TripAdvisor Reviews BEST WESTERN PREMIER Cplaza Hotel Quito
Travel Blogs from Quito
... 20 kms but nearly 1 hours drive from Quito. The equator was discovered and mapped by a French expedition team in the early 1700s. There are several monuments in the area, the largest supposed to be on the equator but is actually about 250 meters off the true line. We were taken straight to the museum and Equatorial village, built around the monuments.

Back on board and just enough time to shower, change and go whale watching then a climb up the Darwin Volcano to Darwin lake awaits us. After searching for a while we spotted two whales in a gorgeous pristine area surrounded by seven volcanoes ...

It seems that the locals stay in town after visiting church and embrace the quintessential Ecuadorian pastime of eating Ice Cream! We don't visit all of the religious sites today. We go into one of the churches, San Francisco, and the interior is covered in gold leaf. An impressive site, but as a service is underway we feel like we ...
