Worth a visit for all those interested in learning about the culture. The village is along a beautiful black sand beach. The lunch is a must, well priced with huge portions.

The president of Discover Guam Tours personally coordinated our local fiesta lunch accompanied by a Chamorro dance performance by... More

The Gef Pa'go Cultural Village is not a tourist trap. We found that the people there genuinely try to preserve and pass on the knowledge and traditions of the Chamorro people. They do this by demonstrating traditional village skills from a specific period in time and teaching visitors to do the same. Our main guide, Julie, was fantastic and enthusiastic... More

I'm really glad we went to check this out, my daughter is living on the island (military) and this sounded like a good spot to visit, we weren't disappointed! We went in the late morning and didn't have to compete with any tour groups. Had a great experience and got to husk and shred coconuts used for the coconut candy... More

The Cultural Village is an interesting stop for a day trip to the east side of the island. The village is a small collection of huts each of which which demonstrate various aspects of Chamorron life. Demonstrations of weaving, candy making, and other crafts are done by native Chamorrans.

I can never get enough of this place. I am sad for those that think this place has nothing to offer, in fact, I feel that everyone should visit this place as a reminder of how Life was before the Digital Revolution. My Daughter in Law will never forget her first visit to Guam because of Gef Pa'go. Now she... More

Sweet village life in Gef Pa'go...I learned how the sleeping mats were made, and was given a little grasshopper made from the mat material. Salt was boiled down from salt water, bread baked in a clay oven, rope was made, and we toured the traditional houses in the village. The shop has beautiful batik art, and crafts not found in...

If you're visiting or new to the island, this is a MUST DO. You will learn all about the culture and lifestyle of the Spanish-era Chamorro; how they fished, made rope, built their houses and danced. Please don't forget to stop by here while you are on Guam.

The more you visit, the more dollars flow to the active restoration of Inarahan. I go every month to the Batik Workshop, at Judy Flores Studio. Register for the Workshop at Frames, Etc. in Agana.
