What to do in Micronesia: The country that is made almost entirely of water!

Did you know that Micronesia is a country made up of more than 600 islands in the Western Pacific? That's right, this is a place with many stories to tell, from the first prehistoric societies to modern times, including Spanish, German, Japanese and American influences.

Our trip starts in Yap, known for its giant stone coins, a unique sight! Afterwards, we head to Chuuk, with incredible WWII wreck diving opportunities. Pohnpei, with its ruins of the city of Nan Madol, is the next stop. We then visited beautiful Kosrae, a volcanic island of stunning beauty. And to close with a flourish, we go to Palikir, the capital and a hub for exploring the diversity of the region.

The US dollar is the official currency, and while English is commonly spoken, over 17 different languages are spoken across the various islands. We Brazilians do not need a visa for stays of up to 30 days.


In socioeconomic terms, Micronesia is a democratic federation, supported mainly by US aid. Fishing and agriculture are important parts of the local economy, although tourism is beginning to play an increasingly significant role.


How much does it cost to travel to Micronesia? Well, it largely depends on where you're departing from and where you're going, but accommodation and food are relatively affordable, especially compared to other Pacific island destinations.


And now for the curiosity we promised in the title. Micronesia is made almost entirely of water! In fact, its territory is 98% water, making it one of the countries with the highest water-to-land ratio in the world.
