...Hi, the "equator" is the imaginary line that runs at 0º 00' 000'' latitude, it´s about 15 miles north of Quito, and its a popular spot for locals and foreigns that visit the city, a classic pic is one shot to people standing with feet in eather hemisphere North & South. Local crafts, food & costumes are offered to visitors in a theme park that surrounds a four stories monument with a etnological museum in its interior.....a taxi cab fare is about USD 45 round trip with a 90 minutes waiting period...the original spot where 18 century scientists measure the earth is on a near hill and an oirginal monument is also in a nearby town, also the french scientists visit a similar spot on the coast of Manabi, near Pedernales, about 85 miles north of the harbor town of Manta, the place where I live, hope you enjoy your visit, LC
One of the topics in tourism detination in Quito city is visit the Equator this trip could be for middle day or a full day, so contact us for more details at , we answer all your questions and requests.
We give you the best and cheap way to go there, take a look:
To add, you need to bring small bills. Nothing larger than a $20. A couple of hundred dollars in one dollar bills would be great. Remember you are visiting a nation with a large percentage of poverty. You will need to take precautions with things like exposing your camera around your neck. It is best to keep all personal items unseen. In addition, take a color copy of your original passport and keep the original passport in the safe at your hotel. Do not carry your wallet full of credit cards. Keep that in the hotel safe too. Some stores/places except credit cards but for the most part Ecuador is a cash and carry sort of place. You also might want to check out the rain forest area of Mindo. It offers lots of outdoor activities and a very relaxing place to go out 2.5 hours outside of Quito. Good Luck.
To go to the Equator you can either take a tour with a travel agency and have a tour guide giving you all the information you may need or adventure on your own and take a bus!! it is really easy to get there... you just have to take a Metrobus for 0.25 cents in America Avenue (from south to north) and go all the way to the final station at La Ofelia, once there you search for the buses going to Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the World) and pay 0.15 cents more... the ride from the station to the entrance of the monument takes approximately 45 minutes.....
Another suggestion is that in addition of visiting the Middle of the World Complex where the monument is placed you should visit the IntiÑan Museum, located outside the complex, just a few meters further to the north, it is a really interesting and interactive museum where you get prove you are standing on the equator by performing some experiments.
If you need any further information or help, I will be pleased to assist you....

Ecuador is cross by the imagenery line of Equator, it divides our country in to hemisphere. While you're in the North of Ecuador you can visit the lakes region in Ibarra, you can go to the most beautifull volcanoes at the Andes Mountains as the Cotopaxi, the Chimborazo, you can go to the Cochasqui ruins, or go to Cotacachi, industrious village in which you can find the most beautifull leather jackets ever and cheap. Or you can make journeys to the rain forest at the east of the north region, but we also have Montañita, the famous beach for surfing and party all night long. Well, Ecuador is just an amazing little country with various ecosistems, beautifull fauna, and also have the unthamed Galapagos Islands in which you can enjoy the wonderfull and unique animals that have evolve during millons of years. I hope I can create an interest in you to visit my country and to be my guest during the time that you're going to spend in Ecuador. Regards

It would be a pleasure to take you and friends to the 0´00´000´´ latitud and explain how the old scientist French Lacondamine missed the spot just for 200 mts; and you could prove it using a GPS. Then using physics, you will visit the real spot. (read about flushing and standing an egg on a nail with gravity 0). E-mail me to
