Firstly, the logistics - there are 2 places in the island where you need to have your national park pass to enter - this is one, and the other is Orongo (you buy one ticket to get in to both places - you can buy at both these sites). The cheapest way is for you to get your ticket at the airport. There is a counter on your left just as you get out of the plane. You get a significant discount (around 20% - can't remember exactly) if you get your pass here. Of course, this was at the time of writing.
You should not miss this place on your visit. Of all the sites on Easter Island, I feel that this is the most AMAZING and spectacular. Even as you approach the site in your car, you see this hillside full of incomplete Moais (the heads). The sight when you start walking along the hillside is just amazing. Many Moais in different stages of completion and each very unique. We took our time exploring this place and you should too. Also, once you're done with the quarry side, don't forget to go on the short walk to the back of the hill and see a few other Moais from far. You used to be able to walk up and be up close with the Moais but not anymore.
Your Easter Island trip will not be complete if you don't visit this site.
