Three Spots in the DR


DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - 2019 | Punta Cana, Samana, Santo Domingo


Contributor mamitagadventures used a combination of drone and ground camera footage to create this beautiful video record of a trip to the Dominican Republic, the Caribbean island nation.  The video covers three spots around the country, which shares the island of Santo Domingo with Haiti: (1) Punta Cana, a beach district on the island's eastern end; (2) Samaná, a province which covers a peninsula on its northern shore; and (3) Santo Domingo, the country's capital city, which lies on its southern shore.  

Fortaleza Ozama: Mighty Fort of the DR


Fortaleza Ozama


The Dominican Republic's Fortaleza Ozama was one of the first fortresses built by the Spanish conquistadoras.  It was constructed in 1502 (just a decade after the first Columbus Voyage) to protect the city of Santo Domingo on the south shore of the island, which was the first permanently settled colonial outpost in the New World.  Contributor Moises_Arias used a drone to create this spectacular bird's eye view of the fortress overlooking the Caribbean, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Saona Island


Isla Saona 2019


Saona is a small Caribbean Sea island which lies off the southeastern shore of the Dominican Republic.  Just over a kilometer (less than a mile) off the DR coast, Saona is a popular destination from other spots in the country.  As you'll see in this drone video by sh4rk1337, it's a boaters' paradise, its shallow beaches providing perfect spots for groups to tie their boats together and enjoy the tropical sun.  The island was "discovered" by Christopher Columbus, who landed here on his second voyage in 1494.  

Samaná Province




Take an aerial mini-tour of the Dominican Republic's Samaná Province in this excellent drone video by first-time contributor henderlive.  On of the 31 provinces into which this island nation is divided, the territory of Samaná lies primarily on a peninsula which extends off of the northern (Atlantic Ocean) side of the DR.  With its interior largely mountainous, Samaná's long coastline on the Atlantic as well as the Bay of Rincón (which separates the peninsula from the "mainland") is home to numerous world-class beaches.

Contributor Travel Droner flew his drone over 2 km (around 1.3 mi.) across Samaná Bay in the northern Dominican Republic to capture this epic view of a tiny island resort run by Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts.  The island is called Cayo Levantado, but it goes by another name: Bacardi Island.   The tiny islet, which sits between the  Samaná Province and the mainland, is used by the spirits giant to film commercials.  Watch the video and you'll understand what caught Bacardi's attention! 

Constanza: Interior DR



Oscar Flor...

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 content creator and pilot Oscar Flores, you'll get an awesome aerial view of the area around a town called Constanza.  It's located near the geographic center of the DR, in the La Vega Province.

Resort at Dominicus Beach

Blue River in the Cibao Region


The most blue river at Dominican Republic


Check out this stunning scene from the northern interior of the Dominican Republic, compliments of contributor dronandnord.  It's a stunningly blue river which drains a portion of the mountains which cover much of the center of the island.  This is near the town of Moca in the Espaillat Province.  The province is part of the Cibao region, which covers much of the northwestern DR up to its western border with Haiti.  With its mountainous interior and at times prodigious rainfall, the DR is a heaven for river-lovers.  

FPV in Punta Cana




The long beaches of the Dominican Republic aren't just for sunbathers, surfers, and jetskiers.  First person view (FPV) pilot Buho got out with his long-range TBS Crossfire racing drone to create this FPV video skimming along the sands of the beautiful island nation.  The video was shot around Punta Cana, a newer-vintage resort area which is situated near the eastern tip of the island.  Incredibly, he was able to shoot this with a 100 milliwatt video transmitter, quite small given the range.  

Bao Dam, Santiago Province



Oscar Flor...

With its mountainous interior partly covered by rainforests, it's not surprising that the Caribbean island nation of the Dominican Republic has a substantial hydropower resource.  In this drone video by Oscal Flores, you'll get an aerial view of the reservoir for one of the country's most important dams.  The Bao Dam is a very large  embankment dam on the Bao River in the Santiago province, which lies in the west-central part of the country.  The reservoir powers one of the country's largest hydro plants.

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.

The island nation of the Dominican Republic is known for its beautiful beaches, bevy of resorts for all price ranges, and lush, green golf courses. Located in the Caribbean Sea, its terrain is made of rainforests, savannah, beaches, and highlands. Contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot JZFPV brought his racing quad out while on a trip to the tropical country and created this cinematic 4K, FPV flight. The flight was good enough to land him on our FPV Pilots to Watch list in May of 2019.

Las Terrenas, Samaná


Las Terrenas - Dominican Republic


Contributor and pilot Thedroneexperience used a DJI Inspire drone to create this spectacular video of Las Terrenas in the Dominican Republic.
