Filming at the chankanaab national park
On our 8th day of filming Pablo picked us up for a short drive to Chankanaab National Park. Chankanaab is famous for a massive natural lagoon located inside the park; Chan means small and Kanaab means sea or ocean.
There were countless water activities to do there none of which were had time to do. A swim with the dolphins was what looked the most fun! Since the park is open to the public we had to wait to film after the park closed, which meant we had to alter our regular filming schedule. Filming is dependant of the sun not park closing times. The time change meant that we were shooting in the dead heat.
Poor Miranda and the camera crew almost fainted in the afternoon heat. No one did but it wasn’t the most fun of filming days. The place was amazing for its archeological replicas. It is worth a visit not in the dead heat of the day.
