We will meet you at you hotel at 8:30 AM for a drive up north where you will visit Pululahua. This dormant volcano (last eruption: aproximately 2200 years ago) houses a small village in the crater where people live from agriculture. From this viewpoint you will have a good view of the crater, the village and the surroundings of this unique place.
After a visit to Pululahua we go a little bit south to either visit Inti Nan, the interactive museum located exactly on the Equator where you will get an introduction to the various indigenous cultures living in Ecuador or we go to The Middle Of The World where the offical monument is placed representing the Equatoreal line. In the small village built around the monument you will find artesans selling their crafts, an overview of ethnic culture and much more. This is also the place to take a great photo of having one foot in the Northern Hemisphere and the other foot in the Southern Hemisphere.
This tour has a duration of aproximately 3 hours and can also be planned for the afternoon, although a visit to Pululahua will only be included on a morning departure (due to visiblity)
