Fodor's Review

The Marco Zero do Equador is a modest monument to the equatorial line that passes through town. Although it consists of only a tall, concrete sundial and a stripe of red paint along the equator, there's a distinct thrill to straddling the line or hopping between hemispheres. The soccer stadium across the street uses the equator as its centerline. From Macapá's outdoor bus terminal on Rua Antônio Coelho de Carvalho, a block from the fort, catch the bus labeled "b. novo/universidade"

to the Marco Zero, a 20-minute ride.
