Looking at doing South America later on in the year. At the moment planning to fly out late June to Santiago. Catch a flight to Easter Island and then back to Santiago to wait for a the start of a trip through South America.
The question is how long to spend at each?
Planning to arrive in Santiago 25th June and the trip doesn't start until 21st July. So I have about 4 weeks to occupy before then. I know that flights to Easter Island are limited so I will have to fit in with them.
I can get a flight out to Easter Island on the 26th and I know there is a flight back on the 14th July (or one a week earlier) Its a small island and chances are I'll only ever go there once so is it worth spending all that time there?
Is it really worth do a guided tour, or worth spending a bit of extra time there and really doing the island properly myself.
Also if anyone knows of any decent hotels/hostels/other accomodation on Easter Island or in Santiago for one person...
Thanks in advance
