To start it all off, this list wouldn’t be complete without the 5-star Encore! Guam Magic Show.
Families that came to visit are so happy with their experience because of how up-close and personal the shows are, that they leave the theater with big smiles.
You can skip the line and watch the Comedy and Magic Show with our All-Star cast to bring you Guam’s Best.
2. PAGAT CAVE
If you’re big on adventures and miss the great, wild outdoors, you can take a quick hike to Pagat Cave.
According to visitors, if you’re looking for a day trip that’s super fun, this is a great idea. It’s an easy hike that can get hot and humid, but a dip into the underground pond is sure to cool you down afterwards.
If you love extreme activities, you can try cliff jumping, or take it easy by just enjoying the cliffside view.
3. LATTE STONE PARK
Surround yourself in early Chamorro culture and go for a walk at the Latte Stone Park.
These stones are symbols of Guam where limestone pillars used by the Chamarro people as foundations for their homes as far back as 500 A.D. You can also catch a glimpse of the Japanese tunnels.
This place is one of the lesser known tourist attractions, so you may appreciate the lack of large crowds, if you prefer to maintain social distance even after the pandemic.
4. GUAM MUSEUM
If you’re looking for an even deeper immersion, visit the Guam Museum to explore the history of Guam, which also depicts the culture through its artifacts, handicraft and photograph collection.
While absorbing historical information, you also keep yourself entertained through the spacious exhibits and interaction with museum guides.
You can spend a good 1-2 hours if you want a city trip or a day out with loved ones. It’s also a big plus that this place is very Instagrammable.
5. SKYDIVE GUAM
Back to adrenaline activities, perhaps something everyone should try at least once or add to their bucket list would be Skydive Guam.
From start to finish, you’ll be taught everything you need before the flight. You’re given different levels of jump but most skydivers will recommend that you take the highest leap of 14,000 ft. because this will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most people.
You’ll have jump partners who will take great photos and videos of you mid-air to capture the moment. Their tandem masters are also multilingual for international tourists who want to give skydiving a go.
6. CUSHING ZOO
For animal lovers, Cushing Zoo in Tumon features a large number of species. In the wildlife preserves, you can see rare creatures that were rescued from poachers and hunters.
It’s a small zoo with a rich story behind it, while it may be expensive compared to larger zoos, their proceeds go entirely to animal care.
If you wish to support local organizations like Cushing Zoo, you should definitely give this place a visit.
7. UNDERWATER WORLD
If you want to go underwater without getting wet, well, Underwater World is for you!
You can bring your family to explore this aquatic zoo and learn about Guam’s historical waters.
Perfect for cooling down on a hot and rainy day on the island, but still with a touch of adventure for the family.
The New Normal will soon allow us to go on adventures outside our homes, so make the most out of it!
