Layover Guide’s Suggestions Of Things To Do On A Guam Layover:

Latte Stone Park
Located in central Hagatna are the Latte Stones. The stones are actually pillars dating back to 500 A.D. on which ancient Chamorro houses were constructed. They aren’t found anywhere else in the world, and have become a signature of Guam

Two Lovers Point
Considered to be a place where, during the Spanish rule, two star-crossed lovers leapt to their death, today there is the Two Lovers Point Park and observation platform over the dramatic cliff that offers breathtaking views of the ocean and Tumon Bay.

Underwater World
Underwater World is a large aquarium located next to Sam Choy’s in Tumon. The complex offers a 7′ wide by 7′ tall tunnel in 10 feet of water, and three floors of exhibits you will find a large variety of marine. Audio tours are available, and the tour lasts from 45 minutes to 1½ hour. Admission fees are $22 for adult and $14 for children under 12.
