First time in Playa del Carmen! I did fly early in the morning trying to avoid the parasailers. No issues at the custom. When leaving Cancun airport the security officer wanted me to open the drone backpack whithout him touching my bag.

Great place to film, and very colourful. Looks like there was a stiff onshore breeze - helps in getting the drone back ;)Thanks for the share.

Thanks! Yes, that cost gets windy. One morning I just had to put the drone back into my backpack. Too much wind.

No, I didn't have to do any calibration. My advise, fly early morning, between 8-9AM and try not to go above the resort behind you. Someone from management came and kindly asked me due to privacy reasons not to fly above the resort.  Stay away if the parasailers are around.

You are not suppose to fly around the ruins, at least at Chichen Itza. Some said they may have jammers.

I've  been talking to a few people and if you go to the  ones that aren't as popular,  a little "tip" to the guard goes a long way.......lol

Keep at it, will only improve over time.

You seem to have a good eye, and decent taste, to continue making it interesting. I enjoyed it, anyway.
