Mitad del Mundo, San Antonio de Pichincha

(3.9/5 based on 2,000+ 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.

  • Many tourists, but still an exciting visit seen with the historic glasses. It is certainly worth a visit, but not a place you can spend more than a few hours.

  • If they go to Quito is a must-see, it is historically and geographically a unique place. It is the Equator and these literally stood in the two hemispheres, has some very educational museums and there is a challenge of the egg that I recommend you do so. Admission is $7.50 and $10.50 if you want a true cocoa chocolate.

  • Special time of encounter with the geography of the world. Don't forget to visit the Museum and the egg test. San a certificate if you can swing it. A life experience

  • Rather, city Mitad del Mundo, a set of buildings organized as a city, the Planetarium, the monument, a place of recreation, where else you can spend an entire day, and bring wonderful souvenirs...
