Acapulco Mist


Award-winning contributor Postandfly created this stunning drone video descending through the clouds above Acapulco, Mexico.  It's located on a long, shallow Pacific Ocean bay in the state of Guerrero.  One of Mexico's oldest cities, it was founded by Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century.  "Discovered" as a chic beach destination by a number of Hollywood stars beginning in the 1940s, Acapulco became Mexico's first true resort destination. Surrounded by Hills, Acapulco is also a major cruise ship port of call.

Contributor Pasquale Josepe created this beautiful aerial tour of Los Cabos, a municipality which is located at the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula.  Los Cabos is a municipality which was essentially created for tourism.  It includes the resort towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo.  While the latter town is centuries old, the area only came into its own in the late 20th century, when the Mexican Government decided to create a tourist zone similar to the area around Cancun on the Yucatan Peninsula.

Tijuana: Border City


Tijuana: The Border


In this video, Postandfly gives us a bird's eye view of Tijuana, the largest city on Mexico's western coasts.  It's the largest city in the state of Baja California, which extends from the US border to Cabo St. Lucas at the tip of the BC peninsula.  Tijuana is one of the major manufacturing centers of Mexico, and is home to many maquiladora factories.  Most of the video's footage is shot around the city's Pacific Ocean beach coastline.  He also gets some good shots of the giant Plaza Monumental arena.

The Beaches of Ixtapa Zihuatanejo


Hyperlapse video of Ixtapa Zihuatanejo beaches, Mexico


Former Drone Video of the Week Finalist enriquebarquet brings us this fantastic dronelapse video from the Pacific Ocean beaches of Western Mexico.  The video was filmed in the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo area, a beach district in the state of Guerero, about 260 km (around 150 mi.) up the coast from Acapulco.  Similar to Cabo San Lucas and Cancun albeit on a smaller scale, the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo area initially developed its beach tourism industry under a planned program of investment by the Mexican central government in the 1970's.  

Nyarit's Marietas Islands


Marietas Islands and the hidden beach


Check out this epic dronie shot from a famous island beach near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, compliments of award-winning contributor and drone pilot Postandfly.    It's part of the Marietas Islands, which lie a few km/mi west of Puerto Vallarta in the state of Nayarit.  The islands were used by the Mexican military for bombings and other test explosions in the early 1900's, forming the giant crater-like formation you will see in the video.  The island was closed to the public due to environmental concerns.  

Baja Peninsula by Drone


The Best of Exploring Baja


Award-winning contributor Postandfly created this magnificent highlight reel of drone footage of Mexico's Baja region, a long peninsula which separates the Pacific Ocean from the Sea of Cortez.  Much of the video is focused on the legendary sea mammal wildlife of the region, so you'll get plenty of aerial views of the dolphins, whales, and sea lions.  In terms of inanimate scenery, you will be able to feast your eyes on numerous sea coves, spectacular rock formations, and legendary beaches that abound on and around the Baja Peninsula.

Cabo San Lucas is a resort town located at the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula.  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.

Surfing in Baja California


Surfing in Rosarito, Baja California


Contributor and drone pilot Evanthomas1 gives us this epic aerial video of Rosarita, a small beach community on the Pacific Ocean coast of the Baja California Peninsula in Mexico.  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.  

Guerrero: Acapulco Paradise


Old Acapulco


Check out this drone video of the old city of Acapulco, Mexico by top contributor Postandfly.  Situated on a crescent-shaped bay in the state of Guerrero, Acapulco is one of the oldest cities on Mexico's Pacific coast.  The site was settled in pre-Columbian times, and by the 1530's it was the main Pacific port in the now-colonized Mexico.  The town grew explosively in the 1950's, when it became a playground for the Hollywood set.  In recent years, its tourism has declined due to drug-related violence in the area.

AirVuz contributor Alan Garcia brings us this excellent drone video of Mexico's Arch of Cabo San Lucas, one of the most well-recognized rock formations in the world.  It's located just off the coast of the resort town of Cabo San Lucas, at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula.  This is the spot where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez (aka the Gulf of California).  Popular with both sea lions and tourists, the Arch has helped propel Cabo San Lucas to the top ranks of Mexican beach destinations.  

San Ignacio and Concepcion Bay


Exploring Baja Ep. 5 - Road to La Paz


Award-winning contributor Postandfly created this beautiful drone video of a trip down the Baja Peninsula in western Mexico.  The first stop is the beautiful town of San Ignacio, which lies in the interior of the peninsula, near its north-to-south midpoint.  It's situated on an oasis, on the southern edge of the  El Vizcaíno Biosphere Reserve.  The video also features footage of some of the beaches in Concepcion Bay, which lies a bit south of San Ignacio on the eastern (Sea of Cortez) side of the peninsula.  

Winegrowing in Baja California


Valle de Guadalupe


Valle de Guadeloupe is an up-and-coming winegrowing region in Baja California, Mexico.  It's situated a short drive north of the port of Ensenada, a somewhat longer distance south of Tijuana.  Over the last several decades, its favorable climatic and soil conditions have led to the establishments of many vineyards and wineries.  Postandfly created this beautiful drone video of the region, which has become a destination vacation spot for wine-lovers and now hosts an annual wine festival.

Here's a nice aerial look at the Mexican beach city of Puerta Vallarta, compliments of Matt Rafferty.  Located near the midpoint in Mexico's Pacific coastline, PV was a sleepy, virtually unknown fishing village until the 1950s, when it became something of a disaffected colony for US writers.  Beginning in the 1960's a number of factors (including the filming of the movie Night of the Iguana nearby) conspired to create a tourism boom which has turned it into one of the country's top beach destinations.  

Baja's San Quintín Wetlands


Los Humedales, San Quintín Baja California

Dron Memo...

While Mexico's Baja Peninsula is perhaps most closely associated with the Cabo San Lucas beach/resort complex at its southern tip, the long landform is also home to some natural wonders.  One of them is the wetlands which lie along the peninsula's western (Pacific Ocean) side near the town of San Quintín, about a quarter of the way down from Baja's northern base near the Mexican/US border.  In this excellent drone video by AirVuz contributor Dron Memo, you'll be able to explore this fascinating-looking area from above.  

Surfing the Nayarit Riviera


Longboard Nayarit // 4K Surfing In Mexico


The area north of Puerto Vallarta has become one of Mexico's up-and-coming surfing destinations.  Sometimes called the Nayarit Riviera, this stretch of the Pacific Ocean is attracting growing interest from the world surfing community, which traditionally has gravitated to the Baja California beach towns.  In this drone video by AirVuz contributor Hellokien, you'll get an aerial glimpse of some longboard surfers riding the waves in this sub-tropical paradise on Mexico's western coastline in the state of Nayarit.

Puerta Vallarta is one of Mexico's most fabled beach towns.  While much of the recent growth in the area has been in the Nayarit area to the north, the town center continues to be a significant traffic draw.  Amongst the city's most well known landmarks is the Los Muertos Pier, which sits on a beach of the same name.  Designed by a famous Mexican architect, the pier was completed in 2011 alongside a renovation of the boardwalk.  You can see the famous pier from above in this drone video by AirVuz contributor Kasskel.  

Morning on the Beach, Los Cabos


Magical mornings by the beach


Some of the most beautiful beach areas of Mexico are located at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, which is part of the municipality of Los Cabos.  While the landscape has obviously changed since being developed for tourism in the late 20th century, the region continues to be less densely populated compared to areas like Puerta Vallarta and Cancun.  In this drone video, you'll get a bird's eye view of one of these beaches just as the sun is rising above the Sea of Cortez (aka the Gulf of California).

AirVuz contributor Axlfro used his DJI Phantom 4 to create this beautiful aerial video of Mexico's Cabo San Lucas, the storied resort town at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula.  Home to some of the finest resort properties and beaches in western Mexico, the area was virtually uninhabited until well into the 20th century.  Beginning in the 1970's, like the Cancun area on the other side of the country, Cabo was the beneficiary of a series of initiatives by the Mexican central government to develop its tourism potential. 

Drone Views of Acapulco


Acapulco, Hotels, Resorts. "On the Air"


Acapulco is a popular beach resort town on the Pacific coat of Mexico, in the state of Guerrero.  Settled since Spanish Colonial times, the city is set in a large bay in front of the Sierra Madre del Sur mountains.  Beginning in the 1950's and 60's, the city became one of the first Mexican destination beach towns.  It continues to draw tourists for its nightlife, beaches and golf courses in and around the city. Drone pilot @emotiondrones gives us multiple aerial views of the resorts that surround the bay and its iconic ocean views.
