Hawaii for Mexico

Previously there had been some confusion (don't worry, nothing major) over whether or not Hawaii was doubling for another city in Entourage. As I reported here, Vince and Turtle end up drowning their sorrow away at a beautiful Mexican villa after the financial and critical failure of Meddelin. After taking such a big hit, Vince and Turtle continuously waste their earnings -- riding jet skis and basically Turtle using his friendship with Vince to get laid.

Per confusion, Hawaii is doubling for Mexico in the season premiere -- "Fantasy Island". Here's a small press release on the situation:

HBO’s hit comedy series Entourage finished filming on Wednesday after a 2-1/2 day shoot here. The show stars Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly and Jeremy Piven. The Hawaii segment has two of the main characters coming to Mexico – Hawaii is standing in for south of the border – to escape from the stress of Hollywood. The characters vacation in a beach shack where they swim and ride jet skis until their agent arrives on a seaplane to retrieve them. The main location was Waimanalo Beach Park, near where the Fantasy Island house is set, and a couple of miles off Makua Beach where jet ski sequences were filmed coordinated by Brian Keauluana.
