The island of Guam is really a tale of two lifestyles. Here you'll find lavish resorts, beaches like the popular but relaxing Alupang Beach Club, and plenty of opportunities to go diving or jet skiing. Of course, experiencing lavish malls and beaches can be fun, but others may want to get out of the tourist complex.
In the smaller nearby capital of Guam, Hagatna, you'll find the Government House, which provides terrific vistas, and valuable information on the indigenous Chamorro people. Hagatna is also home to the Chamorro Village market, which hosts a lively night market on Wednesdays and Fridays where you can find huge coconut crabs.
If you want to experience Guam's natural abundance, then you can certainly go for hikes on the south of the island. Gorgeous waterfalls, pastoral foothills, and lush jungles are just a few of the things you can expect to find.
Tourists who fly into Antonio B. Won Pat International Airport (GUM) can make their way to their destination via taxi or car rental. If you have a rental, however, you can explore the entire island in only a couple of days.
Hints and Tips
The average low in Guam is only about 76 degrees, although you can expect a fair amount of rain from July to October.
