Guam is a beautiful island territory in Micronesia, in the Western Pacific. It is distinguished by its tropical beaches, Chamorro villages and ancient latte stones (stone pillars). In short this pacific pearl is the perfect family getaway, especially for children who would love to explore the various offerings that this tiny heaven would offer.
Having children along with you on your vacation means that the tourist spots that you choose need to cater to their liking as well, and when it comes to children, what better than a Zoo & an Aquarium. Cushing Zoo and Underwater world are two of the attractions that would excite your children. Situated in Tumon Bay, the Zoo is a good experience for the children whereas the Aquarium provides a great education about marine life. The Aquarium is a really exciting place to be, not only for the children but also for the adults.
Basically, the Underwater World aquarium is divided into three: The first is a mangrove section that shows Guam’s land animals. The second section is the main aquarium with a tunnel that allows you to walk underneath the fish. This is a tremendously exciting place as it allows you to see the sharks and turtles swimming above you. The tunnel also has benches where you can sit and enjoy the spectacle. The third section has smaller tanks that show all the fish, crab, and jellyfish that can’t be held in the main tank.
Another absolutely great adventure, although meant for adults, is the Diving with the Sharks, especially if you want to get into the water and get adventurous. There is also a shark feeding activity, a really enjoyable act. And when you are there, there are the best hotels in Guam that will take care of you and your family so well, you will want to come back again and again.
