Award winning contributor Postandfly created this stunning drone video descending through the clouds above Acapulco, Mexico.  The city is the oldest and best known of the beach cities along the country's long Pacific and Baja coastlines.  Like most of Mexico's western coastal towns, it's surrounded by hills.  Located in the state of Guerrero, Acapulco is best known for its natural circular bay, which (as you'll see in the video) is frequented by cruise ships.

Cabo San Lucas is located on Mexico's Pacific Coast.  Cabo has something to offer everyone, from beachgoers to kite surfers, fishermen, off-road adventurers, and cruise ship passengers.  Contributor Douglas Thron used a drone to capture Cabo's flavor from a high end resort on the beach.  The bird's eye views of this beach paradise will help you understand why it is one of the most popular vacation spot in a country which is full of world-class beach destinations.

For a look at the amazing array of Mexican sea life, it's hard to beat this award winning video by Bryson.  The video, which uses a combination of drone, ground camera, and underwater footage, was shot off of La Paz.  La Paz is on the eastern side of the Baja California peninsula, on the Gulf of California (also known as the Sea of Cortez on the Mexican side of the border).  The aerial/underwater footage of whales, sea turtles, manta rays, and much else is simply spectacular.

La Ventanilla

Postandfly

Top contributor shot this amazing drone video of La Ventanilla, a small community in the state of Oaxaxa on Mexico's southern Pacific coast.  The village and surrounding beach area has become a major center for eco-tourism.  In the video you'll see why.  Most of it was shot in a mangrove swamp, only a short distance from the ocean but literally a world apart.  The star is a 4 meter (13 foot) one-eyed crocodile, who apparently takes no offense from the hovering drone.

Surfing in Rosarito, Baja California

evanthomas1

Contributor Evanthomas1 gives us this epic aerial video of Rosarita, a small beach community on the Pacific Ocean coast of Baja California.  It's located just a short distance south of Tijuana, the largest city in BC and the fifth largest metropolitan area in Mexico.  In sharp contrast to the bustling industrial city to its north, Rosarita is a very laid back surfing community, much more akin to one of the LA surfing towns just a short distance further up the coast.
