I was looking for adventure in Guam at the internet and I found Guam Adventures site. They are offering activities that tourist will enjoy. Two things that I did with them, for this post, I focus on Buggy Off-Road adventure. I haven’t tried to do a buggy off-road even I knew that it was available in my country. I haven’t had a chance.
When I was in Guam, when I found the site, I got a chance to experience the buggy off-road ride. Because I don’t know how to drive, I told them that I will join with a guide. The reason I sign up on it because I saw their video advertisement regarding the said adventure and I was curious on their tracks and the site that they stop to enjoy the coastal scenic view of the island.
I joined the 11 AM adventure schedule. They picked me up in my hotel around 10:30 AM and when I arrived at their headquarters I was the only visitor inside the building, after few minutes passed, lots of Japanese visitors came. All of us will have the buggy-off road adventure at the same time. While we were waiting, another group came-in, they were the group which just finished the said buggy-off road adventure. I realized that the Guam Adventures seems famous to the visitors in the island.

After they accommodated the previous group, the company’s attention came to us. First, they gave us our helmets and they checked if we have sun glass which I had at that time, they said its good and no need to borrow one from them. Next, we went out of their office and walked towards where the Buggy ATV (all-terrain vehicles) are. They oriented the people who will drive by themselves. They shown the instructions how to use Buggy ATV car. Then, we selected our vehicle. My guide and my driver went to our ATV and we did a test. There is a test track not far from their office to check that all in the group are comfortable driving the Buggy ATV. After some few rounds in the practice tracks, we started the adventure. At first, we drove to the part of race track. Next, we took the off-road tracks, some are elevated, some are inclined, some are mixed plain and some are zigzag tracks.
We entered the forest track which I felt more exciting. Though the tracks were dusty at that time, I still enjoyed it. My guide asked me to rate the driving adventure that I like and I told him next level before the extreme level adventure. After that, he did some tricks to make the driving Buggy ATV more fun.
After driving at forest track, we were back in the off-road tracks. We drove farther and father than the previous tracks we had. Then, the group stopped and I thought that we will just rest in few minutes. Then we walked few meters from where we parked our vehicle towards the viewpoint. And when I saw the coast, I felt amazed. I was standing in a lookout point to enjoy the panoramic scenery of North-East Coast of the island from the top.
When I saw the coastal scenery, I can’t stop but to admire it. All of us in the group took our time to take lots of photos. Everyone has their time to stand and position to have a photo with wonderful scenery.
After we were done with amazing scenery, we drove back and returned to where we started. Even on our way back, the driving and riding experience were still enjoyable. We drove from off-road tracks to race tracks to practice/test tracks until we were back to the adventure’s headquarters.
