The furthest border in South America, Rapa Nui (native language), or Easter Island, is an absurdly fascinating place. Isolated from the world, it is located 3,500 kilometers from the continental part of Chile, with its Polynesian roots and landscapes worthy of paintings by the painter Pablo Picasso, of great beauty.
Mysterious and fascinating, the place has pink sand beaches, volcanoes and, of course, its more than 1000 moai, huge statues carved in volcanic stones, from 1 to 10 meters high (weighing up to 80 tons). The statues are scattered throughout the island and are silent witnesses to a complex society that has practically disappeared.
The most sought after tours in Rapa Nui are those that pass through the Rano Kau and Rano Raraku volcanoes and the ceremonial town of Orongo; Anakena beach with its own moais; and Hanga Roa artisan market.
