Guam Safety Tips
- Purse snatching and theft of personal property can happen anywhere including Guam. Keep your belongings close at all times.
- Avoid leaving bags in rental cars. Place all personal items in in the trunk and not in view.
- Look left crossing roads. Cross only at crosswalks and follow the signal. Cars may not yield to pedestrians and turn right on red.
- Please do not leave your child unattended, especially at crosswalks.
- Guam nightclubs can admit guests starting from 18 years old but the drinking age for alcohol is 21. Please bring a photo ID with proof of age.
