One of the most isolated and mysterious islands of the world. It was on my bucket list and always wanted to go there to see the Moai's, finally made it out there here on this year's South America trip. Only stayed 3 days / 2 nights here but saw and learned a lot about the island's history and its people.
There's no extra explanation needed for the Easter Island. A small Polynesian island off Chilean coast, Easter Island is land like no other. The strong heritage and culture is enough to get your attention. The iconic moai statues are everywhere in the island, and we still don't know everything about them. The best way to see the island is by foot and bike. It's small enough to see everything by slow-travel. Don't rush; feel the energy of the land.
Since i'm from Sudamerica, going to an island near New Zealand and similar places was a suberb chance to get to know another culture. If you speak spanish, it is easier to feel comfortable in this magic place. Take care of your budget because it is an all-around expensive experience.
Easter Island is an amazing trip. It takes a bit of travel to reach since it's one of the most remote islands in the world, but once you are there you're in for a treat if you're the outdoorsy sort of person. There's not much to do but hike, enjoy the scenery, and eat some of the best seafood you will ever find. The tuna dishes in the restaurants were amazing.
