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'm very new to LP and this is my first solo trip. I'm trying to get advice and opinions on my itinerary and whether or not it needs to be changed.
Currently it stands as:
July 3-5 - Quito
5-7(8) - Quilotoa loop
7-9 - Banos
19 - Fly from Quito
Is this doable? I thought about eliminating Banos just to free up some time just in case. Which leads me to my next question
2) Is hiking the Quilotoa Loop safe for a first time solo female traveler? I'd like to do it…
Just seeing if theres anything happening at the moment or some cool things to do on the way. Ive been in Cusco for around 6 days, enjoyed every minute. I have 23 days from tomorrow before i have to catch a flight from Lima to Bogata. Planning to be in Cusco a couple more days then catch a bus to Lake Titicaca on to La Paz probably not staying long and to Salar de Uyuni. Thinking will get a flight back to Lima after that. I have to tighten up the budget a lil bit as ive been careless…

Me and my girlfriend are going to Brazil 2.5 weeks in July-August. We fly into Salvador and fly out of Rio de Janeiro. This means that we will have to travel Salvador - Rio during our stay. Both of us are very interested in whales, so we would like to stop over in Parque Nacional da Chapada Marinho de Abrolhos just off the coast of Caravelas, during this trip. What are the most efficient transportation opportunities Salvador-Caravelas and Caravelas-Rio? I suspect it might be easiest to fly in…
Me and my girlfriend are going on a small trip to Brazil from 22 july until the 8th of August. We rented a car for 8 days and we want to drive from Rio to Ouro Preto, from Ouro Preto to Ilha Grande, from Ilha Grande to Paraty and from Paraty to Sao Paulo. We know that driving along the coast (Rio -> Ilha Grande -> Paraty -> Sao Paulo) is safe and a well known route for travellers. We are unsure about driving from Rio to Ouro Preto, we heard that the roads are very bad and it is…
