This region is a remarkable destination for commercials, features, photoshoots and television. As a tropical destination, the area offers an incredible amount of diversity. Solitary beaches, majestic volcanoes, lush rain forest, spectacular waterfalls, colonial architecture and vibrant cities.

Costa Rica's long tradition in eco-tourism and conservation has promoted the development of an impressive amount of hotel infrastructure in rural areas making it easy to access and work in remote areas of the country that offer the natural and preserved locations that filmmakers and photo productions seek in a tropical location. A strong democratic tradition, safety and the people of Costa Rica are the main reasons people visit this peaceful Central American country. Although Costa Rica has no formal film commission the government, through several different agencies, has always been very supportive of film activities and photo production

Panama has always been an important logistical hub in the Americas, and has taken important steps in fomenting the film industry by creating the Panama Film Commission, which in turn has begun to attract international film support companies that supply equipment and other services to the region. Panama offers unique locations such as a bustling  metropolis and beautiful colonial architecture.

Nicaragua is a diamond in the rough. It is the largest of this trio of neighboring countries and it is home to some of the most spectacular lakes, volcanoes and colonial towns and cities in Central America.

All three countries offer non-union film crews, no minimums on foreign crews, competitive rates on rooms, and easy international access offered by all major US and European airline carriers.

The area worked for directors David Ayer, Ridley Scott, Frank Marshall, Robert Rodriguez, Mel Gibson and M. Night Shyamalan in their search for locations that served as the New World, the Congo, and a tropical paradise. This trio of countries can easily be labeled the best tropical film and photography locations closest to the United States facilitating, safe inexpensive travel for crew and equipment as opposed to going further south or to Asia.
