I had thought that we would find a few of the famous moai statues at various sights on Easter Island...but they are everywhere that you look. The island must have at least fifty archeology sites. And the rows of standing moat are quite stunning. Getting around is quite difficult with dire and potholed roads, but you must make the effort.

The park is the holder of some of the most impressive tourist attractions of the island (Rano Raraku, Ahu Tongariki, Orongo and Rano Kau) and thus it should not be missed. The cost of the admission ticket is US$60 per person and it can be bought either at the airport, upon arrival, or at the park's entrance. It's an amazing... More

Most of the island is in fact part of the national park. It has several unique view and locations you'd like to visit. My personal suggestion would be to go with a guide, because even though you can rent a car and drive around yourself as long as you have the ticket you wont really get the meaning of what... More

The whole island IS a national park. a very small, rugged, non tropical island, far away from everything in the middle of the Pacific ocean, with so few natural resources (eg. no rivers) that you just wonder how people survived on it for so long! The history and plight of the people who landed there, who carved and transported giant... More

Everything you will see is amazing. Keep in mind that you can visit the two volcanos only once, while you can come back to the other sites as many times as you want. Suggestion: spend two days to see everything one time, then two more days to go back to the most special places, relax, swim and feel the Island!

Easter island is worth the difficulties to get there. The moai were amazing to witness first hand. After years of seeing them in National Geographic it was wonderful to see them first hand. The park is easy to access.

A must! For everyone. The history (still a mistery) is so exciting, so don't miss anything! " And remember, let someone take a photo of you in the "same line" as the statues. Great memory!

Well worth the trip! It met our expectations. World heritage site and global treasure. Buy tickets at airport upon arrival unless it is included in your tour package.

Very interesting park, well organised with signs and good paths to access to the sites. When arriving at the airport, before entering the arrival hall, you will see a desk selling the entrance ticket that allows you to go to all sites as many times you want (except for Rano Raraku and Orongo where you can only go once).
