Health & safety
Guam is a welcoming place, but be aware all the same. In recent years, the island has had a rash of burglaries and robberies, particularly over the Christmas period. Lock your hire car, no matter how long you're away for; park in well-lit areas and don't leave valuables in the vehicle; and don't openly count money. Apparently there's a scarcity of cops, not because there's a doughnut shortage but because the police department was one of the government agencies that felt the fullest effect of Guam's recent 'early out' retirement incentives.
