COSTA RICA NEWS –  “Viva Costa Rica” is a collaboration between Ameliarueda.com and Aerial Shutter to give us a 360° perspective of the most visited sites in the country.

Visitors will have the opportunity to take a virtual tour of areas like the beach of Puntarenas, the Poas volcano, the Puente de la Amistad, San José, etc.

“Viva Costa Rica” provides high-resolution images, taken from drones (remotely managed) at three points in each province.

“We wanted to celebrate with a special patriotic month that will highlight the scenic beauty of Costa Rica, but also reflect qualities that make Ticos great: innovation and use of technology,” said executive editor AmeliaRueda.com Antonio Jiménez.

This is the first air-interactive 360 degree project carried out in Costa Rica, said photographer Isaac Martinez, who has no experience of 15 years in photographs from the air.

Using an unmanned drone piloted Michael O’Reilly, the photographs were taken by Isaac Martinez between August 29 and September 11, according to .
