My family and I are due to move to Guam later this year. We would like to plan ahead and we would like to know how expensive is it to live in Guam? What is the cost of accommodation, utilities, eating out etc. in Guam?
It is always good to plan with a move. The cost of living in Guam is generally high. As it’s an island, most goods must be imported there, while its natural beauty has made it an attractive tourist location, making it expensive. Although how expensive you find it depends on your income, how you manage finances, and your spending and lifestyle decisions.
Utilities and general grocery products are costly in Guam even compared to the mainland US. The price of accommodation in Guam is also high and can be compared to major US cities. All said, if you move to the island with a job in place and manage your finances well, then you should be able to live a comfortable lifestyle. Do have a look at our Moving to Guam guide and you can get some tips on relocating to the island.
