Know all about Easter Island
Easter Island is one of the most remote island in the world, a territory with a rich and complex culture, comparable to the great megalithic civilizations. The nature contains, like a great stage, all the drama, energy and beauty transmitted by its colossal, silent, enigmatic and overwhelming figures: the Moai. These sculptures of stone, from 2 to 10 meters high, these impressive sculptures are the great symbols of Easter Island.
Behold the sunrise on the top of the extinct volcano Ahu Tongariki, with the sun silhouetting the Moai statues, walk along the Anakena beach, or go scuba diving in the Pacfic. Noteworthy is The Rapa Nui National Park which occupies most of the island.
The only urban center of the island is the town of Hanga Roa, cultural, social and economic center of Easter Island. In mid-February, the most important festival, Tapati Rapa Nui, is held where its inhabitants compete in music, dance, culture and sport contests. All in an atmosphere of beauty and aesthetics typical of this town.
A culture is also defined by its way of cooking and here the Polynesian dish par excellence is the Curanto. It is cooked in a hole in the ground, covered with hot volcanic stones and banana leaves. Meat, fish, pork, poultry and vegetables are separated with these banana leaves, which allows a very special way of cooking. This delicacy is also served in banana leaves and can be taken in a restaurant run by inhabitants of the island, where the recipe passed on from generation to generation.
Easter Island will leave you breathless and you will create memories forever. Stay in the best boutique hotel of the island and you´ll be assured of the best possible time.
