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…

Long time lurker, first time poster. My boyfriend and I (both 20) are planning on travelling to Southern Peru for 3-4 weeks this December. I have an intermediate level of Spanish, however I have only travelled in Spain solo. (My boyfriend speaks no Spanish nor has he travelled)
I was wondering if it was better to plan it ourselves and do our own thing (mostly along the touristy path not too off track) or just book a guided tour throughout?
Thoughts appreciated! :)
I found some terrific reviews of this agency but they are all several years old. Other recommendations for agencies to do various 2-4 day tours in various parts of Bolivia?

Hi, Im currently in colombia and messed up with my visa extension and have overstayed. I was told i have to pay a fine before I leave, I have booked two appointments for this and apparently there is one woman that does this in medellin where I am currently and twice she has not been there. Is it possible to just do this once im in the airport, yeah i messed up but its a joke that the woman just isnt there when I scheduled the appointment. If it is possible at the airport is it a 24 hour service…
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!
