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.

Do I need to book internal flights (specifically VivaColombia) well in advance or is it enough to book them 2 to 5 days before departure? Do the prices become more expensive the later you leave it or do they stay the same or even come down?

I will be traveling in August and September with routes: Bogota-Medellin, Medellin-Santa Marta, Cartegana-San Andres, San Andres-Bogota.
I have read many posts on TRIP-ADVISOR** regarding Buses Natal-Fortaleza, but we want to go the other way the first week of July. All the Bus websites show no availability Fortelaza-Natal, but then again, I read that Bus schedules are not posted until 30 days before departure...
Would we have any trouble booking a bus Fortaleza-Natal the first week of July? Should we wait and book on the ground when we get to Fortaleza?
