Travel Blogs from Easter Island
... Santiago, we boarded our last leg of the trip that took just over 5.5 hours till we touched down in the tiny airport of Easter Island. We rented a vehicle and as soon as we picked up our luggage a nice gentleman from the rental car was waiting to hand us the keys. We found our way to our hotel, dropped our bags and immediately went out to see some sites. Over the next five days we immersed ourselves into the culture, sounds, dance, food and magic of the island. This ...
... out was very expensive (prohibitively so for the locals as well, sadly). We did a supermarket shop and went and chilled out at a enclosed rock beach. While Anj read her book, I jumped into the cool waters and had a bit of a splash around. As soon as I got out, there was a bit of excitement in the enclosed bay. I went to inquisite, to find that a friendly little turtle had floated in, looking to chomp on some algae! I then saw a local ...
... the water. The podiums on the water were supposed to be their final resting place where they were supposed to protect their ancestors and the intruders from coming on the island. It really is pretty intriguing to be here. These statues are all unique. Everyone is different. Some are small, some a big. By big I mean about 40 feet tall and weighing up to 80 tons. This civilization must have been very advanced in the world. It was said that they ...
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 ...

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.
