Gain More Background About the Country

History:

"While geographically, Guam is among the Mariana Islands, so named by Spanish missionaries in 1668, it is a separate U.S. territory from the Northern Mariana Islands, which is technically a commonwealth. It’s “American soil,” but the residents do not have full American citizenship, and cannot vote in presidential elections. They have a non-voting representative to Congress."

Fun Facts and Trivia:

"As per a study, the coral cover on Guam declined from 19 percent to 10 percent from 2003 to 2011. The coral reefs are estimated to be responsible for providing more than $20 million to Guam’s economy."

Customs and Culture:

"The U.S. Navy and Air Force occupy one-third of the land and account for approximately 20 percent of the population. An air force base, a naval base, and a naval communications center form the largest concentration of military resources on the island."

What to Pack: "Guam can get very hot in the summer season. However, because of its tropical climate, you should still expect warm showers. The weather can be quite unpredictable so if you want to enjoy your break no matter what, it’s a good idea to pack layers. You’ll want a lightweight waterproof jacket and waterproof shoes at least. Light layers will allow you to stay cool and dry while exploring and enjoying the great scenery Guam has to offer."
