The Rapa Nui National Park occupies more than 40% of the territory, and includes tourist and archaeological sites such as:
ORONGO: It is a ceremonial citadel with ancestral constructions and petroglyphs, built at the top of the Rano Kau volcano.
ANA KAI TANGATA: Roughly translated into English as “cave that eats men,” recollects the cannibalism lived at some point in Rapa Nui history. In this place you can see spectacular rock paintings.
AHU AKIVI: An imposing altar with seven Moais, located at the center of the island.
To access Rapa Nui Park, you must buy a pass that extends for 10 days, for both national and foreign tourists, which you can buy directly on your arrival at the MataVeri airport or at the Mau Henua offices, who manage the place.
