  • Isn't that exciting but if you have time it is important to understand many things about life on the island and on houses in upturned boat. In addition, all classical tours pass through here.

  • You can find large petroglyphs here related to the ocean, fish, canoes, etc. Path is well marked and it is one of the better examples of signage / information.
  • The quarry of mauais. You can see them being cut from the rocks.
  • worth going there
  • The name of Easter Island was given by Jakob Roggenveen, a Dutch navigator who discovered officially the island April 5, 1722. Since that day was Easter Friday, Roggenveen called it "Paaschen Eyland", name which was then literally translated to other languages and that is which has endured above others.

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.
