Quiza vs quizas

Is there a difference to when either word (quiza or quizas) is used or do they both mean exactly the same thing and using one or the other makes no difference?

This is a piece of info that explains everything "A menudo surge la pregunta sobre cuál de los dos adverbios de duda es el correcto: quizá o quizás. La buena noticia es que ambos son totalmente correctos y usarlos indistintamente no atenta contra el buen uso del español. Sin embargo, la tendencia, más por fonética que por alguna otra causa, es la de usar quizá cuando la palabra que se escribe a continuación empieza con consonante. En cambio, se escribe quizás cuando el siguiente vocablo empieza con vocal. Así, por ejemplo: 'Quizá lleguemos a tiempo para la cena', 'Quizás abran el restaurante antes de las seis'" BASSICALLY WHAT this means is that you can use quiza and quizas but it sounds better when you use the "quizas" whenever the next word starts with the letter "a"...or any vowel...somewhat similar to the english " a" and "an"...you dont say "a animal" you would say "an animal" cause on the other way it gives you a wierd sound with two "a". Espero te haya sido util la informacion, saludos desde Mexico!
