Here's a stunning aerial view from the Samaná Peninsula in the northeastern Dominican Republic, compliments of contributor Travel Droner.  While Samaná was "discovered" by Christopher Columbus on his first voyage in 1493, Las Terranas is of considerably more recent vintage - it was only founded in 1946.  Now it's a highly desirable beach destination, especially since the completion of a new highway down the length of the peninsula in 2012 greatly shortened driving time from Santo Domingo.

While the Dominican Republic is primarily associated with beaches and seaside towns, the fact is that it has a fairly sizeable interior.  Much of its land area of just under 50k square km (about 19k square mi.) is actually nowhere near the water, and much of it is covered in mountains.  In this drone video by Oscar Flores, you'll get an awesome aerial view of the area around town called Constanza.  It's located near the geographic center of the DR, in the La Vega Province.

Check out this stunning scene from the northern interior of the Dominican Republic, compliments of contributor dronandnord.  It's a stunningly blue river which drains a portion of the mountains which cover much of the center of the island.  This is near the town of Moca in the Espaillat Province.  The province is part of the Cibao region, which covers much of the northwestern DR up to its western border with Haiti.  With its mountainous interior and at times prodigious rainfall, the DR is a heaven for river-lovers.

The long beaches of the Dominican Republic aren't just for sunbathers, surfers, and jetskiers.  First person view (FPV) pilot Buho got out with his long-range TBS Crossfire racing drone to create this FPV video skimming along the sands of the beautiful island nation.  The video was shot around Punta Cana, a newer-vintage resort area which is situated near the eastern tip of the island.  Incredibly, he was able to shoot this with a 100 milliwatt video transmitter, quite small given the range.
