Easter Island on LAN via Lima - where to exchange $$ to Pesos?

Jump to last reply

Thinking about doing Easter Island on my own, as a single destination trip....LAN flights through Lima, Peru rather than Santiago...wondering about exchanging US Dollars to Pesos before I get there as I have read ATMs are not always working on Easter Island. Mot advise exchanging money in Santiago, but I won't be going through there.

Also trying to figure out where to stay and how long to allow for a decent visit. Considering staying at HareSwiss (great Trip Advisor reviews), but it is out of town a bit. Not sure if that will really be an issue. Since Easter Island is my only destination this trip, I have flexibility on dates (thinking August 15-19 due to air fares). Wanting to keep budget reasonable. Any feedback welcome.
