Regardless of the name its like an open museum with the added bonus of cool geographic features (like lava flow caves) and sparkling clear waters. The massive moai were amazing and we were lucky enough to run into the director of archaeology doing some photography and measurements on the latest dig and he showed us a newly excavated moai and where in the mountain it came from, explaining what they found etc. Oh and flying there and back 1st class was an experience in itself!
