Depart from your hotel in Hanga Roa and venture to a traditional hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Begin with an enchanting welcome ceremony in the picturesque pagoda; awaken your senses to the sound of melodious live music and sip a sweet fruity cocktail as you absorb your surroundings, even opting to get your face marked with a traditional kiea pigment.  

Then, gather around a traditional pit for an enthralling umu pae presentation; gain fascinating insight in the Rapa Nui tradition of cooking food on top of molten volcanic stones. Watch as an experienced chef prepares food in this ancient method, wrapping tender meat in banana leaves and leaving it to cook perfectly atop the natural heat source. Try out traditional dance steps while the food cooks and enticing aromas permeate the air. 

Appease an appetite for authenticity with a delicious umu pae meal prepared according the traditional cooking methods; savor the rich flavor of slow-cooked sausage, ribs and pork before tucking into appetizing accompaniments of carrots, squash and sweet potato. Enjoy the tantalizing and tender taste of simmered vegetable stews, seasoned rice, crisp salads and fresh bread while sipping on a selection of complimentary beverages. 

Satiated, take your seat in the elegant ballroom and prepare for the impending spectacle; gasp as Rapa Nui culture is brought to life with a series of spellbinding dances, songs and costumes. Watch dynamic dances and listen to energetic chants as the cultural extravaganza unfolds before your eyes. 

Relax during the journey back to your hotel, where the exciting excursion concludes.

My husband and I purchased this dinner and show packeage for our first night on Rapa Nui. It was a wonderful introduction to the island's culture. We thoroughly enjoyed it!! The food was good and plentiful. No regrets!!

There was nothing special for this if you think about the price. It was good, but they forgot to take me to my hotel in the end. Gosh!

Overall, the performance was well-done, the food was good and plentiful, the service was excellent. Was glad that the explanations were in both Spanish and English as well as some Rapa Nui. Downsides were that the dinner was rather rushed...felt as if we stood in line for the buffet longer than we had time to eat before being hustled into the performance. The driver who picked us up at the hotel, drove way too fast and erratically for the small streets he, obviously, was in a big hurry to arrive, but was unsafe in his driving. And, lastly, we had no choice other than red/white wine of drinks...no bar where we could order drinks of our own choosing offering beer options, something simple other than pisco sours, even if the cost was extra, would have been preferable.

Dinner is buffet-style and fairly good. There's even a decent amount of options for non-seafood eaters! The performers were incredibly personable and spoke so many different languages. The only downside was the show portion--the other patrons were incredibly pushy had a grandma body-check me so she got a front-row seat and we ended up near to the back. Since the floor isn't sloped a lot, my view of the show was pretty limited at times since I'm 4'11. The bigger issues we had were less the fault of the venue and more the fault of some incredibly entitled, pushy, and loud groups of senior tours. Overall, the show is worth it although I am told it is incredibly similar to what you'll find on other Polynesian islands.

This activity was listed as being in English. Unfortunately, my husband and I were the only English speaking amongst 70-80 Spanish speaking; thus very little was in English. A few lines were spoken in English, and I perceived there was a much more detailed explanation in Spanish. No instructions for seating were given in English. At the end of the show, we got back on the same van, with the same driver who had brought us; assuming it was taking us back to the hotel. After everyone else was taken to their hotels, the driver was very angry at us, yelling at us in Spanish. It seemed that he had no plans to take us back (our hotel was not listed on his sheet-he kept pointing to his list). He eventually did take us back, but drove very fast. The food was good and clearly a lot of prep work was done with a minimal staff. The Show itself was similar in content to other Polynesian shows seen elsewhere. The driver yelling at us and lack of English speaking ruined the experience for us.
