Easter Island is among the world’s 10 most popular islands

Trip Advisor’s Travelers Choice’ 2013 names Easter Island as one of the world’s 10 most popular islands and I couldn’t agree more. Rapa Nui is just mesmerizing. As the New York Time states The most remote of all places on earth, Easter Island has changed little since Thor Heyerdahl described it in “Aku-Aku,” an account of his 1955-56 voyage. See Mois – giant stones 30 to 40 feet tall and weighing up to 70 tons – that have tantalized scientists for decades! See an extraordinary collection of archaeological sites, visit Rano Kau (the ‘nursery’ of the moais), Orongo ceremonial village, Rano Raraku, Anakena Beach, Costa Oeste – Ahu te Peu, and Terevaka. It is a fascinating cultural and archaeological paradise which combines the ancient traditions of a society that, until its discovery in 1722, was unknown to the West for more than a millennium.
