Drone Footage of the Riviera Maya - Playa del Carmen / Xpuha / Surprise Location

in travel •  last year

Not many words can describe flying

The closest I can get to flying without being on an aircraft is flying a drone, and I love it. Check out some of the images I shot this weekend. I hope you like them.

Amazing footage!

·

Thank you @pal! I appreciate your comment.

Stunning!

·

Thank you!

Great footage mate!
My drone was stolen the last time I went on vacation...I've been saving so I think it is time to invest in a new one.

·

It is a great investment my friend. Its fun and if you get good at it, there are a lot of potential clients. I have been in marketing and branding for a while, photography being a huge part of it and drones bring a whole new world to advertising and imaging. Go for it mate. Get a new drone.

·
·

I used it to take pictures for work and the one time I brought it on vacation it went missing...Just my luck!

Keep it up.

·
·
·

Will do. All the best.

This is so cool! I feel like a bird!

·

That is the idea! Enjoy...

Beautiful

·

Thank you so much! I am happy you enjoyed it.

WOW! The footage you captured of the coastline is incredible. I visited Playa Del Carmen two months ago and fell in love with the beaches there. Such good vibes!

·

It is a great place. I have been living here for over 7 years. A lot has changed.

Very cool video! Love the sunset shots. Ive always wanted to fly a drone, seems like it would be a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing. Ill be sure to follow and upvote!

·

Thank Josh. Flying a drone is super fun. The best part is seeing what you capture on the big screen. If you ever do buy a drone, get one that records in 4K. You will love the results. Have fun and thanks for following!

·
·

Sounds great, thanks for the info!!

Truly amazing photos.
Very nice post :)

·

Thank you. I am really happy you enjoyed it. Stay tuned for more cool footage.

I recently traveled to Playa Del Carmen and Tulum. It's nice to see a different view of the city.

·

It is pretty cool around here. I have a plan to shoot something with more impact so make sure to follow. This place is paradise, but there is so much that is unseen. I want to create a positive influence on the care taking on the ocean and the jungle.

These drones with camera are really something . Birds eye views.Great views. Will definitely get one. What do you recommend?

·

I have only flown DJI drones. This was filmed with a DJI 3 Pro. Apparently the DJI 4 Pro and the DJI Mavic are awesome. Once you are serious about drones, there are so many more upwards. The DJI Mavic is next on my list. Good luck.

·
·

Thank you. Seems exciting. To fly it and the great pictures to look forward to.

beautiful sun...!!
amazing photography..!

·

Thank you so much. I love photography and mixing it with a drone has been really exciting. I will continue to share what I see with my eyes in the sky.

·
·

Wow,, love the over the sea shots.. the waves and boats...
Stunning!

·

Thank you @varna. I will continue to take fun trips and I promise to share as much footage as possible.

·
·

Looking forward to it... :)

Great quality! I have a Karma + Go Pro we received as a gift. Quality is not as good but it works for now! I'm planning a visit to Tulum next year so seeing the nearby areas from overhead like this was sick!

·

Hi Jenny. I have not used the goPro Karma, but I do get pretty good footage from the goPro. Make sure you have it set to the highest quality.

Tulum is amazing. You will love it for sure. A lot of things to film and great places for Yoga! Enjoy.

Very nice! I have the same feeling when flying a drone. I own the Dji Mavic Pro. What drone do you have?

·

I shot this with a DJI Phantom 3 Pro. I am looking into the Mavic. It is awesome and the autonomy of it is great! 7km!!!

Amazing! Beautifully done!

WOW!

·

Thank you so much! A "WOW" means a lot.

This is wonderful! , check out also my Yucatan adventure on my blog @sava ;)

·

Thank you Sava!

I enjoyed the shots you took with the drone. It's nice that you included the launching and retrieving of it with the rest of the scenery images. I just got a drone, I'm inspired to take it up now!

·

Go fly! You will love it. The more you practice, the better your films will be. I still have such a long way to go, but I am loving the process.

Magnificent sunset shot. This is one of those post that tells me I should get a drone.

·

If you can, go and get one. They are awesome.

I love it such a sense of wonder when you view things from a height :) definitely following to keep a track of future posts!

·

Hi @aineyann. Thank you so much for the follow. I promise I will continue to fly and share.

what a amazing place

·

It is better from above, except when taking a swim.

So beautiful photos. Thank you for shearing

·

Thank you for your comment. There will be more cool videos coming soon.

really nice, good settings! I also posted a series of photos of a trip to Barcelona yesterday https://steemit.com/photography/@vanylou/teamwinchester-a-series-of-photographs-get-to-know-us-and-barcelona-from-a-different-perspective. I would be so grateful if you gave it a look- Keep on going! ;)

·

I did. Good stuff. Barcelona is amazing, right?

Great shots!

·

Thank you!

Hi, @diegotorrescolo.
I congratulate you on the beautiful experience of your filming.
And I congratulate myself for having the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful views that you allow us.
We are fortunate in our Hispanic America, having this beautiful paradise.
I live in Venezuela, where there is beautiful nature; I hope you can come and enjoy.
Peace for you

·

Thank you very much. I know Venezuela is a beautiful place to find nature. Hopefully things calm down and people can visit safely soon.

·
·

Surely yes.
For now, I think it is still restricted by the government, the use of drones in Venezuela

Oh man, beautiful!

If you are still in the area, you should check out Tulum and even isla mujeres, such beautiful places!

·

Great idea for the weekend! Isla mujeres it is...

Beautiful video WOW
the Sun is touching :D

·

I am glad you liked it. The sun is really something, right?

Drones are making this all sooooo beautiful!

·

I could not agree more. I am saving to get the next best drone and get much better quality. The Inspire by DJI is amazing. Can´t wait to get one and fly it.

It reminds me a lot of my trip to Mexico Riviera Maya. I miss there so much, great videography and good song choices for the video. Thank you.

·

It is a place to be missed. Come back soon, every year it changes and there are so many interesting places to visit. I am happy yo enjoyed the video and the song. I will be posting regularly, so make sure to follow.

·
·

thanks, what is the name of the song?

·

You should come back. There is so much to see!

amazing, love the drone images, really nice clip.

·

Thank you @fivefiveeleven . All the best.

Wow! It's so beautiful) check out my last post about my travelling experience to the mountains, if u are interested in it, of couse)

·

I will. I would love to fly a drone in the mountains. Everything here is pretty flat. =)

You nailed it! amazing video what a pleasure to watch thanks for sharing @diegtotorrescolo

·

What a great comment. Thank you @beretc

·
·

you are welcome

This is so beautiful. Good job! I had a drone once but the quality wasn't that great so I sold it off. What drone did you use for this video if you don't mind me asking?

·

It is a DJI Phantom 3 Pro.

Nothing like the Latin landscapes

Absolutely amazing! I sooooooo want a drone. Maybe one day. We can all dream hey ;)

·

Absolutely. Save a little money each month. There are some really good drones for not so much money. Make it happen!

·
·

I do like the GoPro Karma - probably not the best "pro" equipment - aimed more at consumers. But I do like it :)

·
·
·

Compare it to the DJI Mavic. I don´t know the cost for the Karma, but the Mavic, is pretty cool.

·
·
·
·

Yip, a lot of people swear by the DJI Mavic :)

Been there and it is beautiful. Thanks for reminding me of good things. 🐓🐓

·

No problem. I will keep on posting so stay tuned.

·
·

Following and watching 🐓🐓

·
·
·

I recently posted two videos of my girlfriend and I traveling Central and South America. Not a lot of aerial shots, but pretty exciting. Check them out. Have an awesome day.

·
·
·
·

Will do . Many thanks 🐓🐓

Great footage @diegotorrescolo one of my near future investments will be a drone...

·

You wont regret it @frankhappa. If you are a world traveller I recommend the new DJI Mavic. It is small and pretty powerful. I am looking forward to getting a new one myself. I wish I had a drone last year...my fiancé and I travelled Central and South America for 8 months!

·
·

Cool, my favorite part of the world, I spend more than 5 years of my life in Central and South America and found the love of my life there @yurodidit . Bought a piece of land in Venezuela where asap move back there to start building.
Enjoy your travels
Greets,
Frank

It is fantastic!

·

Thank you!

Wow, Really great shots Diego!! I am a drone pilot too and totally agree that it is the best feeling!! I fly a phantom 3 professional.

·

Awesome. We fly the same drone! Being that you are a drone pilot, your comment means a lot. Thank you so much!

Magic views!

·

Thank you my friend. I will be uploading new footage soon!
