This location was a very useful part of my research on true world history. As a writer, I felt the stop here was important to learning more about the local culture.
One of the best places to visit in the world...there are so much to do....hiking, diving, surfing, archaelogic tours...only two fligths ( from Santiago in Chile and Tahiti ) to the most isolated place in Earth. about 5000 people living in Easter Island making such a quiet and peaceful place to spend some days. To visit the famous places in... More
As a sculptor this has been on my list for a long time and there was not a single disappointment. The quarry, caldera of partially finished Moais, ancient sites all over the island continued to amaze and inspire me. The people are friendly and the guides full of enthusiasm and information.
This place is eerie and breathtaking it's phenomenal coming here the history the people their way of life will enchant you in many ways you never thought capable of the human experience I will be returning as soon as possible!

There are 400 half carved moais everywhere at bizarre angles in the cliff face, one of... More
If you spend less than 4 days here, you will miss a lot. The massive restoration at Tongariki has a lot of history if you have the right guide to tell you about it.

Ramiro was very accommodating, considering my change of dates 3 times! He assured... More
If you decide to visit Easter Island, this is a must do. I'd strongly recommend taking a guided tour. We did one with the owner of our B&B Chez Jerome. I highly recommend his tour. A full day tour cost us $75. Just a great experience.
Awesome places to explore. Unlike any other place I have visited. Truely unique place. The Moai were very interesting. Go to the public library and chat to the people there. They were keen to talk about their island and heritage.
We were lucky to receive a tour of this park with Patricia Vargas the co- author of Silent Sentinels, who was a leader on the archeology of this park. There are 887 Easter island statues, making the biggest installation if sacred sculpture in the Pacific. Stunning, magnificent statues. The small island measures 63.17 sq miles. Island has 20,000 archeological sites,... More
