Easter Island a destination
The only problem with stopping at Easter Island on a cruise is that one doesn’t spend enough time there to see everything [“Going Stone Crazy,” by Millie Ball, April 5].
It is far from anywhere, but a trip there combined with either the Galápagos Islands or Machu Picchu is reasonable.
The airport has a long runway, and there are flights from Lima, Peru, and Santiago, Chile.
We highly recommend the eco-friendly (albeit not cheap) Explora Hotel, where we stayed in January 2013.
The accommodations are comfortable, the bar is open, the staff is friendly, and the guides knowledgeable. D F
