Re: ahí, allí, allá - what's the difference?

In most cases they are very similar, but with slight differences in meaning.

allí, ahí = there (allí & ahí are basically the same, usage varies by region.)
allá = over there
aquí = here
acá = over here

Ven aquí = Come here.
Ven acá = Come on over here.
Allí está = There it is.
Está allá = It's over there.
Está hasta allá = It's all the way over there.

Wait for some native speakers to give you their take on this.
If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!
