After lunch, our guide will pick you up to take you to the Ahu Akivi, the stone platform, or “ahu,” with the only stone statues, or “moai,” facing towards the ocean. This is a very significant place for the people of the island, as it is related to the legend that gave birth to the Rapa Nui culture and also explains the landing of the Polynesian people on this island. Later you will visit Ana Te Pahu also known as “Cueva de Los Plátanos,” one of the biggest caves of  Rapa Nui.  Finally, you will visit the ceremonial center of Tahai. There you will see the remains of an old village,  the famous Ahu Vai Huri (black water in Rapanui) with its 5 moais, the Ahu Tahai with only one moai that could be the oldest “ahu” in all Rapanui.
