“Go To the Equator and Have a Laugh at Its Quirky Attractions La Mitad del Mundo (the Middle of the World) is one big tourist attraction near Quito. This is where the equator passes through Ecuador. It’s all at latitude zero, just north of Quito. Is Going To the Equator Really Worth It? The equator attractions are completely touristy, out of the way from central Quito, and the main monument isn’t even actually on the equator. Despite these downsides, going to the equator can still be a quirky and fun thing to do in Quito. It’s a half-day diversion outside of the city. For those with only one day or two days in Quito, perhaps the equator attractions could be something to skip. But if you’re in Quito for more than a few days, it’s almost necessary to add it to your Quito itinerary. Come see what all the fuss is about and snap a few equator-selfies! A pathway leads to the Mitad del Mundo equator monument Understand there are two separate Quito equator attractions: Ciudad Mitad del Mundo, Museo Solar Intiñan Quito Equator Attraction #1: Ciudad Mitad del Mundo The equator monument at Ciudad del Mundo isn't actually on the equator as proven by GPSMitad del Mundo is the location of the main equator monument and that big yellow equator line to snap an equator selfie on top of. Just realize that modern GPS technology shows that the monument was actually erected about 230 meters south of the actual equator. Oops! They haven’t changed the line, nor is there any mention of the inaccuracy at the famed monument. It’s close enough. The monument here is the main attraction. But there’s an entire “equator city” that surrounds it. That’s known as the Ciudad Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the World City). Here, visitors will find loads of tourist shops, cafes, a planetarium, a train ride, and other little attractions.”
