Nice pictures in this place, next to it there are many shopping centers, but the really great thing is near by a museum called "mitad del mundo" that you cannot miss!!!

It is a very beautiful monument. We did not go into any of the attractions, but it was nice to walk around.

This was a great place. I was just sorry that we didn't have a lot of time to discover everything. This is really a full day to take everything in.

My husband and I visited both Mitad del Mundos. There is the Mitad del Mundo recognized by the French which can be recognized by the enormous monument and beautiful groups. This site had endless restaurants and shops. There was also a cultural center where there were several shows going on with dancers or singers. I could see families spending more... More

After going to the real site of the equator, this was a let down. This was okay for it's time before equipment determined the equator to be a bit further north. See the real equator site with it's museum and guides explaining the history and cultures of the time.

I really loved the construction and the way the entire area was laid out with flags from the world. Walking around the monument was spectacular and almost a spiritual experience to think that it was right on the equator. A wonderful place to visit.

Getting to the Mitad del Mundo is not easy. We took a taxi $5, to this shopping mall on the north side of Quito, and from there we took a bus that said Mitad del Mundo on the dashboard. Once at Mitad city, we took another taxi $5 to the Pulu volcano edge and by-passed the Mitad del Mundo monument.... More

Good for photos of standing with your legs either side of the equator but not much else. We got the obligatory stamp in the passport and then went next door for the proper experiments.

Ok, so we all know that GPS kind of ruined this amazing tourist attraction... but for real. I won't tell if you don't tell.

My husband and I visited the park recently and enjoyed the sites. It's pretty cool to stand on the equatorial line whether it truly is in the right place or not. Here you can take an elevator up to the top of the monument and see the beautiful views it has to offer. On the way down there are exhibits... More
