In this video, top contributor Wrenee, aka the Queen of the Dronie, takes her act to the massive Lake Nicaragua in the country of the same name in Central America.  Shooting from a kayak in the massive body of water, she uses her trademark pullout shot to film the lake (which is the 19th largest lake in the world by surface area) and the massive volcano behind it. Scenes like this are causing Nicaragua to follow the path originally set by Costa Rica to become a top travel destination.  

Costa Rica's Waterfalls


Chasing Costa Rica Waterfalls


Costa Rica's numerous volcanoes and extensive rainforests combined to create a third natural phenomenon - beautiful gushing waterfalls.  The western half of this Central American  country, inland from its Pacific Ocean coast, is home to some of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world.    Impressively, top contributor and former DVOW winner Msmember was able to visit eight of these marvels in a 24 hour period, drone in hand.  As you'll see from his video, the bird's eye views are spectacular.    

Belize's San Pedro Island


DJI Mavic Pro Views of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, Belize


Ambergris Caye is one of the largest and least well known islands of the western Caribbean.  It sits off the coast of northeastern Belize, just below on add-shaped southern extension of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.  Its primary settlement is the town of San Pedro, near its southern tip.  On a scuba diving trip, contributor Jeven Dovey used his DJI Mavic Pro drone to create this unforgettable aerial portrait of this Central American paradise, which has become a world-class scuba diving destination.

DVOW Nominee from Panama


Flying Escudo de Veraguas


Check out this amazing drone video of a small but ecologically important island of Panama in Central America, which won Drone Video of the Week in March 2019.  Isla Escudo de Veraguas lies off of Panama's eastern (Caribbean) coastline, in the Golfo de los Mosquitos.  Only a little over 4 square km (about a square mile), the tiny island is the only known remaining natural habitat of a rare fruit bat called Thomas's fruit-eating bat and an equally rare Pygmy three-toed sloth.   Both species are considered to be critically endangered.  

El Salvador's Capital City


Centro H


Contributor and pilot Fotovideorestudiosv created this drone video of San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador in Central America.  The city was originally built by 16th century Spanish conquerors more or less on top of a native town which had stood there, but was shortly thereafter relocated southward to its present location in  Boquerón Volcano Valley.  It's one of the most seismic areas on earth, and the city has survived numerous earthquakes and eruptions from the nearby volcanoes.

Costa Rica's Waterfalls


Costa Rica Waterfalls in 24 hours


Top contributor msember had a mission: to not only visit eight of Costa Rica’s most beautiful waterfalls in 24 hours, but to take drone footage of them as well. As you’ll see in this video, he accomplished his mission and put together a pretty great drone video in the process.  With its mountainous interior, much of which is covered by rainforests, this small Central American country is home to some of the world's most beautiful waterfalls, in addition to its equally famous volcanoes.  

Panama's San Blas Islands


Drone Views of Panama's San Blas Islands


Canadian contributor Braybraywoowoo created this epic drone video of Panama's San Blas Islands.  The islands lay off the east (Caribbean) coast of this Central American country.  It's an archipelago of over 350 islands, only about 15% of which are inhabited.  The San Blas Islands are considered an important watchpoint in the process of global warming; due to their low, flat terrain they are highly vulnerable to changes in worldwide sea levels and will be at great risk if current worldwide temperature trends continue.
