Curious place, though not exceptional. But if you are in Macapá for whatever reason (I was there to deliver a lecture), by all means visit the Equator line. A few hundred meters from Marco Zero you can also see a football field, the center line...More

As in the title not too many of your friends can claim this and it's a great place to take the standard picture of you straddling both sides of the equator. Steep steps up to the site but there is a long ramp for easier...More

Taking a photo when one foot is in the southern hemisphere while the other foot is in the northern hemisphere can be exciting. All the tours head here just for that purpose.
