In the region of Valparaiso , Easter Island is Chile's nexus with Polynesia, a place that is far from the traditions of the continent, with a captivating culture and beautiful natural landscapes. Due to its natural beauty and traditions, Easter Island or Rapa Nui is one of the most attractive places in the world. It is located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, forming part of the continent of Oceania, but at the same time being part of the insular territory of Chile.
There is no other inhabited place in the world that is so isolated in the sea as Chilean Polynesia. That's how unique Rapa Nui is (Easter Island). And it is this very condition that gives it its authenticity and an aura of fascinating mystery.
Discovering Rapa Nui is something wonderful, its beaches with pink sand, volcanoes and prairies that make it up, and its more than 1,000 Moai that were silent witnesses of a complex society.
Plan your trip responsibly and get to know the new Law n° 21.070 that regulates the rights to stay, reside and move to and from the territory of Rapa Nui for a maximum period of 30 days. This law applies only to Chileans and foreigners, not to members of the Rapa Nui people or current residents.
Requirements to enter Rapa Nui
* Copy of the accommodation reservation (duly authorized to provide tourist service), with the address or invitation letter of a person belonging to the Rapa Nui people or other authorized (art.6 Law)
