The Guam National Wildlife Refuge Center at Ritidian Beach Park offers several great guided hikes. One of the tours is the Ritidian Cave Tour. This tour is fairly short and is easy enough for beginners and kids! These caves can only be visited on the guided tour so it’s worth doing them at least once.
The tours are only offered on certain days each month and need to be pre-booked. You can also reserve them for a group, you just give them a call to set it up.
Ritidian Cave Tour it is offered on Tuesday & Saturday from 9 am to 11 am. You can contact them from this page to set up the tour.
This tour is really more like a walk and is only 1/4 of a mile long. There is no climbing or challenging surfaces so it’s great for people of all ages and mobility levels.
The Cave Tour focuses on stopping at three major areas. The knowledge guides provide you with info at each stop and point of interest.
The Ritidian Beach cave is a decent size and even has some pictographs. There is a burial site right outside the cave entrance as well.
The Latte stone sight highlights an original latte stone from the early Chamorro people.
The final cave, Star Cave, has some of the best pictographs! You can see several in this cave and one even looks like a handprint!
There are several pictographs in the first cave and many more in the 2nd cave!

Don’t forget to check out the Cultural Center before or after the hike as they have some great displays set up highlight habitats and animals here in Guam.
Overall the Ritidian Cave Tour is a great way to get outside and explore here in Guam as well as get to experience pictographs and latte stone from the ancient times. These are not items that you get to experience everyday.
If you’ve taken the Cave Tour I’d love to hear what you thought!
