As you will see, i'm french ! (Sorry for my poor writing) I am leaving for Puerto Vallarta in 2 weeks from now. I was preparing my trip based on the information i found 2 months a go on internet. But now, i just found out a new "uav" regulation for 2016 in Mexico. . I will be there for holiday for 1 week and i like to bring my P4 and bring back some image but i don't want any problem .

It look's a lot more strict and when i read the " 2016 Regulation , i'm not shure i understand well what it mean by " when used to take aero-photographs " ?
Is this only for commercial , particular or everyone ? How should i take this ?

Here is the :

To me it looks like if you don;t get their equivalent of a licence and have insurance they can fine you$20.000 US
The first paragraph says it applies to everyone

Draw a big moustache on it and put a sombrero on it and tell them it's a local that learned how to fly.

Your Phantom 4 is in the "micro" category in Mexico since its weight is less than 2 kg. Getting appropriate insurance should not be a problem. I note that my standard homeowner's insurance meets Mexico's insurance requirements.

Depending on how the regulations are perceived, in addition to insurance there may be authorization from the Ministry of Defense ?

Mexico is always a crap shoot...doesn't matter what the laws are, what matters is how a given police officer or Fédérale chooses to interpret them. You very likely won't have a problem in Mexico, but if you do....there are very few problems in that country that $200 won't solve.

Looks like Mexico is even worse than US. Canada seems to have the most drone friendly rules.

I go to Cancun every year. I take my drone. It is very friendly there. I usually fly the beaches, and local area. We go to the Royal Sands. I ask security and they always say sure. We are going approximately 40 miles south this year. Looking forward to fly some country side.

Just be nice and polite, even though the way some people act doesn't deserve it. Tell her the sky is controlled by FAA. Fly away from her area. I live in a community of 55 and over. Haven't had a minute of trouble. I fly my neighbood with no complaints.

I was in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico last month. I was too scared to bring my P4P, but I wish I had.
While there, I asked anyone I could find about flying a drone. None of the local police, Federales, or resort security said there was any problem flying a drone. In fact when I asked, they all looked at me like, "Why would there be any problem?"

Of course, I can imagine, that it really just depends who you encounter and what they believe the law is. Same thing in the US.
