This is the place that comes to your mind when you heard "Easter Island". The restoration of this site was done very well, and there is a large field for you to walk around and enjoy the scenery from different angles.
The name Tongariki refers to easterly winds. Located on the east end of the south coast, this is the place to watch the sun coming up behind the moai. There are plenty of other reasons to visit though. Tongariki is the largest ceremonial structure built...More

We were there last month (3/2015). They drive on the right side of the road. I saw a car rental place right in town but don't know what they cost. If I were you, I'd take a small group or private tour. The tour guides have so much information to offer. We took private tours and LOVED it. I had read a lot on Easter Island and guides had so much more to offer that no book ever told me. Have a good trip!
