ahorita...

columbia01Ahorita is a Latin American Spanish word used in the central Americas, yet its usage seems most pronounced in Colombia and Ecuador.

"Ahorita means 'now', or 'right now', or 'not now', or 'later', or 'when I feel like it.' It means both 'right now this minute' and 'never in your lifetime." Swedish manager based in Bogota.

Ahora means literally now, but usually means; later, pretty soon, in a few minutes, in a little while.

Ahora mismo means 'right now' but non-Colombians insisting on 'ahora mismo' are considered ill-mannered.

Pronto means soon, as in a few days.

MaƱana could mean in a few days, it could mean a lot of things (see Spain).

Vamos a ver means never.
