The national park is amazing. You will need to purchase a ticket which covers almost every site, when your flight lands at the airport. We were on the late flight in but the office opens especially so don't worry about that. Try to be off the plane sharpish as there is only 1 guy serving & obviously almost everyone needs... More

While many visitors rush here for sunrise I would rather visit late afternoon when the sun is on the faces. Better still do sunrise and a 4pm visit. The road there is only a 40 minute slow drive. Make sure you look for the "Top knots" that are placed in a row away from the statues, a bit uphill and... More

The Moainfigures were just what I had hoped that they would be. A long way from everywhere but a magic place to visit.

No visit to Easter Island would be complete without seeing the famous Maoi, and a knowledgeable local guide will add substantial value to your experience.

We had a wonderful time visiting Easter Island (Rapa Nui) and were able to visit various sites with the Moai figures.

It is a great national park. Two things a traveler needs to know are: currently there is "trouble" between the Chilean authorities and a native Rapa Nui group about who should run the park. It doesn't give a tourist any trouble but is worth knowing. Secondly, some sites can only be entered one time on the park pass that is... More

Learn about the cultural past of the native people of this island by visiting several sights. You can either take a guided tour or rent a car. I would suggest a tour since you will get alot of details and be able to ask questions not found in printed docs. We had a great time viewing the statues, expliring the... More

Most of the island is considered part of the national park so you need to get a ticket (4 days I believe) to get out of Hanga Roa and visit any place of interest apart from Anakena beach. Also, a good chunk of the more interesting parts of the island (caves, hidden moai) are accessible only by foot so make... More

The island is beautiful an quite amazing, still, they need to invest more in the routes, and infrastructure of the island, you pay 80usd and you don't see a real development on the island... The tourist deserve more but after all what you see is worth it all the way!
