“It's pretty cool to be at the Ecuator!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

We've all heard about the equator and the hemispheres, etc. This was like your history and geography class coming to life! It's a nice place to visit and say you've been, not super exciting, but certainly something to do. You can see some ruins and experience what Ecuadorian life was like in various eras. The tour guides have a few tourist-y tricks to show you like balancing an egg on the equator or how water drains differently on the equator. This is a good attraction for adults and kids. Like many attractions in Quito, it was priced right...just a couple of bucks.
Be sure to take your picture!
