Puebla's Volcanic Crater Lakes


Volcanic Lagoons


Top contributor Postandfly created this stunning drone video of the volcanic crater lakes in the Mexican state of Puebla, a bit to the south and east of Mexico City.  The three lagoons featured, in order, are  Alchichica, Laguna de las Minas, and Atexcc.  All three are by-products of the extensive volcanic activity in the area, which forms part of the great volcanic belt which runs through the mid-section of the country.  The footage was captured with the DJI Mavic Pro 2 and Phantom 4 Pro drones.  

The Port City of Veracruz


The Port of Veracruz


The Port of Veracruz lies in the Mexican city of the same name on the Gulf of Mexico, just west of the Yucatan Peninsula.  It's the third-largest port in Mexico as well as the largest on its eastern coast.  In 1914, the United States and Mexico fought a mini-war here, during the course of which USA forces fought for and then occupied the city for seven months.  Award-winning contributor Postandfly used a drone to create an amazing aerial view of this important historical seaport, which was founded by the Spanish conquistadors in the early 16th century.  

Tlayacapan: Village in Morelos


San Jose de los Laureles (Tlayacapan)


Award-winning contributor and drone pilot created this epic video of the area around Tlayacapan, a village in central Mexico.  The village is in the state of Morelos, which is situated due south of the national capital in Mexico City.  The village was the filming location for one of the more iconic (and dramatic) scenes in American film: in the 1969 classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford, the shootout against the Bolivian army was in fact filmed here.    

Rock Climbing in Petro Chicao




Rock climbing is an activity that really was made for drones.  Until the advent of drones, filming climbers scaling cliffs and large rock formations was almost impossible - literally there was no way to capture much action with a ground camera or even a helicopter.  Now this is no longer a constraint.  In this video, contributor 1LifeStudios used a drone to create this epic video of a rock climber tackling a complex rock formation called the Spires in the Petro Chicao area of Central Mexico.

Parícutin: Cinder Cone Volcano


Paricutin Volcano


Top contributor Postandfly created this fascinating drone video of one of the geological wonders of Mexico: the Parícutin volcano.  Located in the state of Michoacán, it's one of the world's most famous cinder cone volcanoes, a subtype which arises from eruptions through a single vent that's usually part of a larger volcano.  Parícutin was born in an eruption that began in 1943 and continued for about nine years, although this type of volcano will not erupt again. This video won DVOW in August, 2019.
