For centuries, the economy of Puerto Rico was built on one commodity: sugar.  The sugar cane fields which ringed its coast fed some of the largest sugar mills in the world.  For a variety of reason, the industry went into decline begining in the 1930's, and production today is virtually non-existent. In this drone video by Pedro's Airtime, you'll get a bird's eye view of the now- abandoned Aguada mill, the first integrated mill on the island and for decades one of the world's largest.

Contributor WillyMercado created this spectacular drone video of Crash Boat Beach in northwestern Puerto Rico.  It's the northernmost of a string of beaches which line the Bay of Aguadilla, with the port town of the same name in the center.  It's a beautiful beach area, more suitable to aquatic activities which thrive in calmer surfs, such as sailing and kiteboarding.  The area was once home to an important US Air Force Base, and the port was used to despatch rescues for downed airmen.
