Quito, Ecuador

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
Excellent guide! and excellent driver! The monument is well, mainly a photo op. but hey you have to go right? There are some odd but interesting displays by the monument including an insectarium and a small collection of pottery depicting the path of the sun. Don't forget to try the local ice cream on the way out. It is worth it! I would recommend spending the 3 dollars for the museum at the actual GPS equator, get past the decor and just experience it. The experiments on the actual equator line is the real draw including balancing an egg on a nail, trying to walk the equator without loosing your balance (it's harder than it sounds) and watching water go straight down a drain with no spin. The caldera near by offers spectacular views and is well worth stopping at. This offers the best scenery of the area and was my favorite stop.
