Iteresting to hear the music and the songs, and the costumes with the feather headdresses are wonderful. This is a very sincere show--a bit too much audience participation, and some explanation of the songs and dances that were performed would have been interesting.

No ifs or buts - an absolute must when visiting Easter Island is a trip to the Ballet Kari Kari. A fabulous performance of typically local music and dance put across with such enthusiasm and professionalism. An hour watching the show and the audience are worn out just watching. What a night out - our thanks.

Several people in Hanga Roa suggested that experiencing Kari Kari is a must - and they are right! Originally, we were a bit sceptical, thinking that it might be just very touristy. However, those who recommended it had no interest in it other than giving us good advice. We arrived just on time (no reservation) and got excellent seats. The... More

I booked in advance 2 tickets 4 days before. Once we arrived was a nasty old man and his wife, and 11 more in our seats. They refused to move that man, and show no intention to solve the issue. Finally they refund the money after 15 minutes. We couldn't see the show,

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
