The Artisan Market is across the street from the Church of Rapa Nui (the Catholic church). This indoor shopping 'mall' has numerous craft stalls lined up one after another in three separate rooms. Usually the owner is present; if closed, a simple fabric covers the...More

This is worth stopping by for any shopping. There isn't a ton of shopping with different items on the island so this has a few different items that I didn't see at every other shop.

I don't understand the reviews here. Yes, this is the place to go for the most souvenir selection in one spot, but it is not a place for a deal. If you have enough time on the island, check out this spot to see what...More

The lady at Stall No 18 was warm, friendly, honest, and not pushy at all. It seems she has a family of artists--her husband makes stone moai, while her daughter makes wooden artifacts. We got two moai, a nicely carved dolphin with local motifs, a...More

This is the place to get authentic souveniers of Easter Island, the prices are reasonable and the money flows into the local economy
