Secrets of Summer: Where Was it Filmed?

‘Secrets of Summer’ is filmed entirely in Argentina, specifically in the Buenos Aires Province. The principal photography for the inaugural iteration of the series commenced in May 2021 and wrapped up after two months or so in July of the same year. Moreover, the sophomore season was seemingly lensed from March to May 2022. Now, without wasting time, let’s traverse all the specific sites that can be spotted in the Netflix series!

Buenos Aires Province, Argentina

All the pivotal sequences for ‘Secrets of Summer’ are lensed in and around Buenos Aires Province, Argentina’s primate province. The production team set up camp in Tigre to tape scenes against suitable backdrops. It is an independent city located west of the capital, at the highest point of the Rio de la Plata River delta. The Paraná and Uruguay rivers meet at the confluence to form the brown-gold river. Brazil serves as the source of both rivers. Watercourses that run across a vast region make up the river delta. Because of the numerous minor river branches, Tigre is sometimes compared with Venice.

Situated in the Paraná Delta, Tigre is famous for its rich culture and preserved eclectic European architecture, some of which you may spot in the backdrop of several scenes in the movie. The city is considered the nation’s industrial, financial, and commercial region, with tourism playing an essential role in its economy. Apart from tourists, Buenos Aires Province is also frequented by filmmakers for shooting purposes.
