Rapa Nui National Park

Located in Easter Island, Rapa Nui National Park is 3700 km away from the coast of the continent, where it takes 7130 hectares of ground. You can only get there by plane, because the ocean is reserved only for bigger ships. The park was created in 1935 and it takes up most of the island, including in its territory sculptures and sacred spots that are important for architecture, culture and nature.

People can see the island by taking walks around; there are several excursion paths in Rano Raraku and in Orongo, which are signalized and feature information for tourists. There are also areas where you can eat in Anakena and in Raro Raraky, where you can find tables, kitchenettes and restrooms.

All over the island you can find many restaurants, hotels, cabins and guest houses where you can spend the night and try exquisite dishes prepared with native products, all administrated by families born and raised in Rapa Nui.

The most beautiful places to visit are Anakena, the largest beach in the island, and Rano Kau Volcano, from where you can see most of the island and the Pacific Ocean in all its glory. Other important places are Orongo (ceremonial village), Ana Kaitangata (cavern), Tahai (ceremonial complexl), Puna Pau (where headdresses are made), Ahu Akivi (7 moai) and Tongariki (15 moai).
