Visitor Statistics for the Rapa Nui National Park in 2017 / 2018.

The number of visitors to the National Park is measured by the number of entry tickets sold. This measurement covers the period from January of 2017 through December of 2018. The most important information that these statistics offer is a detailed vision of annual tourism in Rapa Nui.

The visitors are principally Chileans, representing a relative majority, but only lightly superior to the number of foreign visitors. The months of June and July present the greatest drop in visitor numbers.  However, it can be said that there does not exist a true low season, but rather a somewhat less high season during the previously mentioned months.
In summary, the major findings from these statistics are:


  1. Visitor numbers have increased since Ma´u Henua took over the park administration.
  2. The majority of tourists are domestic Chileans with nearly 54% of the total.
  3. In general, all the months of the year show high number of visitors, except for June and July which show much fewer visits by international tourists.
  4. 10% of the visitors are minors, principally of Chilean origin.
  5. 59% of the visitors are female, which represents an important challenge to offer services that are focused on their needs.
  6. We have an important number of visitors without an accompanying guide, which is another challenge for the care of our heritage.
