Hey I love your video. Looks like an amazing destination and I can see you had a wonderful time.

Scorpions in the washing!? Worth doing a tip about that one! What drone did you fly for the aerial shots? Great use for the sunrises - you can force it by ascending!

We are off to Arizona for a two week road trip next week with my Air - I - can - not - wait!

Cheers
Iain

Just wondering if you registered your drone before going?

no you don't have to register your drone. Only if you're using it for commercial use. I actually called the Costa Rica's FDA before I went. There is only a couple of places you can't fly your drone. Arenal Volcano and La Fortuna Waterfall from what I know. I always saw around 1 to 2 drones flying everyday. Loved it. Great country for flying drones.

Nice footage, and I agree with a lot of what you said, but your overall theme was killing me. You guys sound like the ultimate gringos:eek:!

I get it, you’re trying to make it unique, not another YouTube review of CR, but seriously I opened the video with this already preconceived notion that you were going to piss me off.

CR is a very special place for me, I’ve been there over 20 times since I was 8, and am about to marry a Tica I met in NY coincidentally. So I just felt like I was about to watch you bash on CR (which you didn’t), but I still had this awful feeling going into it.

Yes Costa Rica is such a special place. The video was just informational and non bashing. I'm glad we didn't piss you off :). Congrats on the marriage. Next step is kids which is a huge life change.

Haha! Actually my soon to be wife really liked your video!
