Always wanted to go to Easter Island but felt it was too expensive. So we wrapped this in with a recent trip to Chile and Argentina. In retrospect I wish I had gone here years ago. This is a very special place. Some places you just connect with and this is one. We had a great guide (essential), should have... More

The park encompasses many of the sites on the island and requires a pass to access. Not all sites require the pass but some are monitored.

We visited this place twice -- at sunrise and midday. The sunrise drew a larger crowd, but our photos taken on both occasions are spectacular. If you choose to be there for sunrise, arrive at least thirty minutes prior and allow plenty of time to get there. With darkened streets, Swiss cheese pavement, and cows/horses/dogs roaming the roads, nighttime driving... More

An amazing place that you should visit at least once in your lifetime. The history of the the island inhabitants that created the features is a a story of happiness and much sadness

This is a case where a picture is not worth a thousand words. You have to see this for yourself. They did a great job of reconstruction of this site. I could have stayed hours to marvel in the structures there.

The Easter Island - or Rapa Nui, as it is called in the native language - is one of those places to visit in the lifetime! The moais (statues) are the main attraction (and there are many of them all over the place!), but there are much more to see and to experiment in this small island. It is advised... More

Your park permit only allows you to visit Orongo/Volcano Rano Kau and Akahang one time and therefore MUST visit the... More

Basically, all over Easter Island/Rapa Nui is National Park. An absolutely outstanding place to visit with Moais spread over various parts, a fascinating culture and history, vulcanic landscapes, a beautiful beach, friendly locals, ....!
