Contributor Fotovideorestudiosv created this drone video of San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador in Central America.  The city was originally built by 16th century Spanish conquerors more or less on top of a native town which had stood there, but was shortly thereafter relocated southward to its present location in  Boquerón Volcano Valley.  It's one of the most seismic areas on earth, and the city has survived numerous earthquakes and eruptions from the nearby volcanoes.

Playa el Zonte


Contributor Fotovideorestudiosv created this magnificent aerial video of a beautiful Pacific Ocean beach in El Salvador.  The country was torn apart by a brutal civil war which began in the 1970's and delayed its discovery by tourists.  Fortunately, the country has returned to political stability, and tourists are beginning to discover the charm of its relatively undiscovered beaches.  El Zonte lies along this developing line of beach communities, about an hour's drive from the capital San Salvador.

Punta Roca El Salvador Centro America


Unlike its neighbors in Central America, El Salvador only has one coastline, on the Pacific Ocean.  That's the right side though for surfing, and like so many other countries with a Pacific coast El Salvador is developing its own surf culture.  One of the top spots is Punta Roca, which lies towards the northern end of the country's coastline.  In this video, you'll get a bird's eye view of this fast-developing surfing destination, courtesy of contributor and drone pilot Fotovideorestudiosv

Parque Arqueológico San Andrés


Part of the allure of El Salvador is the cultural history associated with its western portion, which was part of the Mayan Empire that ruled much of southern Mexico and Central America in Pre-Columbian times.  Provinces like Ahuachapán and Santa Ana covered the southwestern reaches of the Mayan territory.  In this video, you'll get a bird's eye view of the Parque Arqueológico San Andrés, a Mayan site in the province of La Libertad, compliments of contributor and drone pilot  Fotovideorestudiosv.
