Rano Raraku, Easter Island, Valparaiso Region, Chile
After viewing the scattered Moai on the slopes of Rano Raraku, do the (easy) hike up and into the crater. It's a totally different feeling in there, all reeds in water and grazing wild horses. Easy to imagine the world without civilization.

Explora Rapa Nui sits on the southeastern side of Easter Island, roughly six miles from the main village of Hanga Roa. The modern lodge is made from stone and wood, with design features including curved roofs supported by dark wood stilts. Huge...

Located 8 kilometers outside Easter Island's main town, Hanga Roa, the Explora lodge, part of the sustainable eco-lodges with sister properties in Atacama and Patagonia, is secluded from the hubbub and a perfect base to explore the island. The...

Okay sure, there are some Moai here and they're great. But this is also the viewpoint from where I watched the best sunset of my life (so far). This photo is only the start.

When visitors travel to Easter Island they are naturally anxious to see all of the amazing moai monoliths. The carved volcanic figures are indeed magnificent, but be sure to save time to see the natural beauty of the island also. The Rano Kao...

Jeez, could the water be any better? This is an awesome sandy spot for swimming, snorkeling, scuba-ing in calm, balmy water with the backdrop of a row of the famous moai figures. Hit up one of the couple beach snack shacks for a tuna and cheese...

Good luck finding this beach. Some locals took me in their pick-up truck and they could barely remember the right dirt roads to reach it. Still, amazing.

Orongo can be reached by a steep drive or a path hike up the Rano Kau volcano. It's a historic village once home to those who followed the practices of the Birdman cult. Don't worry, you'll learn all about that on Easter Island. Go for the views...

Rano Kau, Easter Island, Valparaiso Region, Chile
Save a good half-day for a hike up the side of Rano Kai volcano and the exploration of the Orongo village on the rim. It takes only an hour to go from the street to the top, if you move fast, but once there, you'll find more paths to walk for...

This is a great (albeit pricey) little bar inside the Easter Island Airport Terminal. It's smart and two-sided, with the bar separating the public side from the post-security, airside half. Head through security and pop up here for a pre-flight...

If you'll be spending more than a couple nights on Easter Island, hit up this grocery store--the only one on the island larger than a bodega. We recommend the island-brewed Mahina beer. Who knows where they out a brewery on this island?

It's not in town, but located closer to the end of the airport's runway, just past the harbor of Hanga Piko. They saw they serve the best ceviche, and I agree (plus the lobster isn't too shabby). Limited hours and only reachable via gravel road....

Hanga Piko, Isla de Pascua, Región de Valparaíso, Chile
Hanga Piko is a small harbor that services the ships when that anchor off the island when they come to deliver goods. It's easy to walk through, with a single Moai watching over things. This looks like the newest development area for vacation...

It's very likely that this is the most high-falutin' restaurant on all of Easter Island, judging by the decor, price and gourmet cuisine. Absolutely worth it if you're here several days and want a proper white tablecloth meal.

Perhaps the most luxurious of the hotels near town on Easter Island, the Hanga Roa has sunset-facing patios on every room and a sunset cocktail is included every evening. And bike rentals are free!

One of Rapa Nui's (Easter Island's) famous Birdman petroglyphs. I don't think I can type the history of the Cult of the Birdman in 1500 characters, but I highly encourage you to Google it. Interesting stuff- a physical challenge that would today's...

Fresh fish and pisco sours are the common cuisine in Chile and Rapa Nui, aka Easter Island, but Kaimana Inn and Restaurant provides fresh, local meals by helpful and friendly staff along with guidance and travel organization. They organized a...

Easter Island is one if the most remote places on the planet. And there's no better time to embrace that feeling than at sunrise below the 15 massive moai of Tongariki. About a 25 minute drive from town, the sun rises through the statues, changing...

Mikafe is a tiny breakfast/lunch/dessert spot right on the Quay in Hanga Roa. If your hotel doesn't include breakfast, go here for some scrumptious desayuno or hold out for whatever the special flavor gelato will be in the evening.

This is it. Good luck finding postcards, but this is where you come to buy the stamps and mail items to receive the coveted Rapa Nui postmark.

This "mini-mall" of Easter Island souvenirs is pretty quiet, but reliable for buying postcards or little carved Moai statues.
