While I wouldn't go to Quito without making this stop, the attraction other than the obvious photo op right on the Equator is a must. There is a small museum and the green board photo op is very cool but we saw everything we needed...More

This has been one of the most disappointing places I have ever visited. FYI, the "city" is like a any random Latin American neighborhood. It is pretty recent so nothing "historical" there. Passing the "city" you get to the monument-fake fake FAAAKE mitad del mundo...More

When we were reading reviews, we were worried this would be a tourist trap. Our visit surpassed all of our expectations! We did the $3.50 entry to the monument instead of the museum and all of the add on stuff. We did not regret it!...More

We just took the city bus. Depending on where you leave from it takes about an hour with 2 transfers.
