What’s more, Colombia is home to vast natural landscapes, offering filmmakers access to plenty of beaches, mountains, waterfalls and rivers, as well as desert landscapes, rainforests and land used for agriculture. Such agricultural lands include Cattle ranches, coffee plantations and Colombian crops, like bananas, rice, cocoa and corn.

Colombia is particularly well-noted for its out-of-this-world, tropical, underwater filming opportunities on San Andrés and Providencia Islands.

Columbia has recently been used for filming in various noteworthy and modern films including Gallows Hill (2013), The Motorcycle Diaries (2004), and Love in the Time of Cholera (2007).


The stunning capital of Colombia has a rich cultural history and cosmopolitan feel. There’s plenty to do and see, which is why it’s one of the more popular filming locations. Bogota is also ideal if you need us to source a crew for you, and hire equipment.

Medellin is the second-largest city in Colombia, which makes it an ideal alternative for film productions. Each year, there’s a flower festival and like many second cities, there’s a more artsy vibe.
