Guam Overview

The island of Guam, the largest in the chain of Marianas islands in the western Pacific, is about three-quarters of the way between Hawaii and the Philippines in Oceania. The Marianas Trench, the deepest part of the ocean in the world, is in Guam’s own backyard along with several Spanish wrecks, one of which is reported to contain a sizeable treasure. (The Government of Guam has a claim to it.)

The island relies heavily on tourism (mostly it's neighboring asian countries - like Japan). As with many islands, there are a huge variety of water sports available to residents and tourists alike. World class hotels, beach clubs, golf courses, and Polynesian dinner shows are a major attraction for tourists to the area, along with its duty free status.

Guam’s average temperature is 80F (28C) and the climate is very humid. However, many (if not all) of the buildings contain air conditioning. It is easy to get around Guam as it is only about 30 miles long and 8 miles wide.

Although an island, Guam is very much a cosmopolitan community and many U.S. mainland products can be found there. Guam is a U.S. territory so the currency is american dollars. The native people are Chamorros, however the island is a melting pot of diverse ethnicities. The official languages spoken are Chamorro and English.
