As others have said you can't come to Easter Island and not be amazed by the experience of visiting Ahu Tongariki, it is a spectacular site. Be sure to allow sufficient time to explore the area too fully appreciate the magnitude of the statues.

The only place has 15 status in the island. Weather is changeable here. You might have heavy rain in the morning but the sky turns clear in the afternoon.

The park rangers here are very friendly. My partner and I visited this place TWICE because it was that impressive. On our second visit, there were two stray puppies near the park ranger hut and we took one home with us to USA!

There are 16 large Moai on this site which was restored by the Japanese after the statues were knocked down by a tsunami. It has the largest number of Moai on the island and they are larger statues than most of the other sites. They...More

We were there last month (3/2015). They drive on the right side of the road. I saw a car rental place right in town but don't know what they cost. If I were you, I'd take a small group or private tour. The tour guides have... More
