Overview Day 1: Otavalo Market Day/City Tour & Mitad del Mundo Quito’s historical heart is the largest, least-altered and best- restored in the Americas. The city has invested $400 million since the turn of the century in its cultural heritage – more than any other Latin American city. In 2013, it celebrated 35 years as the first city nominated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The capital’s heart beats with renewed cultural life and pride, as citizens and visitors alike enjoy its unique attractions. We will also visit a museum where students will have the opportunity to stand on the equator.
