Explora en Rapa Nui

Explora en Rapa NuiThe remote island of the South Pacific Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, is the farthest island from any populated land on the planet. It has been a place full of attraction and mystery ever since its discovery. Located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, a distance of 3,700km from the coast of South America, Rapa Nui is a great volcanic cone that was pushed up from the ocean floor to 500 meters above sea level.

This tiny triangle of land, that measures just 166 square km, was the birthplace of a fascinating civilization, of which the moai – giant statues sculpted from rock – play silent witness to this history. Many of the statures today have been re-erected above their ceremonial platforms called ahu, but just decades ago the statues lay toppled over and scattered about the island, much like a battlefield.

Many were left half-finished in the rock quarry of the Rano Raraku Volcano. Today visitors can share with the descendents of this culture, who for generations have maintained their ancestor’s habits and have kept alive their traditions.
