Destination Information for Northern Mariana Islands

Crime is rare on the Northern Mariana Islands. Most tourists head to the main island, and the most inhabited, Saipan. There are occasionally reports of theft and burglary from hotel rooms here, but in general this is a safe destination to visit. There is a modern healthcare centre in Saipan, which is very popular, and can be understaffed at times. The two main smaller islands, Tinian and Rota, do have clinics available, but these are more basic, so for complex medical issues you may need to be evacuated to Saipan or to the mainland for treatment.

The main threat to health on the Northern Mariana Islands is from the two active volcanoes, although there has not been an eruption for some time. As Pacific Islands, the Marianas are subject to a tropical climate. The typhoon season is generally from late August onwards lasting several months. There has been reports of Dengue fever, sensible insect bite avoidance should be practiced, as well as using insect repellent from your travel kit between dusk and dawn.

Although the population is small, the locals are friendly and welcoming, and will make sure you enjoy your stay. Be prepared to experience a lifestyle unaffected by most modern technology – you’ll pay for goods and accommodation in cash and options are limited for shopping and eating out, meaning you truly get a taste of authentic island life on Niue.

Malaria and regions within country:

Malaria is not normally present in the Northern Mariana Islands.
