Temptation Island 3 in 2003
On Roatan in the Bay Islands of Honduras, Central America?
Fox Studios camera and sound crews follow young couples up and
down the streets of quaint West End, filming every move and taking in
every sound during the day. At night, resorts such a Palmetto Bay Plantation
and well-known Roatan restaurants are set up for private dates and romantic
meetings and moments. These liaisons are interspersed with private day
trips to Roatan's tourist spots and to the Mayan Ruins of Copan.
Now Even More Famous
Shortly a high percentage of American and Canadian reality program
TV fans will know where TI3 was filmed. Yes, Temptation Island 3 was
shot in Roatan, Honduras and will be airing in the upcoming months.
Whether you are a reality TV fan or not, the program will be a must
see for those with an interest in Roatan and Honduras. The wonders
that many of us know exist will be displayed in their entire splendor
on the little screen. Previous Temptation Island series have provided
the host countries and locations with quality exposure and with huge
increases in Tourism and visitor numbers. Those in the know say that
this version will have especially high exposure for Roatan and Honduras.
Some may be interested in finding out what will happen during the
upcoming series. All a Roatan resident such as myself can say is,
"They came and now they have left." Each one of the Fox
Studios' personnel signed non-disclosure agreements, effectively sealing
the mouths of anyone directly involved. Even after plying the crew
with many drinks, not even minor accounting and logistical information
was divulged, let alone the steamier facts.
The best guide we can give Temptation Island fans about the upcoming
series is to be ready to see the beauty of Roatan and Honduras. Fox
could not have chosen a better location as a backdrop for a modern
day seduction story. White sandy beaches, a diverse underwater reef,
amazing red Caribbean sunsets, funky and laid back West End and the
many friendly faces that make Roatan's famous atmosphere were captured,
along with the wonders of a past world, the Mayan Ruins of Copan.
If you are a Temptation Island Fan you will surely want to beat your
friends, and especially the crowds, and visit Honduras in the footsteps
of Temptation. Here are a few travel tips:
West End Beach
Plan a few nights in West End dining in the restaurants where that
Temptation was played out. The atmosphere alone of these restaurants
leads a visitor to temptations of another kind, usually involving
food and drink.
If you are looking for serenity and isolation, give the East End
of Roatan a try. Miles of uncrowded beaches and verdant hills will
be your only distraction.
Though little is known about what happened on Fox's trip to Copan,
be sure to include an overnight trip into your plans, the ruins are
unforgettable and the town itself has a kind of charm and atmosphere
that is rare to find.
One last tip, hot tubs can be a seductive place and if you know what
does happen in the upcoming series and somehow the spa was involved,
you can check it out at its relocated home at Casa Calico in West
End where it stands in all its former glory. Though the Spa may have
seen its hottest nights, it is occasionally back in action with bubbly
fun, cool drinks and some Roatan heat.
So to reality program fans, keep your eyes on the TV guide or just
go ahead and plan your upcoming trip to Roatan and Honduras. For those
who can't come now, visit after you've seen what Roatan and Honduras
has to offer. Get the couch and popcorn ready as there is nothing
like some Temptation.
