  • The best way to visit the site and view the petroglyphs is do a guided trek through the northern part of the island. There you can have a more peaceful contact with nature and with numerous moai (fallen) minors (of older times), foundations of "houses" and petroglyphs that are not seen so often the hottest side of the island. Worth venturing out there.

  • This is a gem of a stop with some very interesting petroglyphs depicting life of the early Polyensian people - especially with respect to canoes and fishing. God explanmation signs will guide you.  more »
  • Pass it on the way to the beach of Anakena, unfortunately the site is abandoned. There was no one to look after the park entrance this attraction, as well as taking care not to touch the peteogrifos. If he's so careful with the moais and very little with this important part of the history of the island.

Where to stay in Hanga Roa

The main urban area on the island, Hanga Roa houses the vast majority of Easter Island's accommodations. While the number of choices remains pretty limited considering the island's popularity, the range of lodgings suits a variety of travelers, from budget-conscious backpackers to those seeking luxury. Relaxed guesthouses and hostels provide decent rooms to get your head down for the night after a long day's exploration. Eco-lodges and more exclusive hotels tend to be positioned outside of the main urban area, providing airport pick-up services, ocean views, and swimming pools.
