While in Easter Island we saw both available shows, but Kari Kari is distinguished by the energy level and charm of the dancers. Our hotel made reservations for us and we got excellent seats. The young dancers are amazing, and the musicians add a nice favor to the show. I was impressed by a singer that performed towards the end.... More

This show was entertaining, but I would have enjoyed it a lot more if I'd known what the dances were about. The dancers are very enthusiastic and seem very good at what they do (and have incredible stamina), but at times it started to seem very repetitive. It probably wasn't if you understood what was going on, but they don't... More

We had already had a good experience with Kari Kari some 14 years ago and were wondering how it would be this time. And the answer is: gorgeous! Very professional and giving a very good image of Rapanui Polynesian culture. We have been recently in New Zealand, in Tahiti and in Marquises Islands and frankly this is likely the best... More

The dancing and music of Kari Kari was incredible, intense, haunting, full of energy, so many things! I would recommend this to anyone that wants to get more of a feel of the local island culture. The performers seem very genuine and dedicated to there craft. Amazing experience and a highlight of our trip. Get there at least an hour... More

I joined this show with my wife. It was a bit difficult to find the location since the theater is located 100 meter away from the main street. The dances were powerful and elegant and here is highly recommendable to visit. I recommend coming to here 20 minutes before the show starts because the favorable seats may get full. The... More

We went here on the recommendation of the German man in the hotel room next to us, and absolutely loved it. If you want a reasonable seat you'd probably want to arrive 3/4 to 1/2 an hour before the show starts at 9pm. We didn't reserve it, just turned up on a Tuesday night and there was no problem getting... More

We've been to a couple Polynesian dance shows in Hawaii & New Zealand. Hands down they were nothing compared to the dancers in the Kari Kari show on Rapa Nui. In spite of the show venue being a bit difficult to find (we just used a taxi & they returned to pick us up when the show was over), it... More

beautiful dancers perform share an athletic cultural experience. Not the Disney version I feared - it was more like Magic Mike with some hula girls on the side. worked for me.

A small group of us went to the show here one night. They did traditional dances of Rapi Nui. The dancers even brought up audience members on the stage to dance with them. If you buy/reserve your tickets earlier in the day you will be in the first 4 rows. Our tour guide made reservations as we were in row... More
