La Mitad del Mundo is a government owned park that is said to be the Equatorial Monument. The 30 meter tall monument commemorates the first Geodesic mission that calculated the world’s equatorial line. The place also has a small museum about the ethnic cultures of Ecuador. If you take the elevator to the top of the enormous monument you will have great views of the surrounding countryside.

Entry fees: US$2. Ethnographic Museum and Solar Museum: US$3 each, $7.50 full pass

Entry time: Open daily 9am – 6pm.
