In this video, top contributor Wrenee, aka the Queen of the Dronie, takes her act to the massive Lake Nicaragua in the country of the same name in Central America.  Shooting from a kayak in the massive body of water, she uses her trademark pullout shot to film the lake (which is the 19th largest lake in the world by surface area) and the massive volcano behind it. Scenes like this are causing Nicaragua to follow the path originally set by Costa Rica to become a top travel destination.

Check out this epic aerial view of the famous Masaya volcano in the Central American republic of Nicaragua, compliments of contributor ryanscotthoag.  It's actually a caldera (a system of volcanoes) and it's located a short distance south of the country's capital in Managua.  It's a highly complex system that has many vents and craters.  Continually emitting sulfur gas, the volcano has a peak altitude of about 635 meters (around 2.1k ft.).  Check it out from a unique perspective in this drone video by katie.j11.

MAVIC PRO - DREW ESTATE CIGAR FACTORIES 1&2 - ESTELI, NICARAGUA

Kenneth Espinoza

Nicaragua has been greatly impacted by goings-on in Cuba; for example, long-term dictator Somoza was overthrown in the late 1970's largely due to the efforts of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.  Another way in which the countries are intertwined is in the making of cigars; when Castro assumed power in Cuba, many of the country's cigar makers decamped for Honduras.  In this drone video by Kenneth Espinoza, you'll get a bird's eye view of a cigar factory in Esteli, now the center of the Nicaraguan cigar industry.

SAN JUAN DEL SUR, NICARAGUA

Kenneth Espinoza

San Juan del Sur is one of the main beach towns on the Pacific Ocean (western) side of the Central American nation of Nicaragua.  Once driven by fishing, it's been one of the prime beneficiaries of the increase in tourist traffic to Nicaragua in recent years (a phenomenon which has, often as not, been driven by surfers).  San Juan del Sur is also the home of what is perhaps the country's most well known landmark (the giant Christ of the Mercy statue) and has hosted the Survivor reality TV series.

Ryan's Ridiculous: Underwear Volcano Boarding

Ryan's Ridiculous

What, exactly, is underwear volcano boarding?  Find out in this episode of Ryan's Ridiculous.  Ryan takes his show to a volcano in the Central American country of Nicaragua.  A lava field on the slope of the volcano resembles a snow covered mountain, and if you can snowboard down a mountain in your underwear, well, why not a lava field?  See all this and more, and mostly filmed (how else?) with a drone.
