My husband and I are moving to Guam and are debating between moving to Yona or Tamuning. Any opinions on these two areas? I've read that Tamuning is busy and there is constant traffic congestion. I'm wondering if Yona would be a quieter/slower pace of life. My husband will be stationed out of Piti and I will hopefully be working in the Hagatna area. What is the approximate driving time between Hagatna and Yona? We don't have any children (yet), so schooling and what-not are not a concern at this point. Any advice would be appreciated, seeing as that planning a move to Guam from the States is difficult!

I've only been to Guam once. I'll be PCS'ing there in December. I've heard the same thing from friends who were stationed there.

Why Yona or Tamuning? I'll be at COMNAVMAR which is not far from Piti. I'm thinking Piti, Agat, or Apra Heights. Might consider Umatac or Talofofo also. The south seemed less developed when I was there a year and a half ago and not as congested.

If you live in Yona or Tamuning your husband is going to have to deal with the traffic every day on his way to work. Just something to consider. It all depends on what you're looking for.

Good luck, I haven't found a forum yet where it seems like a lot of people from Guam hang out. Maybe PDN. Here's a link for them and another for a Guam map.

And heres one more link for a site on the bases there and living in Guam

Hope that helps.

If you want to live in an area where you don't have to travel far for anything - restaurants, movies, shopping centers - than Tamuning is for you. Yona is a more relaxed, laid back area where there is not much traffic congestion. However, there is only one gas station in that area, no restaurants (that I know of), but there are a few grocery shops. My husband and I stay in the MongMong/Toto/Maite area and his travel time to work takes about 25 minutes. He works in Agat which is way past Piti village. Your husband should not really encounter too much traffic going south, if you decide to stay in Tamuning, as most vehicles are going northward. The travel time from Yona to Hagatna on a week day is probably about 15-20 minutes. Hope this helps.
