The Mexican state of Yucatan occupies the western part of the Yucatan Peninsula, which it shares with its neighboring state Quintana Roo.  Far from the beaches and resorts of Cancun and the Mayan Riviera, this is rainforest country and it offers an extraordinarily amount of biodiversity.  It's become one of the top eco-tourist destinations ni Mexico.  Contributor Iñigui was in  Sisál, Yucatán when he happened upon a flock of flamingos.  The drone video he took from this encounter is truly memorable.

Oaxaca

Postandfly

Top contributor Postandfly created this stunning drone video of the city of Oaxaca, capital of the state of the same name in Southern Mexico.  The state is considered one of Mexico's great cultural treasures because of its indigenous population, in which at least 16 pre-Columbian tribes have survived and with greater continuity than in other parts of the country.  Located in a mountain valley, Oaxaca was the subject of four of the eight essays in DH Lawrence's travel book Mornings in Mexico (1927).

Quintana Roo is the easternmost state of Mexico.  It occupies most of the great  Yucatan Peninsula, which it shares with the states of Yucatan and Campache and the Central American countries Guatemala and Belize.  Away from the beaches of Cancun, in the interior of the state, which is primarily jungle, you'll find the long, narrow lagoon of Bacalar.  The lake is stunning, with brilliantly clear aqua blue water.  Contributor Travel Lifestyle used a drone to create this amazing aerial video of this Mexican treasure.

Hiere el Agua: Petrified Waterfalls

Postandfly

Contributor Postandfly created this spectacular drone video of one of the world's most unusual rock formations.  The Hierve el Agua (the "water boils") is a a set of formations that look very much like streams of cascading water.  Amazingly so, especially when viewed from an aerial perspective.  The pheonenon is caused by streams of spring water that are over-saturated with the mineral calcium carbonate.  They are located in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, in the southern region of the country.

Chiapas Waterfalls: Mexican Paradise

AurelBaud

The southern Mexican state of Chiapas is becoming known around the world for its magnificent waterfalls, which abound in this land of canyons and rainforests.  In this video by contributor AurelBaud, you'll get an aerial view of three of the most well known of these falls: El chiflon, Las Nubes, and Agua Azul.  Agua Azul is the best known of the three; it's actually a series of many cataracts on the Xanil River.  A concentration of calcium carbonate causes the falls' water to appear as a fantastic shade of blue-green.

Mexico's Riviera Maya

Conexión Destinos

Contributor Conexión Destinos created this beautiful drone video from the Mayan Riviera in Caribbean Mexico.  Like Cancun itself, the area south of the great Mexican beach city was virtually uninhabited for centuries.  With the growth of Cancun and Cozumel, the stretch of Caribbean coastline became ripe for redevelopment.  Once known as the Cancun-Tulum Corridor in reference to its new endpoints, it has become known by its new name in deference to the native peoples who once lived here.

Cozumel is the most well known of the Mexican islands in the Caribbean.  It sits a short ferry ride off the Mayan Riviera area of the mainland, south of Cancun.  Cozumel's tourism business was fairly modest until the Cancun area began to develop in the 1970's.  Now, Cozumel is home to a world-class scuba diving scene and it's an active cruise ship port of call.  In this video, you'll get a bird's eye view of this beautiful mangrove-covered island, compliments of contributor Isabelle Vaca.

Contributor Rich McHardy put his brand new DJI Mavic Pro drone to good use creating this video from a trip to Southern Mexico.  The footage was shot along a stretch of coastline running from Cancun to Play del Carmen in the state of Quintanta Roo, on the Yucatan Peninsula.

Beautiful Drone Footage of Isla Mujeres, Mexico

Check out this stunning drone video of the long narrow island off the coast of Mexico called Isla Mujeres, compliments of contributor Reelspecial.  It's easily accessible by boat from Cancun, the largest resort city on the Yucatan Peninsula.  In pre-Columbian times, it was associated with the Mayan goddess of childbirth, and its current name (Island of Women) retains that connection.  The island is 7 km (4.3 mi.) long but only 600 meters (just over 2k ft.) wide.
