Valley of the Latte Jungle Riverboat Adventure Cruise

49 reviews
Delve deeper into Guam’s jungle and Chamorro heritage than you could independently on this riverboat tour. Cruise the River Talofofo and River Ugum; experience local flora and fauna; and visit a Chamorro village to see craft demos, “latte” pillar stones, and caves. Prebook to save vacation time and secure a place on the cruise departure—either with or without lunch—that best suits you, with hotel transfers as an option.

A small historical park with monument, Magellan is a very popular figure in neighboring Philippines as he was a pioneer of the country. Worth sitting and relaxing at this location. Couple of Snaps to add to the collection

Passing on unproven information is like saying McDonald's is a great bbq place. Generally speaking, due to routes, Magellan landing in Umatac is reasonably incorrect or all but false. It's great locale and area. Beautiful people and place, but the great oppressor most likely landed further north.

Megellan found Guam. And Spain, American, even Japanese tried to invade this peaceful island. This is the very place where Magellan landed and began all the times of war, and recently, travel. I may have many things to thank the guy though. I like it here.

While there is now some debate as to whether or not this is the actual landing site, it is nonetheless worth seeing. It is not disputed that this bay was a vital link in the Spanish empire as vessels stopped here to water on their way to the Philippines or Mexico. Definitely worth a stop.
