Trip Planner: South America / Ecuador / Pichincha Province / Quito / San Antonio de Pichincha / Mitad Del Mundo
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). Put Mitad Del Mundo at the forefront of your travel plans using our Quito trip app.

The middle of the world monument with 0°0'0": zero degrees, zero minutes and zero seconds is unmistakable. You will need to pay $5 to get in. Inside the monument is a history, science and indigenous education, until you get to the top and see the views on all sides: North, West, South, and East. There is a patch for Llamas, don't know why but people are crazy about the Llamas. If you ask me, the best parts are the chocolate and alpaca wool from Ecuador. There are plenty of souvenir shops around. The very first thing you notice when entering the park is the well manicured park with statues and the sounds of birds.
Very educational, many.things to see and do. Lots of picture opportunities. Could have easily spent 4 to.6 hours here. Took the grey line tours. Was inexpensive and.easy.
