Travel Droner

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.

Oscar Flores brings us this beautiful drone video of Sosua Beach in the Dominican Republic. It lies on the country's northern shore, about a half hour drive east of the town of  Puerto Plata.  Its relatively sheltered waters provide for some of the best sailing in the country, and its underwater sea life makes for some great snorkeling and scuba diving.  It's just a short distance from the Gregorio Luperón International Airport, the main airport for the northern part of the DR.
