We've been to a couple Polynesian dance shows in Hawaii & New Zealand. Hands down they were nothing compared to the dancers in the Kari Kari show on Rapa Nui. In spite of the show venue being a bit difficult to find (we just used a taxi & they returned to pick us up when the show was over), it... More

beautiful dancers perform share an athletic cultural experience. Not the Disney version I feared - it was more like Magic Mike with some hula girls on the side. worked for me.

A small group of us went to the show here one night. They did traditional dances of Rapi Nui. The dancers even brought up audience members on the stage to dance with them. If you buy/reserve your tickets earlier in the day you will be in the first 4 rows. Our tour guide made reservations as we were in row... More

We were told about this show by some other people on one of tours so thought we would go and have a look. The venue looks a little ramshackle but the show was very professional. Lots of great and energetic dancing with quite a bit of audience participation (be warned if you are a bit shy!). Fun show and definetly... More

We were recommended to see this show by the hotel receptionist. At first, the impression is of a rather amateurish set-up, with rather a casual approach to ticket sales and seat reservation. (After you have bought a ticket for 15,000 pesos each, you simply put a piece of paper with your name on your chosen seat.) Once the show starts,... More

I had no idea what to expect from the show. I went on the recommendations of people and I am so glad I did. The show was engaging and lively. They also promote audience participation which always makes the show even more fun! The dancers and the dancing was awesome!! Get there early but you can also reserve your seats... More

Definitely a highlight of the trip full of highlights. A great show and lots of laughs. Kids will be captivated. Adults too. As with most island dance…there is quite a bit of sexy…keep that in mind but it didn't phase my 6 and 8 year old so I didn't let it phase me. Wouldn't miss it for a taste of... More

I went to see this show, but was immediately dissapointed by the venue. Just an old flat room inside an old hotel. Then the show started, and it was clear the performers were professionals. Simply very good.

When I researched the show prior to our trip, I found it difficult to find all the information I needed so I'm hoping this review will help other travelers plan their trip:-) The show venue is located just off the main street in Hanga Roa, Atamu Tekena. There is a poster on a main road, just by the entrance to... More

could be considered a little pricey at 15000 pesos a person to enter, although It was definitely money well spent. really enjoyed the performance and was even pulled out of the crowd to join in with the dance! defiantly rate this as an evening out!
