We went to the show on a whim after seeing an advertisement on the street, but ended up really enjoying ourselves! The songs were in Spanish and Rapa Nui, but are beautiful no matter what language you speak. It's an hour long show for about 25 USD.

Pasta was yummy. If I recall, the ceviche was soooo good. I don't need to add more just to fill in the 50 characters.

A little hard to find because there is only a sign on the street and a path back between houses to the small house where the ballet is. You can buy wine really cheap, about $5 a glass but during the show it's impossible for the wait staff to come take more orders so it's almost pointless to try. The... More

The show was professional. The songs were sang in Rapanui and in Spanish, so for an English speaking person it was a bit difficult to follow though beautiful. Maybe handouts in English could be prepared to describe the stories and songs. Of course it was fascinating to listen to Rapanui -language as it is nearly distinct.

Did they change the name? If this is the MAORI TUPUNA presented by Vai Te Mihi, then this was for us even more interesting than the Moai Statues! These traditional dances full of passion, amazing costumes and beautiful people! It was our BEST & UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE on Easter Island, we have never seen something like this, totally worth the expensive... More

Lovely show, great location - in the main street. We bought the cheapest tickets (stands) and saw the show as well as the people that bought seats (chairs).

Well worth the price. Very entertaining and interactive with the crowd. Excellent dancers adorned with elaborate native attire. A fun night out on Rapa Nui for sure!

The show is nice, with enthousiastic dancers. But no explanation whatsoever is given, so one just has to guess what the dance and music is about. No way to know whether this is traditional, modern interpretation, ... Seating is a bit uncomfortable. If you book in advance, you are seated in the front row.

A great show with lots of flamboyant costumes and music. There are various dance performances and then some audience participation. CDs and DVDS of it are available if you want a souvenir. A really fun way to spend an evening!

Expect to be called up to join in the dance especially the front rows. great costumes. we had a no dinner show, although shows with dinner... More
