Rapa Nui Parque Nacional, Easter Island
Set on an isolated and scarcely vegetated volcanic island, Rapa Nui Parque Nacional lures visitors with its mysterious history and monumental shrines and stone figures known as moai. Polynesians came to the island in big canoes around 300 CE, bringing many elements of their culture. As a tribute to the important ancestors of each clan, these newcomers created moai, which became taller and more stylized as time went by. Other attractions include two large craters, a pink sand beach, and a restored Orongo village with rock engravings on a mountain cliff. Though you can explore the island by foot, vehicle, or bike, some places, such as its highest peak Maunga Terevaka, can only be reached by horse.
