Earthquake in Ecuador

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 all

I am currently looking to fly one way from Cartagena to Mexico City in the first week of August. I am using Momondo.com, skyscanner, kayak and despager.com as well. Thus far the cheapest one way I found was on viva colombia and then interjet for $385 on momondo . Would this fare be considered the cheapest one way from Colombia to Mexico City?

Hi all

I am currently looking to fly one way from Santiago, Chile to Bogota, Colombia. I am using Momondo.com, skyscanner, kayak and despager.com as well. Thus far the cheapest one way I found was on LATAM on skyscanner for $327 on Copa Airlines Colombia. Would this fare be considered the cheapest one way from Chile to Colombia?

Many thanks

Hi.

So I feel I'm very aspirational in aiming for this, but I'm planning a 7 week holiday over November and December in South America and hoping to fly into Buenos Aires and out of Managua. Given the time frame I know it's a bit ridiculous, but Nicaragua and Argentina are two countries I'm dying to visit so I'm going to try and make it work. I haven't been to the continent before, so I was hoping to get advice on where to visit and to what do in between the two countries. I've conceded that I…

I have a question. I watched film "Pelo Malo" and it shows little boy who has afro hair and he hates it. He wants to make his hair straight. His mother treat him badly. I've also seen that all Venezuelan models have straight hair. I've read that woman with African hair are discriminated in Venezuela and people say they are ugly. Is it true? How do people (in general) in Venezuela see woman with natural afro-hair?

I've been debating a few different itineraries for my month in Brazil. It's an odd one because for the last 2 weeks, I have friends to visit (Salvador) and will also go to the Olympics for 5-7 days (Rio).

So I've been looking for some new places to see in Brazil: Thinking of Pantanal (Cuiaba and Campo Grande), Amazon (Manaus, Santarem, and/or Belem but Santarem definitely has my attention for its uniqueness during dry season, which just started).
Found surprisingly cheap airfares from GRU to CGB…

My girlfriend, soon to be wife, are planning a big trip. We were first planning on leaving in January 2017 as a honeymoon type of thing and staying away for a year. We were originally planning to be mostly in Asia. However my best friend is getting married in Brazil next October. That is October 2017. I'm his best man and of course I will attend. So this kind of forced us change our plans a little. First I looked if we could go as planned in January, go to the wedding and head back to Asia but…
