Filming Location Info

Filming site is reported to be 45 minutes South of San Juan Del Sur near Costa Paraiso, Ostional  (cliff-surrounded, forested setting makes for a rather private stretch of beautiful oval-shaped coastline) and Pochote, very close to the Costa Rica border.  San Juan del Sur is the most popular travel and vacation destination on Nicaragua's Pacific coast

The most famous beach south of San Juan del Sur is the La Flor beach. This beach is a protected wildlife reserve because of the vast arrival of Olive Ridely turtles during massive arribadas that take place every year between July and January.
Costa Paraíso is located about 45 minutes south (drive or boat ride) of San Juan del Sur, between the two small fishing villages of Ostional and Pochote. Costa Paraiso is just several miles from the Costa Rica border and features:
  • dry tropical rainforest, white sand beaches, volcanic tidepools
  • an agricultural region of Nicaragua where papayas, bananas, sugar cane, rice, water melon and mangoes are cultivated

'The Survivor for Slackers'
(By Blind Freddy - 5.12.10)

With the budget cutbacks from CBS playing the wet blanket role, the Survivor location scouts have nicely countered the play with this move. And the cast might have a win-win choice facing them each week. Do I stay or do I go?
