  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Easter Island is one of the world's most isolated inhabited islands.

    The large stone statues, or moai, for which Easter Island is world-famous, were carved from 1100–1680. A total of 887 monolithic stone statues have been inventoried on the island and in museum collections so far.
    DAILY FLIGHTS FROM SANTIAGO TO EASTER ISLAND WITH LAN CHILE AND ONCE A WEEK A LAN CHILE FLIGHT FROM AND TO TAHITI( SCL-IPC-PPT-IPC-SCL) FLIGHTS AREN'T CHEAP.
    YOU CAN REACH EASTER ISLAND ONLY BY AIRPLANE FROM LATAM , NOT BY BOAT.
    Daily ONLY from Santiago and once a week from Tahiti.
    Important:
    It is difficult to get cheap flights to Easter Island. An airline ticket coming and going from Santiago costs around 500-1000USD with Lan Chile.
