Travel Blogs from Easter Island
... species of flora, both theories have merit. Records show that the first inhabitants of the island arrived around 400-700AD. This timing matches the time frame from when the Polynesians migrated through the area. The local arts and crafts and traditional music and dance also provide strong links to there being a link to Polynesia.

... By arriving in the theater where tender assignments are made an hour early, we managed to get on the first one to leave. Some passengers who had hired independent tours didn't get off the ship for two and a half hours. We were told later that it was pandemonium in the theater; glad we missed it.
The two day visit to Easter Island was orchestrated by our native guide, Lulo, who made it very special for the fourteen of us in his van. We were very ...
