Since this performance occurred only 3 days a week, tickets were limited and in high demand. Luckily, our hotel, Hotel Altiplanico, assisted us with the booking and our seats could not be better. We were seated on the third row at the center of the...More

The traditional music and dance of the Rapa Nui should be experienced at least once during your visit to Easter Island. The Ballet Kari Kari put on a great show. The athleticism and energy is truly astounding. We arrived a bit early and were seated...More

This is a must see activity as the dancers and singers represent native culture. Be warned the men are barely clothed and can be making sudden moves toward the audience. Be prepared to go on stage and dance.

We saw this show and the show next to it, but this one was better since the stage was bigger and it had more dancers. The dancers were hot, amazing bodies, so it's eye candy galore. It's not like a broadway show where the men...More

Located down a laneway from the main street, the performance can be seen with or without dinner. Audience area is crowded and cramped, and the performance lasts only 45 minutes, but is very vigorous, heavily tattooed and well costumed (not much is covered by most...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.
