Isla de Pascua

La Isla de Pascua en Chile

Evelyn Silva

En nuestra serie, Las maravillas naturales de América Latina, visitamos el desierto de sal de Uyuni en Bolivia y vistamos el glaciar Perito Moreno en Santa Cruz, Argentina.  Este mes los llevaremos a visitar otros lugares que impresionan a los viajeros por su belleza natural. Hoy visitaremos la isla de Pascua, ubicada en el extremo sur del continente  en el océano Pacífico. La isla de Pascua es la isla más grande que compone el grupo de la Polinesia pero pertenece al territorio continental de Chile.  A pesar de poseer una belleza natural incuestionable, la isla de Pascua es uno de los destinos turísticos favoritos del mundo entero debido al misterio y la permanente incógnita que envuelven a un grupo de estatuas gigantescas localizadas en el Parque Nacional Rapa Nui, declarado patrimonio de la humanidad por la Unesco en 1995.
