Summer Job Filming Locations
‘Summer Job’ is filmed in Mexico and Italy, specifically in the Riviera Maya and Milan. Since the participants travel from Italy to Mexico to spend their vacation, it makes sense that the filming unit shot several scenes of the inaugural iteration in both countries. Now, without further ado, let us take you through all the specific places you can spot in the Netflix show!
Riviera Maya, Mexico
Most of the pivotal sequences for ‘Summer Job’ season 1 were lensed in the Riviera Maya, a resort and tourist district situated along the Caribbean coastline of Quintana Roo. Specifically, the participants of the debut season stayed at a luxurious villa in this district with the vastness of the open waters right in front of them. The show has many aerial shots of this region’s white-sand beaches and pristine waters.
Several scenes were seemingly recorded in Playa del Carmen, a resort city that is a popular tourist destination. Moreover, since the participants get real jobs across the region, many scenes were taped at different sites in the Riviera Maya region.
A few portions of ‘Summer Job’ are also shot in Milan, Italy’s second most populous city. In particular, several exterior shots for the series are lensed in different parts of Milan, especially in and around Milan Linate Airport at Viale Enrico Forlanini in Segrate, located just outside of the city but within the Milan metropolitan area.
