I was on Rapa Nui for nine days in March 2019 and toured the entirety of the park (but for the far northwest shore - no roads). A marvelous experience overall and the main reason to visit Rapa Nui.

Well, most of the sites in Rapa Nui National Park have been reviewed elsewhere, mostly with an excellent rating. Long may the park prosper and protect the valuable areas within it. Naturally it's a five star attraction.

With the Rapa Nui recently taking control of the administration of the national park and preservation of the sites, there is more "ownership" of not only the sites, but the cultural story that plays out throughout the park. This is the reason to come to...More

Many times you see ancient items and they appear larger on tv but not the case for this area. Great area with plenty of walking space. Very wild and undeveloped area of the island with many pulloffs, tons of wild horses on the roads which...More
