All of the sites were fairly easily accessible for people who could walk a short distance. We could get fairly close to the Moai and guides were excellent.

Go early as crowds are coming right after 10:00. We got early, but sadly after 15 min it started to rain. We headed back to the car and waited for the sun to come out. After an hour we could head in again and you...More

to be there is even better than it looks from the pictures! Moai and nature! Several Moai, standing, seated, laid down... and breath taking views of the inner lake, the far away blue sea, the countryside!

This is the quarry where the moai were carved BEFORE being transported to their final destination on the island. It is so interesting to see moai in various stages of production and imagine what it must have been like hundreds of years ago. The quarry...More

The park fee is expensive but allows you to visit all areas (90%) of the island. Rank Raraku is a “must see”. This ticked off a big one from my bucket list and didn’t disappoint. Recommended.

It doesn’t get anymore mystical. The only issue is you can only go once with your park ticket. It’s fabulous and only really best experience in person. It’s the quintessential view of the moai which you imagine when you are planning a trip to easter...More

For anyone at all interested in the early culture of Easter Island, this is a must visit. The mountain quarry where all the moat were carved from the volcanic stone is as informative as any place on Rapa Nui, and hugely evocative. The half buried...More

If you've seen pictures of heads buried in the ground and that's formed your impression of Easter Island, this is where they came from. Dozens of them in various states of completion, including some not fully cut from the rock. Very impressive and creepy, even...More
