DAY 01: EASTER ISLAND: Navigation to the Motus
From the hotel we will set off on vehicles to the Port of Hanga Piko. We will begin our excursion with a visit to three isles, Motu Nui, Motu Iti and Motu Kao Kao, in front of the ceremonial hamlet of Orongo. Partakers on the competition of the Birdman had to swim towards Motu Nui Isle to retrieve the first egg of a seagull. Then we will navigate towards the coast, sightseeing the Town of Hanga Roa with its coves until we reach the ceremonial site of Tahai. There we will feel like the first European sailors of the XVIII century, when they first met with the monumental statues of Rapa Nui. Return to Hanga Piko and the hotel.

Easter Island has a mild weather, rather warm, during the summer (December through March) and somewhat cool during the winter. Include a light parka by all means or a watertight cape to cope with the frequent rain showers, sunscreen, bathing suit, sun cap and a warming coat for the winter.
There is fresh water in almost the entire territory, although, it is advisable to drink bottled water in rural areas; more though if you are not used to tap water.
We can find several hospitals on the island, though one of the most recommended is the Hanga Roa Hospital, which has all the necessary equipment to perform surgeries and respond to emergency situations 24 hours a day. Besides, it has dental and pharmaceutical services. Despite this medical backup, we strongly recommend you to bring all your medications of frequent use with you.
Chilean cuisine is very diverse. Among its typical dishes we have: Empanada de Pino (dough stuffed with onion, meat, raisins and olives), Pastel de Choclo (made mainly of corn with meat, eggs and olives), Porotos Granados (tender potatoes cooked with gourd and corn), Cazuela de Ave o Vacuno (clear soup of chicken or beef with boiled vegetables), besides those typical of each region.
Lastly, you can not fail to taste the exquisite Mote con Huesillos, a dessert elaborated from a boiled fruit and mote wheat.
