Yes, the crew for Survivor is here! It’s exciting times for San Juan del Sur and the beaches of Hermosa and Yankee to the south. The hit reality TV show and Emmy-Award winner is currently being filmed here.
Survivor involves two “tribes” competing against each-other for rewards and immunity. The last remaining contestant wins US$1 million dollars in prize money. The Survivor crew will be here for several weeks as they are filming two episodes of the show in San Juan del Sur.
San Juan del Sur is buzzing and it’s practically impossible to get a hotel room. A typical series of Survivor airs in over 100 countries and is seen by around 15 million Americans per week. So that’s 15 million Americans learning about Nicaragua and San Juan del Sur.
San Juan del Sur is already the top tourism hotspot on the coast of Nicaragua. And with Survivor, it’s status on the world tourism map will only increase.
