We spent 6 nights at Hostal Pukao in Easter Island's off-season winter 2014 - the only guests in this terrific retreat. Pukao is a great place for anyone wanting to explore the Island from a comfortable, rural location at a reasonable price. Mature mango and avocado trees, banana plants on the property. Owner Maria Isabel is friendly and informative (banking,... More

Our stay at hostal Pukao was all good. The place is like a mix between a pension and a hotel. Maria Isabel will welcome you to a simple but nice and clean room. The price is very good for easter island - where some more sophisticated hotels may cost thousands of dollars. Here, you will get the real Easter Island... More

Staying at Hostal Pukao was by far the decision I made when visiting EI! The hostess, Maria Isabel was hospitable, friendly and elevated our entire experience on the island and helped us tap in to the authenticity of the Rapa Nui people. We started each morning with a fresh breakfast (fresh juices, omelets, breads, cheese, sausages, tea and coffee) laid... More

You will do best to rent a car or motor cycle(s) but... More

This is great place to relax (remotely from the busy village center), to prepare your own meals and enjoy the nature in the huge garden! Maria-Isabel is the lovely host of these newly opened Cabanas/Hostal. She will pick you up at airport (and return), help you with shopping (ask on arrival if you could combine the supermarket visit just after... More
