Guam is the part of the U.S.A. you may never have heard of. That's because this little 30-mile-long speck of an island in Micronesia is marooned in a wide swath of the Pacific Ocean—Tokyo and Manila, two of the largest nearby cities. Guam: an island with a rich culture, a contentious and diverse colonial history and absolutely stunning vistas. In many ways, Guam seems like a wonderfully unique contradiction. It's a remote island and an international melting pot; it's an American territory, and the gateway to Asia; it's home to an intensely local culture, but it's filled with outsiders. And to top it all off, it's just beautiful. Guam enjoys a tropical marine climate: generally warm and humid, moderated by northeast trade winds. The dry season runs from January to June, the rainy season from July to December, though with little seasonal temperature variation.
