best way to La Mitad del Mundo?

What is the best mode of transportation from Quito. . . bus or taxi? Previous post indicates I might have to transfer the bus. We'll be staying Hotel Mercure Alameda Quito on Amazonas Ave.

Thank you.

"Best" depends on you, your budget, and your time. You would have to get to the Terminal Norte to pick up a bus to La Mitad, one of the "interparoquial" buses; cost is 25 cents. A taxi probably wouldn't cost too much, or your hotel could probably arrange for a private driver to take you there, wait, and drive you back.

We want to go there by bus. Where is the terminal Norte? If we take the bus from the terminal, dose it take us there direct or do we need to transfer? Where do we get off? Where do we buy the tkt, on bus, at the terminal? Thank you.

Terminal Norte is in Carcelén, on Eloy Alfaro. You can take the E.F. bus to get to it. The MdM bus is clearly marked. Pay on the bus.
