Easter Island

Culture, adventure and a paradise destination to rest are just a part of what awaits you on Easter Island. Come discover its intriguing moai and the authentic spirit of this culture still present in its people!

Visit the Rapa Nui National Park or tepito or tehenua, declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Rest on its pink, sandy beaches and discover its volcanoes and prairies on your bike, on horseback or by foot. Find the most absolute silence in the island’s caverns, explore the ocean flora and fauna diving in its warm waters or go surfing on its waves.

Soak up the Rapa Nui culture by interacting with its people. Get to know their language and amazing food. Fall in love with their exotic dances, music and Polynesian clothing.

If you are looking for an intense cultural experience, visit the island for the Tapati festival that happens every February. There you’ll experience the typical traditions of the Rapa Nui people, like painting your body as their ancestors did and enjoying some amazing competitions.
