  • Another closed attraction in Chile. It is still very difficult to get into country and yet it is very dirty. I mean Chile tourism ministry needs to know that they are not top of the food chain. A lot of depend on this industry. You are making the poor, poorer.
  • Super
  • It is a very special thing to be able to see a real moai from Rapa Nui.A small museum well informef.
