There was a large earthquake (7.8) tonight near Cojimies (between Mompiche and Pedernales). It was shallow and it was felt right through the country. It was 6.4 in Quito, but no major damage was reported other than some power outages. Guyaquil was hit hard, there's a lot of damage reported, at least one overpass collapsed and so far one death officially. Manta has suffered too, the airport is closed, the control tower collapsed, 10 deaths reported in the city. Portoviejo too, with 18 deaths…

Hi, my name is Joan (from Barcelona, Spain) and me and my future wife are planning our honeymoon as a trip to South America. We are planing to fly on 16th December 2016 and come back to Barcelona on 8th January 2017. We are mountain enthusiast, so that's why we are going to Patagonia (Fitzroy, Torres del Paine,...) but we'd like to complete it with more "cultural" things as we plan to have one week free after 2 weeks in the Patagonia area. Thanks a lot!

Dear fellow travellers,
in October i will make time to follow the Amazon.
But....i need your expertise:
Is it worth to go for 6 days to Santa Elena (Venezula)?
Do you have suggestions?
Thank you for reading this topic.
On Friday I go to Salvador via plane.
I'm sure the cambios at the airport are a rip off! And then it's the weekend as I arrive late Friday night.
Where do you think over the weekend I can get a good rate for usd as well as during the week? The current rate to sell usd?
I will be staying in Rio Vermelho
Many thanks. Muito obrigado
We are trekking an alternative route to Machu Picchu. Our trek arrives in Aguas Calientes on the last trek night, then the next morning goes up to tour the city. We are considering staying an additional night so that we can hike to the sun gate, up Huayna Picchu and up Machu Picchu mountain. However, will 2 days be too much time for the area? I hate to spend so much time trekking of only to spend just 1 day at an amazing site, but we also have a limited amount of time for our trip!
i am looking for a reliable car+driver (individual or company) that could bring 4 adults from La Paz to San Pedro de Atacama (or to the Chilean border) through Sajama National Park, Potosi and Salar de Uyuni.
