There were a great many 'wows' when we saw the Moai across the national park. You have to keep your ticket on you as they are stamped at every site. The sites are generally very quiet and feel quite spiritual.

Easter island is extremely small and quiet and safe. Other than visiting all the archeological ruins there really isn’t much to do there except snorkelling and diving and meandering through the main street looking at the artisans crafts. It is atrociously expensive and when I...More

Taking this entry as essentially being for the visit to Easter Island, it's a no-brainer. Almost all sites in the park have ticket checks (usually by English-speaking staff who will explain a few things), with only a few in Hanga Roa ignored. The price at...More

Currently, the number 1 and 2 places to visit on Easter Island are within the Papa Nui National Park, so shouldn't the park be ranked number 1? I guess it's because certain sites resonate with certain people and the park becomes an afterthought. Let's face...More

Hi Deborah. You have to pay cash (USD) for the park entrance fee. You actually pay the fee at the airport as you enter the country.
