Highlights
  • Take your passport for a special 'middle of the world' stamp

  • Get a free chocolate bar at the entrance to Mitad del Mundo, a favorite in any hemisphere
Description

Want to put a foot in each hemisphere? Head to Ecuador's most visited attraction, Mitad del Mundo. Take part in zany experiments that only work here, and see the monument built on the site where a French explorer first calculated the line of the equator in 1736!

Take your passport with you to Mitad del Mundo - Ecuador's most visited attraction - and get a special stamp to mark your arrival in the middle of the world! Not everyone can say they've been to both hemispheres at the same time.

It's a strange place indeed, in the middle of planet Earth. Why not start by visiting the miniature model of the historic center, complete with temples, plazas and iddy-biddy neighbourhoods? This work was declared a Cultural Asset of Ecuador in the late 1980s.

As well as mini cities and amazing views of the equinoctial valley from the top of the monument, there's loads of fun stuff to blow your mind.

Learn why a kilo weighs less here than anywhere else. Balance an egg on a nail (only possible here!), straddle two hemispheres and see if there's any truth to the rumor that toilets flush in different directions - either side of the line!

A not-to-be-missed trip from Quito.
