Our family (including kids 10 and 13 yr old) all thoroughly enjoyed our time at Valley of the Latte! The boat ride was wild - we saw crabs, catfish, and other animals in/near the river. Everyone (even adults) had the opportunity to ride a caribou, my kids loved the animals we met at the village (boat, chickens, goat, deer). I loved the walk through the plants and trees with descriptions of their names and traditional uses. The latte stones in their natural environment really helped you envision how a riverside village looked. The demonstrations on how to open and use a coconut, the many uses of the woven palm leaves, making a fire from "scratch," and giveaway games kept the audience entertained while educating them on Chamorro culture. Lots of laughter and applause!
The food was delicious fiesta food. There were unlimited cold drinks. Coco Jay needs a raise for how hard he worked to keep his guests happy! It was so hot and this guy was doing stand up comedy while cracking a coconut open with a rock and kamyu-ing the niyok! Very talented!! Being Chamorro, but raising my family off island, I am so grateful that there are businesses like this in Guam working very hard to educate people on Chamorro culture and passing it down to the next generation in the best possible way, by immersing all our senses in the beauty of the Chamorro culture. You will never forget your time at Valley of the Latte! Si Yu'os Ma'åse' ❤️
