Description of tour to Ahu Akivi

This tour allows to know and understand the connection of the ancient inhabitants of Easter Island with the Universe. The tour includes ceremonial centers erected in the central area of ​​the island during the last Moai construction period, the most important of the Rapa Nui culture. They emphasize megalithic archaeological sites that show how astronomy determined the disposition of the giant statues and the platforms in which they are held, with which it is possible to enter into the worldview of the ancient Polynesian navigators that populated Easter Island. All the points visited incorporate old sites that were created and used during the end of the Ahu-Moai phase. These sites represent various cultural developments of the Rapa Nui history, all strategically deployed around ceremonial centers. "Looking at the stars" includes three restored sites: Ahu Huri to Urenga, Ahu to Kivi, Ahu Vai Teka and the Puna Pau quarry, where are the most attractive Pukao (red hats or headgear that crown the heads of some Moai).
