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…

I want to visit the north of Peru and possibly cross to Ecuador. I've been as north to Trujillo before, but not to the beaches. I've been told that there are nice beaches near Mancora, I don't care to go northern than there if I can find a nice, not so crowded and clean nice beach. Also not sure if it is warm and sunny enough in July to swim.
A plus if you can suggest a nice not expensive place to stay in front of the beach, maybe a rustic bungalow, which would be dreamy. thank you!

Hola! Allillinchu! Hello!

I am planning on heading to the Cordillera Blanca for a week starting August 7, más o menos. I have never been to the Huarez region before, but I have ample trekking experience in the Cusco region.

I am not interested in doing it with an agency or any sort of guided tour, but I have read it is probably not wise to do it alone. Thus I am looking for a partner or two!

I am thinking the Santa Cruz trek, but am open to other ideas as well! Just anything that will be…

Hola! Allillinchu! Hello!

I am planning on doing the Ausangate trek July 26 July-31 July, más o menos. I have been to Ausangate twice before, but have never done the full trek.

I am planning to visit Cusco with my family (4) in August. I would also like to see the Nasca Lines. What are the ways to get from Cusco to Nasca?

Thank you for your reply.

I was in Cusco several years ago, and arranged my visit to Machu Picchu with a local travel agency. They arranged transportation to Agua Calientes, my bus to Machu Picchu, my ticket, and return to Cusco.

Can any one recommend a local agency, in Cusco, to do this?
