On our first night in the island we went to the Te Ra’ai, a typical dinner and show. We were picked up at our hotel, received at the restaurant with a welcome drink and shown the way they prepare dinner in an Umu (earth oven), in similar fashion to the Chilean curanto, Peruvian pachamanca or Mexican barbacoa. While waiting for the cooking to be done, the local dancers tried to show us a few dancing steps and movements.
We dined fish, pork and poultry with vegetables from the Umu and some glasses of Chilean wine. Then we watched a very good show of typical Rapa Nui, Polynesian style dances.
Considering the price of the tickets, we found the dining and show package offered an excellent deal.
