In 2016 it cost 40.00 USD (30,000 pesos) at the time the pesos were a better value option for us. The show was lovely but I was a bit disappointed at how many white people were... read more

My claim has nothing to do with the show or the dancers. They told me the day before to come earlier to reserve a good place. So I did that one hour before the beginning. I reserved my place with my bag and tried to buy a cocktail which I didn't get in the end. I waited for it almost... More

In 2016 it cost 40.00 USD (30,000 pesos) at the time the pesos were a better value option for us. The show was lovely but I was a bit disappointed at how many white people were dancing around up on stage whilst so many of the indigenous population seem to be under employed on the island. The only truly looking... More

We were so impressed with this show! The dancers were super energetic and seemed to really enjoy what they were doing! The show is powerful and moving, and although it has its sensual moments you can still bring your children to see the show. The only bad thing about the show is that the dancers take people from the audience... More

Some say that it's an authentic Rapa Nui show, some other that it's just something made for tourist. It doesn't matter that much, in my opinion. The show was something really different from any other you can see here in Europe, it's worth going only for this reason. Then it's really nice, cheerful, full of art. Kari Kari ballet was... More

the show was good, a bit crowded and hot, it would be better if they left out the part when they get the audience to dance with them.

The ballet contains the history of the original islanders. Sung in the native tongue does not prevent from visually following the story line. The music is magical.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner followed by front row seats for the show. I proved once again that i cannot dance! But, at least i had fun. The performers were excellent.

This was a fun night out. Truly great dancers. Over an hour of pure dancing and native music and dance. One thing I would say is that there was no "education" to the program. It was great food at the restaurant too!

The show was intimate, energizing, and many people went on stage to dance. It was fun. I just wish they had translated some of the songs.
