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.

San Juan, Puerto Rico is one of the best-preserved vestiges of the once-great Spanish Empire in the Western Hemisphere.  It's the third-oldest Spanish capital city in the America's; only Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic and Panama City in Panama are older, and only by a few years.  Situated towards the eastern end of Puerto Rico's northern (Atlantic) coastline, the old city is dominated by the Fortress of San Juan.  Check out the old city from above in this drone video by Iris Films.
