It is hard to describe with words, you just have to see it yourself. Best option is to buy the tickets for the Nationalpark at the Airport just after arriving. So you can start right away to explore the wonders of Rapa Nui. I do recomend 5 days for Rapa Nui and you should not only see the sites accessible... More

We went in July, and it was beautiful. There's all sorts of things to do from seeing the Moai, to exploring caves, to snorkeling and boating, hiking, ATVing, biking... You need at least two days, if not three, to really see everything. We were there for 3.5 days, and I wish we had a few more.

This is the place to see Moai, just getting here will lead you through the quarries where some Moai remain, around the corner from Anakeena beach

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
