Buy your Rapa Nui National Park ticket at the airport, $80/USD--cash only! The moai are amazing, especially at the quarry and the beachside group of 15 moai. It's jut unbelievable how they pulled and moved these giant statues so far.

The area in front of the platform is expansive and mostly grass, with a few rocky patches - perfect for relaxing in the afternoon sun, or meditating in front of a very impressive set of reconstructed Moai.

The National Park has in recent years been managed by the local inhabitants and they take the task of protecting the ruins very seriously. A ticket for 10 days is $US80.00 and this allows you to visit most sites at least once. Some are restricted...More

A friend of mine was just there and said there were very few mosquitoes. It's usually very windy there and the wind keeps them away. Just in case, have a mosquito repellent with you.
