Too Hot to Handle is Netflix’s latest dating show, which seeks to become a favorite among the young audience. With the first season already available, many people might wonder about the spectacular location where this series was filmed.

Many Vallarta · Nayarit’s residents and visitors could be surprised, as the location is closer than you might think. This eight-episode series was filmed at Casa TAU, an exclusive private villa located within Punta Mita. Composed of five separate villas, this venue can normally accommodate up to 26 people, so there really was enough room for the 10 cast members: Chloe Veitch, Francesca Farago, Sharron Townsend, David Birtwistle, Matthew Smith, Nicole O’Brien, Rhonda Paul, Haley Cureton, Kelz Dyke and Harry Jowsey.

“We literally scoured the world to find the perfect location. There was a great offer of exclusive properties, but this villa was the right one to film our show”, mentioned Laura Gibson, series creator.

The premise of the show is simple, but with a totally unexpected twist: a group of single people head to a villa to find love, but they are not allowed to kiss or go beyond simple courtship. If they break the rules, they risk slashing the 100,000 USD prize. Will they behave well or fall into temptation? You can find out on Netflix.

“We started to advertise in Vallarta Lifestyles because since its beginnings and to date it keeps using modern technological equipment to produce it and it is possible to notice that in the quality of the magazine, which offers interesting topics about the life of our destination through its articles and interviews to well known personalities. Actually, I keep a collection in my personal library.”

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”

“Among other things, Vallarta Lifestyles stands out for its strong presence throughout our destination, from five stars hotels to brand new condominiums, where they finally find the type of clients that we look for. For all of us is very important to be in print media to strengthen our advertising strategy and this magazine is essential to achieve it.”
