Your first day is a smooth way to change gears from what you might’ve gotten used to on the mainland. Slip on your flip flops, proudly don your lei, and watch one heck of a sunset.
You’ll see a number of moai atop of their ceremonial platforms, well-preserved examples of the rock foundation used to build the houses shaped like boats, and stone chicken houses.
You’ll get to dive deeper into the history of Rapa Nui and you’ll also get to walk the coast around Hanga Roa towards a cave with a name that translates to Cannibal Cave.
A classic day tour to complement the Moai Monuments Tour with Green Island Tours, where you’ll go deeper into the culture, history, and even geography with a tour called Historic Pathways Tour.
A visit to Easter Island wouldn’t be complete without going to a traditional Rapa Nui dance show. The most popular one on the island is called Kari Kari. For an hour, you’ll be treated to an authentic showcase of Rapanui dance and music.
Off the coast of Easter Island is a mysterious moai wrapped in coral, and there are also gold-sand beaches to take advantage of.
