Don't let the location put you off, this is a beautiful site with a gorgeous background. There are some cows on the property, so mind your step. On the first Ahu you can see the impressive building skills, as the stones fit almost perfectly. The...More

This is probably the most famous one of the platforms where the stone statues stand on. The very thick stones that form the Ahu reminds me of the ones the Incas built in Peru. One can see a few fallen heads and top hats near...More

Polynesians just don't do stonework, except at Easter Island. The stonework here is clearly similar to what you'd find in Peru. That is one of the reasons that Thor Heyerdahl thought the first inhabitants of this island were from South America, and he may have...More

Another mystery here when you see how well constructed the stone walls are, reminiscent of those walls constructed by the Incans. You will enjoy the sights here other than the stone walls.
