ChileEASTERN ISLANDS

Easter Island, also known as Rapa Nui, is a mesmerizing and remote destination that captivates travelers from around the world. Located in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, this small volcanic island is famous for its enigmatic stone statues, known as moai, which stand majestically against a backdrop of stunning natural beauty. As a tourist destination, Easter Island offers a unique blend of archaeological wonders, Polynesian culture, and breathtaking landscapes.

Visitors can explore the archaeological sites of Rano Raraku, where the moai were carved, and Ahu Tongariki, which showcases a row of restored statues standing proudly against the horizon.
