Film crews use Puerto Rico marina as backdrop

For the second time in a little more than a month, The Yacht Club Palmas Del Mar in Puerto Rico was used as a backdrop for film crews capturing Puerto Rico for the big and small screen.

The first was a Lifetime Network production titled "One Hot Summer," which is slated to air on the network sometime this fall. The second filming, just completed, was an Italian series "Angels and Diamonds," which is described as Italy's version of "Charlie's Angels."

"I would say that the 'Angels and Diamonds' production attracted the most amount of attention from the Palmas Del Mar community. We had a 77-foot yacht anchored just off our breakwall, and there were [personal watercraft] circling around and fake gunshots coming from the bow - it was quite a scene," general manager Tim Keogh said in a statement.

The Yacht Club Palmas Del Mar is a new 168-slip marina located on the South East Coast of Puerto Rico. Marina Management Services of Boca Raton, Fla. operates the marina.
