What to do in Guam
The capital Agana offers several places of interest, such as the ruins of the Casa Gobierno, the historical museum of Guam, the Statue of Liberty in miniature, the Cathedral of Dulce Number of Maria, the Spanish Steps, and especially the Latte Park, where are the stone pillars on which the Chamarros once built their houses, and which are symbols of the island, with their form of mushroom.
There are six historic parks dedicated to the events that took place on the island during the Second World War: the most interesting being those of Asan and Agat.
Take the Atlantis Guam, a submarine on which you can observe the wrecks of ships, 150 m deep, as well as the coral reefs.
If you dive in Apra Harbor, you will discover a reef where the wrecks of planes and boats accumulate, testimony of the fighting between American and Japanese during the Second World War.
Many natural sites are worth a visit: the lagoon with its turquoise waters and the beautiful beaches of Cocos Island, the falls of Sigua or those of Tarzan in the heart of the jungle (to be discovered with a guide), the Talofofo falls south of the Mount Jumullong Manglo, the highest point of the island (410 m), the cave of Gadao with its petroglyphs which date from 500 years BC
As for the Chamorro culture, you can attend village festivals and visit Inarajan on the south-west coast with its typical bamboo houses with thatched roofs, where demonstrations of crafts, weaving and weaving are held, but Also making jewelry and belts with shells and shells of turtles.
Do not miss the night market of Chamorro.
Guam : The basics
A visa is not required for a stay of less than 90 days, but you must have a valid passport 6 months after the return date, a return ticket and an application for admission (same conditions as in the USA).
The current currency is the US dollar (USD).
To reach Guam, an international airport is 5 km from the capital Agana, which can be reached by bus or taxi.
Travel within the island is done by bus (schedules and routes rather anarchic), or by taxi. You can also rent a car if you can afford it, or a bicycle (in Tumon).
Accommodation: You can easily find a hotel out of the Japanese holidays, but the rates are quite expensive: about 100 € for a double room in an average hotel. It is now possible to rent rooms or apartments in private homes, such as Airbnb, which is more affordable.
Health: There is no particular health problem, but as always it is prudent to have up to date universal vaccinations, even if they are not required.
Security: nothing to report.
Shopping: The duty-free status of Guam makes it a privileged place for shopping, which the Japanese appreciate very much! But it will probably be more judicious to bring back picturesque craft items instead of watches or hi-fi equipment, such as baskets, carpets, coconut leaf hats, banana or hibiscus fiber skirts, Tortoiseshell combs ...
