‘Echo 3’ was filmed entirely in a fascinating location in Colombia and partially in New Mexico. The shooting started on June 9, 2021, and it lasted for eight months before it was wrapped up on February 1, 2022. 

The entire shoot of ‘Echo 3’ was shot in Colombia across different locations, including Bogota, Cartagena, and other islands in the country. Colombia, or the Republic of Colombia, is a South American nation with an island chain extending into North America. It is surrounded by the Caribbean Sea on its northern border, Venezuela on its eastern, Brazil on its southeast, Ecuador and Peru on its southern border, the Pacific Ocean on its western, and Panama on its northwest. 

The team of Echo 3 lasted there for eight months and travelled from Bogota to the jungle to Cartagena in the north of the country and ended up shooting on the islands.  

Other notable shows and films were also shot in the location of Colombia as ‘Cannibal Holocaust,’ ‘Narcos,’ ‘Mile 22,’ and others. This city is known for its diversity in culture and rich natural beauty, also known as the city of love and peace. Colombia was definitely the best location for the shoot of Echo 3.
