Circular adobe structures huddle together like muddy bubble-wrap in the ruins of Tulor, the oldest excavated village in the region. It's just a short drive west of San Pedro, or jump on your bike and get peddling!
There's probably one main reason for coming to Easter Island: the maoi, those imposing, mysterious statues carved from compressed volcanic ash. They are scattered throughout the island, and the great mystery lies in how they were moved around after they were carved (around AD 1000).
