Guam - Following a soft opening in July, The Baldyga Group is rolling out the next phase of its cultural and eco-adventure theme park in Tumon. President and CEO Mark Baldyga spoke before the Rotary Club of Northern Guam about Lina'la and its goal to add to the cultural tourism options on Guam.

Baldyga says although business has been slow, he hopes to relay the message of its development and let the project slowly grow, noting, "I hope they will carry the message of how important the culture is to us and bring it back tot heir businesses and see how we can really engage. My role is to take the commercial sector and the Chamorro side and the tourism side and bring them all together."

He adds Lina'la will be the first major commercial attraction that focuses on Chamorro culture. The second phase will include a more authentic historical look of Guam, including a museum with a video theater and more animals. A grand opening is set for late-Janaury.
