Rapanui's Culture is preserved in gorgeous dances and sounds. It is a unique experience in the world 's most remote place. Polynesian style sweet dances by the girls wearing a skirt of feathers and flowers. The men are just like the sculpture found at the Mataveri Airport, they have tattoos al over the body along the muscles, and show their... More

Great show. Lot of fun too. Dancers visibly enjoy it and invite spectators to the floor. Sitting a bit hard: bring your pillow

A broadway show it is not. But you are only here for an hour or so. The performers are athletic and easy to look at. Venue is rustic for sure. We were squeezed in and choose to stand for the whole show, which was fine. Nice to see equal representation of both sexes in the show.

It's exactly what (probably) it's supposed to be: just a fake tourists' show. The dancers are not the best you can find, they invite the tourists to dance with them three times. It's supposed to be funny, actually it's just kind of sad. They make jokes which are not brilliant... if you want to experience something authentic, this is NOT... More

Was fun to see the show. Guess some people love to get involved but I would rather see more of the professionals( only reason I gave 4 not 5)

A fun and interesting music/dance performance in Hanga Roa. On the expensive side but a fantastic evening of entertainment and a great insight into Rapa Nui customs.

This was not the sort of thing we would normally go to, but it was highly recommended to us. The dancing was spectacular and the music was excellent. Don't sit in the front row, if you don'´t wan't to be invited to join them on stage! A memorable experience and a real sense of the island's culture.

The Kari Kari dancers were some of the best I have seen. I've seen a few Polynesian dances in Tahiti and Hawaii and the Kari Kari was the top show. It seemed more raw and pure. The dancing in Hawaii has been tamed down for tourists, especially if you visit the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu. The Polynesian Cultural Center... More

We loved this show - it's a great balance of entertainment, storytelling and cultural education, and well worth the money. You don't need to speak Spanish (or any other language) to follow the music and dancing. Remember to take your dancing shoes as they encourage audience participation towards the end of the show - although it's not at all compulsory!
