Odds are you don't have relatives on Easter Island. Most likely you visited for the Moai - the iconic carved statues and all the history that they represent. The Rapi Nui Park is what preserves them, all over the island, and the historic sites associated...More

Easter island is a unique place on Earth. Simply amazing. The only thing I regret is not having gone to Tahiti ( it is so close of Easter island).

Get your ticket right at the airport for all of the National Park sites. These are spectacular historic sites. Take a full day tour and then rent a car to see others.

Since about 65% of the entire land mass of the island falls under the authority of the National Park, there is really no point in coming to Easter Island without buying a park ticket. There is a ticket office right there at the airport, and...More

This island is really something special, mystical, somehow out of this world. Silent witness of a long gone culture which actually destroyed itselfby exploiting all of its natural resources to build ever more and bigger of the famous Moai statues. There is only one small...More

Try to book with Easter Island Tours. They will pick you up and they limit tour size to eight. Our tour guide was outstanding.
