It almost has to be the Pacific coast of Nicaragua.

It's not Nicaragua.

Aside from flora, what else can be seen on the beach which is noteworthy? Something is going on in some of these photos - what? The Colombian flag IS still a clue...

Is it a politically-Colombian island?

There is rainbow, so it has to be Ireland and there is a pot of gold at the end.

Failing that, is it a movie set?

While hiking along the coast, we sort of crashed the filming of a type of "reality" show. We were told to scram - of course we grabbed a few snaps while we could.

This was the Colombian version of a popular type of show. I'm not a fan of these shows at all and you don't have to be to chase this show or its location down. I'm only looking for the country it was filmed in.

These are, I hope, some solid clues...:)

I am hoping this appeals to participants on this thread who like a bit of a hunt..

Okay, so at least we are talking about a Colombian TV show...but not Sex Island.

OK, I looked it up and found out that the show was Desafío: La Lucha de las Regiones, La Piedra Sagrada 2011 and it was shot in the Dominican Republic but the exact location is not listed anywhere. The name of the show is partially shown on the banner, although I could only pick up the likely word "piedra" before I knew what I was looking for. I never realized that the Caribbean Sea technically ends at the southern coasts of Cuba and Hispaniola and the Western coasts of the Windward Islands, so their opposite coasts are on the North Atlantic.

So we are somewhere on the Atlantic coast of the DR.

Well done, Tony! You even gleaned some clues from the logo flag. This was filmed a few miles west of the town of Las Galeras, specifically at Playa Rincon.

While choosing these photos, I had to look up the name of the show because I forgot. There was actually another Colombian show quite similar, Expedicion Robinson, filmed about a handful of miles from the beach in my photos.

Take it away!
