Easter Island or Rapa Nui, is a speck of land in the middle of the Pacific that was annexed by Chile in the late 1800s. The island is populated by Polynesian people of the same descent as Hawaiian and Cook Islanders.

Best of Easter Island
The most famous landmark of Easter Island is the Moai, giant stone statues that stand in silent tribute to the island’s history. Many of these statues were toppled during wars, but some have been raised back into place and are very popular with visitors. The white sand beaches of Anakena and Ovahe are hidden gems and sport palm trees imported from Tahiti. Diving is popular, and because of its extensive cave system, spelunking is a great attraction of the island.
Tips for Visiting Easter Island
Public transportation is not available, but taxis are very cheap, and rental cars are plentiful. To visit all of the archaeological sites of the island, a rental car is your best bet. To get there, start your journey with LATAM and arrive refreshed and ready.
