) currently operates buses on nine various routes, connecting nearly all of the villages of the island”. (The Guam Guide, 2020)
