Indigenous, Spanish colonial, and American influences are all visible during a vacation in Guam, a Pacific island that forms part of the Mariana Archipelago. First settled by the indigenous Chamorro people centuries ago, the island was "discovered" by Ferdinand Magellan in 1521-- Spanish colonial powers eventually settled the island in 1668. Today the island is a U.S. territory, with many mainland U.S. citizens choosing to visit Guam as a visa-free way to enjoy the Pacific. Tourism in Guam focuses heavily on the island's picturesque beaches, extensive diving opportunities, and indigenous culture and history.

Islands · Caves · Nature & Parks
An archipelago of 15 islands north of Guam, Northern Mariana Islands remains best known for its tropical weather, excellent scuba diving, and sobering historical reminders of World War II. Originally settled by the Chamorro people, the seemingly remote archipelago has endured a surprisingly turbulent history thanks to its strategic location in the South Pacific. Ferdinand Magellan landed in 1521 and claimed the islands for the Spanish, but since then the archipelago came under successive German, Japanese, and finally U.S. rule. A holiday in Northern Mariana Islands typically involves lazing on pristine beaches, enjoying succulent tropical fruits, and scuba diving among the many impressive offshore shipwrecks.
