The crew for Survivor have arrived in San Juan del Sur Nicaragua where they’ll be shooting two episodes of the Emmy-Award winning reality television series. The show will follow 20 contestants as they compete for 40 days to survive on the beaches of San Juan del Sur. The format splits the participants into two tribes to compete for rewards or immunity. The last remaining contestant wins a US$1 million dollar prize.
Nicaragua is slowly emerging as a permanent fixture on the world tourism map and hosting the popular Survivor show will help strengthen the country’s position. A typical Survivor series is watched by 15 million Americans per week and airs in over 100 countries worldwide.
The crew are receiving a warm welcome at the top Nicaragua hotels and the town of San Juan del Sur is buzzing in anticipation of the start of the series.
