Worth a quick day trip and if you're a science nerd its cool. Since I was in Quito for a while I enjoyed it, but if you have limited time, I'm not sure I'd go just take a snapshot of you on the equator.

We figured this would be just a tourist stop where you take a picture on the equator line, which we did, but it was much more than that. First, we took a $10 ride, sponsored by the hostel where the Free Walking Tour of Quito...More
