Mitad del Mundo, San Antonio de Pichincha

(3.6/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
Stand between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres at Mitad del Mundo, marked by a compass-like monument erected to show the exact location of the Equator. Stand with one foot on either side of the line for a unique photo opportunity, and get your passport stamped to say you've visited the Earth's midpoint. Here's the thing, though--it's not the real Equator, as the park's designers missed it by about 250 m (820 ft). Arrange your visit to Mitad del Mundo and discover more family-friendly attractions in Quito using our Quito trip itinerary builder.

  • The city mitad del mundo is spectacular I liked everything that I could visit, that if I comment that I joined at 16:00 and boxed not warned me that the main attractions closed at 17:00 that seemed to me a lack of respect since you pay 3 tickets to visit all the places of the city and stayed without seeing pictures of Guayasamín and the Planetarium please instruct the young ladies of the ticket to give a right to national service and foreigners have nothing nice attitude not greet nor answer the greeting, among other things, that leaves you with this sweet and sour taste to visit a place so wonderful like this... I hope in my next trip to see improvements in the attitude of these people...

  • The Zero latitude monument is a little touristy, but it is worth seeing. A line on the ground designating the middle of the world and designating the separation of the Southern and Northern Hemisphere...  more »
  • Although the weather was bad, its Museum and the things that can be learned are definitely very interesting, again
