Rapa Nui National Park Is the best site on the whole of Easter Island Chile to visit the statutes, the other is Ahu Tongariki site. To avoid being smothered by tourists avoid the days when the cruise liners coming in otherwise you are constantly having to wait for people to pass by before taking that exceptional shot with your camera!...

Expensive to get to and to visit but a unique experience, hard to beat. The quarry was the highlight for us, as well as sunrise at Tongariki - do this if you get the opportunity. Buy your parks ticket (US$80) at the airport but they ONLY take cash - US$ or CLP. Quite ridiculous for the volume of tickets they... More

As you leave the plane, queue up and buy your ticket. It will cost you $80 cash only, and if you consider it expensive, just think that you have made a very long journey and are about to see the most wonderful sights. You will need you ticket to go just about anywhere outside the main town and if you... More

It is expensive, US$80 per person, but well worth it. To go to Easter Island and not visit the park would be crazy.

To acces the park (which is about 3/4 of the island you have to buy some very expensive tickets. You buy this in the airport and they only take cash (US Dollars or Chilean Pesos). There is absolutely no point going to Easter Island if you don't go to the park. The park covers all the areas with statues, all... More

Rapa Nui aka Easter Island is one of the highlights of world travel. The culture, the island itself, the mysteries, the archeological sites are first rate. I have wanted to come here my entire life and aside from restrictions on site access somewhat recently introduced to protect the sites, the experience entirely met my expectations. Most people "do" Easter Island... More

While the park admittance fee is stiff by North American standards ($85), let's face it: you just spent $2000 to come here and there is NOTHING else to do on this island, so you're going to pay the fee and feel good about helping out the local economy. I would recommend at least 1, but preferably 2 full day tours.... More

Visiting Easter Island It was a dream since I was a child and then, 30 years after, I realised it! The island, also called Rapanui or Te Pito o te Henua (the navel of the world, in the local language), is a jewel lost in the middle of the pacific. Now I give you some tips for getting the most...
