    Rano Raraku and Rapa Nui National Park are one and the same. You have to buy the tickets online for $90 which covers all sites on the island although Rano Raraku can be visited only once. In addition, you must be accompanied by a local, preferably a guide, which is a rip-off but since you came here to see the moai you have no choice but pay.

    You can visit Ahu Tongariki in the company of a local guide only. New regulations after covid to create extra employment for the locals. The ticket must be bought online and printed out as they stamp it at the entrance. The cost is $90, it covers all sites on the island, and it's good for 10 days, although some sites can be visited only once.

    It really is a beautiful beach. So far, I have seen few such beauties. The water is clean, fine and pleasant. The gold sand is clean and fine grained. It is worth taking the time to bathe if you travel to this island. The catering is chaotic. The waiter took the order in a minute. He served the drink after 20 minutes. They didn't start preparing the food in 1 hour. Service was continuous at the side window. Maybe you should have asked for a takeaway... But the tourist doesn't know that. That's why I can't give maximum points.

    Rapa Nui National Park is the same as Rano Raraku. You have to buy the tickets online and print it as they stamp it and don't use the QR code for some reason. You must be accompanied by a local guide, it's a new regulation, quite an extortion since you have to fork out $90 for the ticket.

    You need a park ticket (USD $80) paid by credit card only. The crater (Orongo) can only be visited once and always with a guide. The three places you can visit without a guide are Anakena & Ovahe beaches and Tahai in town. Has a stone "village" consisting of a collection of low, sod-covered, windowless, round-walled buildings with even lower doors positioned on the high south-westerly tip of the large volcanic caldera called Rano Kau.

    We booked the show only as we had dinner earlier. We loved the energy here! Beautiful show & culture. A short film beforehand to explain Kari Kari and we loved that we were contributing to keep the group flourishing being Polynesians ourselves we know how important this is. Also secured a tattoo appointment with Mokomae while I was at the show! 10/10 recommend.

    Ahu Tahai is located within the town limits so you can visit it on your own without an accompanying guide for free at any time of the day. Actually the site includes three ahu: the iconic Tahai with 5 moai; Ko Te Riku with its eyes restored; and a lone moai Vai Ure.

    Ahu Akivi is a nice site but if you're pressed for time do Ahu Tongariki and Ahu Nau Nau as they are the best ahu. As with most of the Rapa Nui sites you need a guide to enter.

    I had a rental vehicle and drove to this beach first. Free parking in the lot and about a 10 min. walk down to the beach. Pure paradise-super clear water in an amazing setting. Hardly anyone there-just a few locals. A true hidden gem.

    Ahu Nau Nau is located in the north of the island. The four moai with red pukao are terrific. I would rate it the second best site after Tongariki.

    Ahu Akahanga is a very busy site as it lies along the way to Rano Ranaku and Tongariki so all tourist buses stop here. The site features a few fallen moai which were destroyed as a result of a war on the island according to our guide whose presence is mandatory for you to enter the site. Some 500 feet to the south of the ahu there's another one, namely Ahu Ura Uranga. You can walk there if the entry not restricted as it may be due to the archaeological works.

    Puna Pau is an ancient quarry where the Rapa Nui people mined the red scoria used to make the pukao, those hat-like cylindrical blocks which represented not hats but hair style according to our guide. Except the man-made crater (result of the mining) and a few abandoned blocks of scoria there's not much to see there. The views are good though
