The national park ticket is cheapest if bought at the airport on arrival rather than the office near town. Plan ahead and buy when de-planing.

This is for sure one of the most amazing places I have seen on earth - especially because it seems to be coming from another world somehow. Easter Island is only a very small island in the middle of the pacific ocean and it is just amazing if one imagines how the former citizens have build these huge statues called... More

It's called national park on the island. There is no charge for visiting. Do not pay money. Try to carry water and some food in case you want to walk far along the trails. They can take beautiful photographs.

Visit the park and experience what you have read about or seen in movies. It takes a while to get there but it is worth the trip. Ocean views, volcanoes andarcheology.

An ultimate experience for a life time of travelling. The flight into the island was basic but greated with garlands of flowers by ukelale playing natives. The accommodation was a bungalow with rooms, very clean and food was good. Just about everything was within walking distance. I would reccomend booking a round the island tour as this gives the islands... More

Volcanoes, wild horses and fantastic sculptures. It was a fantastic experience and one of those places where it´s simply impossible to take a bad photo. Do make sure you have a couple of days on the island to really get the chance to absorb the atmosphere. We where there April 2010

Entry fee was included in our tours, but it would've been worth it if I was an independent traveller with hire car. There are many sites listed as part of the National Park all around the island and are all worthy of visiting - even for a short period of time. Some sites are manned whilst others are not, but...
