TravelPod Member ReviewsIorana Hotel Easter Island
The hotel is about 10 minutes drive from the airport and about a 15 minute walk to the town of Hanga Roa. Rooms are clean and comfortable with a mini refrigerator. No TV and no wi-fi access. However, from our room we had a view of the ocean that was to die for. There is a small restaurant which supplies a substantial breakfast buffet and dinners are also served here. We would recommend this to all.

It just a bunch of tourist shops that open and close when they want along with some restaurants.

... green the island is and how beautiful the water around the island is.
Our next stop was the Rano Kao volcano which has a bigger caldron which holds the water source for the town. Near this caldron is the Orango area. This was an area used for the Bird Man competition which was a ceremonial event where men climbed down a steep cliff and swan to an island to get the first egg laid by the birds who used to nest there. The ...
The cloud had descended so we saw no point in going back up the volcano to the Termas. It was quite cold too.
We ate a breakfast of some Chilean veggie product that we couldn't take with us. The veggie sausages were particularly inedible - pink, floppy...eurghhh! (Made Mrs McCartney's sausage seem vaguely palatable.) We looked for accommodation in Constitucion and found the weirdly named Neuromanagement apartments and ...
We've done quite a lot since our last blog post, but unfortunately Rose is no longer with us. Don't worry-she's not dead. She's just gone to do some fun volunteering. The iguazu falls were breathtaking, and we were really surprised by how different they looked from each view point (there were many). The wildlife in the Parc Nacional Iguazu was also really cool; we saw Capybaras, Caimans, raccoons and loads of ...
