What to do in the Marshall Islands: Nuclear Test Scenario in the past

Before diving into the white sand beaches and crystal clear waters of this paradise, let's take a leap into the past. In the 19th century, the Marshall Islands were a German protectorate, but later came under Japanese control and, after World War II, to the United States, which used the site for nuclear testing. Yes, you heard that right, nuclear testing!

However, today the Marshall Islands are a charming vacation destination. If you have the opportunity to visit them, there are five places you cannot miss: Majuro Lagoon, with its stunning panoramic views; the Bikini Atoll, site of nuclear tests, which is now an incredible place for diving; Laura Beach National Park, perfect for a relaxing day in the sun; Eneko Island, where you can explore marine life snorkeling; and, finally, the Alele Library, where you can learn about the history and culture of the islands.

Now that you know where to visit, it's important to know some details about the country. The local currency is the US dollar and the official language is Marshallese, although English is also widely spoken. And good news for us Brazilians: we don't need a visa to visit the Marshall Islands!

Now, let's move on to a more delicate issue: the socioeconomic and political situation of the Marshall Islands. The country is a parliamentary democracy, but still struggles with development issues. Fishing and agriculture are the main economic activities, but the lack of natural resources makes the country highly dependent on external assistance.

We were very well received in this paradise, we felt at home and highly recommend visiting this small country, we have beautiful memories of the people and places we visited.

So how much does it cost to travel to the Marshall Islands? The price depends a lot on the time of year and your city of origin, but be prepared for something between R$10,000 and R$15,000, including air tickets and accommodation.

Now, let's get to what we promised at the beginning of the video. What they never told you about the Marshall Islands is that, despite its nuclear testing, the radiation there is currently lower than that found in major cities around the world, making them safe to visit.

In conclusion, the Marshall Islands are a place of contrasts, where natural beauty mixes with a remarkable history. This is definitely a destination that we have to visit at least once in our lives.
