Take the opportunity to relax at the hotel or choose from a variety of local trips visiting interesting sights related to the aboriginal Rapa Nui people. Discover the archeological complex Te Pito Kura, also called “The Navel of the World,” where a large, perfectly circular stone is said to be the epicenter of the planet's energy. Spend some time at Anakena, the main beach on Easter Island, where the first king of the island landed with his men. See the “Seven Explorers,” beautifully preserved Moai (monolithic human figures), and discover how the ancient islanders connected with celestial and astronomical events.
