Easter Island

Mysterious, ancient, and remote, this Polynesian island in the south Pacific is famous for hundreds of stone statues called moai, some reaching 35 feet and weighing 100 tons. Visit the volcanic crater where the early Rapanui people quarried the stone, and the stone village of Orongo, the ceremonial center of the island’s birdman cult.

The climate of Easter Island is subtropical maritime. The lowest temperatures occur in July and August and the highest in February. Winters are relatively mild. The rainiest month is April, though the island experiences year-round rainfall. Easter Island's isolated location exposes it to winds which help to keep the temperature fairly cool. Occasionally, heavy rainfall and rainstorms strike the island. These occur mostly in the winter months (June–August).
