While on Easter Island we went to three of the cultural dance presentations and Kari Kari was by far the best of the lot. Part of the proceeds goes to fund the school that teaches the traditional Polynesian dances. Most of these dances were relearned...More

We have seen similar performances in Hawaii and New Zealand, but this one was great - colourful costumes and great music. Just make sure you visit the office at least one day before the performance to reserve a place. Seating was a little cramped and...More

We booked show with dinner, 40,000. Peso per person. Three course dinner, salad or soup, main course and coffee or dessert. Food was delicious. The show was great, with lots of audience interactions. It was only a one hour show. I think the actual performance...More

We wanted to get a taste of the culture of the island so we chose this show to hear traditional music and see the local dances of this far away isolated island. Through the show we saw the pride these people curry for their country...More

Great dance show, it is definitely not ballet though. The dancers are very good, as are the musicians. They should update the seating though, quite uncomfortable.

The show is not on every night so better check the time in advance. It has 2 types of tickets: one is dinner+tickets and the other is just tickets. Of course, if you purchase dinner & ticket package, you will be assigned with the seats...More

Can't remember cost of show but not excessive. Dinner is an optional extra before the show.

We took advice from our hotel. They said there was no need to book ahead - the shows were on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 21.00 hours - they took us there 30 minutes before which was plenty of time.
