“Is it possible to visit Easter Island without spending a lot of money?”
This is a question we've been asked quite frequently since our trip to the island. To answer this question in a single statement, the best we can say this: It depends on what you define as “a lot“.
If you are looking at spending under $50/day, Easter Island (also known as Isla de Pascua or Rapa Nui) will not be the place to visit unless you happen to fall within a very unique circumstance that we'll talk about later on.
For those who have a slightly higher budget, there are still many ways on how to get to Easter Island without breaking the bank too much.
