Visitor arrival numbers for April 2017 surpassed the previous record held 20 years ago. Guam welcomed 122,622 visitors, breaking the 1997 record of 105,586 visitors.
“It’s clear Guam is attracting more visitors to our shores and people want to get a taste of our Håfa Adai spirit and Chamorro culture,” said Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio. “Guam’s number one industry supports over 20,000 jobs in our community. I encourage everyone to thank our hospitality workers as we celebrate Tourism Month in May.”
“More visitors have discovered our beautiful and pristine island. We have more milestones to celebrate as April arrival numbers have jumped to historic levels. I want to congratulate the hard-working men and women of the Guam Visitors Bureau and the airline and tourism industries on job well done. We know it’s not easy to put together events, activities and projects that show how tourism works for Guam. We look forward in continuing to break records when it comes to visitor arrivals.” — Governor Eddie Baza Calvo
