HGTV has been in San Pedro and around Belize filming their popular show House Hunters International before, but this time around they were in Ambergris Caye, filming for a new show called Beachfront Bargain Hunt. Ambergris Today was up close and personal with the film crew and was able to get a first-hand experience during the filming of the series on Home and Garden TV.
On Friday, March 20, the film crew was at Solitude condominiums just north of the Boca del Rio Bridge where the house-hunting couple was filmed overlooking the property, amenities and living accommodations of the residential building. Local realtor Brittnay McCann of Belize Sotheby’s International Realty was on hand to showcase the property to the buying couple.
The film crew had already been shooting footage around town and in North Ambergris Caye, following the couple around the island. After shooting in San Pedro, the crew indicated that they will be traveling to southern Belize in Placencia to film another episode of HGTV’s Beachfront Bargain Hunt.

This series documents the journeys of families who are dreaming of living in a sandy locale with palm trees and warm ocean breezes, but those dreams are accompanied by a firm budget. Most of the time that budget is substantially short of a million dollars. The house hunters tour three to four waterfront properties - each with surprisingly affordable price tags - before choosing the one that turns the beach lifestyle dreams into reality.
