Abandoned Sugar Mill, Aguada Puerto Rico

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

For centuries, the economy of the Caribbean island 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.
