Drone Friendly ?

Hello all, I visit every year and have always wondered if it was ok to fly my drone there.

Was always worried some masked dudes would come knocking at my door demanding the video card for seeing something I wasn't supposed to.

Obviously wont be flying near guzman bay or anything.

Thanks for your input.

p.s been watching the peir being built on the live cams, I predict a 2024 completion date at this rate

The pier webcam has been down for quite a long time. Where are you able to watch?

I'm aware of those but the webcam showing the pier was shut down quite awhile ago.

Not sure why you're going to all that hassle to find webcams when I have all the working webcams listed on my Local Beaches page. B-)

A guy with a drone lived across the street on La Madera, for a while. I had him take some pictures for the Casa Amarilla website.

We probably see one out over the water, launched from the beach, every couple of weeks. Sometimes adults, sometimes kids. Don't know the legality, but at least one place, Embarc, specifically prohibits them.

Thank you for the reply, I wouldn’t be over any resort properties or private residence without them requesting video or a picture or something.

Many people feel that Drones are intrusive and noisy... Please be respectful. I personally would like to not have drones flying around Zihua and would like it if you did not spoil, mess up, desecrate or plunder the ambiance of Zihua.

Please leave you're drone at home..

Hi Sven,

I would not be flying over people or private properties unless requested to do so, I have several friends who have asked me to make some footage of their properties for ads for their rentals.

I agree with you 100 % that they can be very invasive and I would be using it with the utmost respect to not infringe on others.

Other than that, It would be used on some of the more remote beaches looking for wildlife.

Thank you for the input.

This web page link might be of interest:

Drone Laws in Mexico

Seems that most drones need to be registered with a government agency, and only Mexican citizens can get the registration.

Suerte,

Funny stuff.

I’d take stuff like that more seriously if there weren’t so many flagrant violations of the laws visible and audible at any time of day within just a few blocks of my home.

Just be respectful of the rights of others and no one should mind.

Saludos.

Oh, if we could all just live that way all the time, what a beautiful world it would be.
