There’s no inhabited spot in the world quite so isolated as Chilean Polynesia. A mere dot in the vast Pacific Ocean, Rapa Nui (Easter Island) is a one-of-a-kind destination whose very remoteness lends it unmistakable authenticity and an aura of mystery. It’s high time to come and uncover its secrets!
Explore Rapa Nui’s pink-sand beaches, its volcanic cones and windswept grasslands, and of course, the monumental moai statues – over 1,000 of them bearing silent witness to a long-lost, complex society.
Discover the intriguing culture of the rapa nui people during Tapati, a traditional festival held in February in which local teams compete in challenges to test their ability in time-honored Easter Island skills.

HAVE TO SAY
Rooms were well done, my son and I enjoyed the meals, the attentiveness of the staff, the open bar, and the planning. Went on many excursions - all covered in the one price as well - hiking, biking, snorkeling, city walks, monument tours, etc. The one thing missing from my perspective: a gym with some weights and machines... (I know... we were active every day, but I like to keep up my program even if I am active in other ways each day)All in all, a great time was had by all. The weather cooperated fully - with sun every day except the last 1/2 day when we wanted a break - and then it rained like crazy!
Explora is an all inclusive resort that provides top notch service, knowledgeable guides and a wonderful architectural setting. There are a number of explorations provided each day from which to choose. The explorations provide options on physical exertion. The dining is excellent with a tasty and varied menu from which to choose.
A dream come true! The best way to experience Easter Island is with Explora Rapa Nui! From the gourmet food, flowing drinks, lovely accommodations and best of all, incredible daily expeditions and knowledgeable guides, it's the most incredible and interesting way to see the sights, explore the island and learn about the culture and history. Highly recommend!!
