About Northern mariana islands

The Northern Mariana Islands, officially known as the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), is an unincorporated territory of the United States located in the western Pacific Ocean. It consists of 14 volcanic and limestone islands and islets, spread out in a north to south direction. The largest and most populated island is Saipan, followed by Tinian and Rota. The total population is around 57,000, with the majority residing in Saipan, which is also the capital of the territory. The islands' stunning beauty, consisting of picturesque beaches, crystal clear waters, and an abundance of vibrant coral reefs, attract visitors from around the globe. The tropical climate, with average temperatures ranging between 24°C and 30°C, provides ideal conditions for various outdoor activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling, and hiking. The rich and diverse history of the Northern Mariana Islands reflects influences from its original Chamorro inhabitants, Spanish colonizers, Japanese occupation during World War II, and its current affiliation with the United States. The indigenous Chamorro culture, with its distinct language, cuisine, music, and dance, is still evident in the everyday life of the people. The local economy is heavily dependent on tourism, which is the primary industry, but the islands also receive significant financial assistance from the U.S. federal government. Agriculture and fishing are other important sectors, with sugar cane, coconuts, and bananas being the main crops, while the surrounding waters are rich in tuna and other marine resources.
