The Vela project was filmed exclusively at Sailfish Bay Lodge on the Pacific Coast of Guatemala. We can't find enough good things to say about the accommodations, fishery, and the owner Scott Ruprecht. Scott, we deeply appreciate all of your efforts and personal sacrifice to make Vela a reality. We could not have done this without you. Thank you for your support and friendship!
