“The reason you travel to Easter Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

This place is the reason you travel to Easter Island, there's not much more I can say that isn't already explained 100 times in the other reviews. Getting here is worth every penny of the trip.

“A definite must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Go there several times as the views of the Moai change with the weather conditions, and try and avoid the crowds, they soon disperse if you wait. Don't walk beyond the indicated area and respect the Moai, it is a magical place.

Across the way from the National park or another old volcano mountaintop, wonderful site of these huge marvelous structures, so awe inspiring seeing them up close and personal!

“The Famous 15 Moais Are Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

I was awed by the size and sight of the famous moais.
This was one of the stops of our one day tour. Until we got near those statues, it was hard to imagine how big they were. Our tour guide was fascinating as she explained about them.

“15 Moais”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

great place for picture taking- there is a sandy hill at the end where you can stand next to the Moais and make yourself part of the exhibit
