Mitad del Mundo, San Antonio de Pichincha
(3.9/5 based on 1,800+ 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.

  • Pena as an important attraction and pride to Ecuadorians charge so much per person. It is no longer the price within reach of people of limited resources who want to go walking with his children and their families.

  • Very interesting to be in "half the world". The experience of being in the line of Ecuador makes us think of very interesting issues. In addition, several indigenous legends are known with this tour.

  • If you're in Quito you can not go to this place, inside the monument there is plenty enough educational information about the movements of the Earth, and because it is called the equator, also the effects of the coriolis effect. There are shops and restaurants, I recommend to buy the ticket that allows you to enter all the rooms around the Central magnificent.

  • 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...
