Principal photography began in the jungles of Palenque, Mexico, near Villahermosa, Tabasco, during the last week of March 1986, but most of the film was shot in Mismaloya, just 30 minutes south of the Mexican beach town of Puerto Vallarta. The old set lies in a lush green jungle, which is now part of the leisure complex, El Eden.
