Nicaragua rumored location for seasons 21 & 22, Philippines for seasons 23 & 24

realityblurred is reporting that Survivor 21 and 22 may be filmed back-to-back in Nicaragua, with seasons 23 and 24 taking place in Caramoan in the Philippines.

For production this summer, the show may go to Nicaragua, according to online chatter. That traces back to a Television Without Pity post, which cited its writers’ parents conversation with a crew member while on vacation. That’s obviously a flimsy source, though the geography in Nicaragua—which is now tourist-friendly, unlike in the 1980s—makes it seem probable, as does its camera-friendly environment. And after two back-to-back island locations, I’d also expect that the show will move to an inland, non-island location for the next two seasons, and then back to islands again.

There’s more concrete reporting about the filming location that would be used for the seasons filmed in 2011, which is Caramoan, in the the Camarines Sur province of the Philippines. The Philippine Daily Inquirer reported that “A top executive of the provincial government, who asked not to be named because negotiation was still ongoing, revealed that ‘Survivor USA’ would also be filmed here next year until 2012. Its production crew searched many areas in the Philippines and found Caramoan the most ideal place for filming because of its unique geographical features and available facilities that meet production standards.”

    i lived in nicaragua on the pacific coast in a village named san juan del sur. it’s gorgeous, and by no means a difficuly place to “survive” in. however, go an hour or so, in any direction, other than south to costa rica, and it’s pretty scarce and isolated. so, nicaragua….depends on where in the country.

    Amber: Well I live in Australia and it was the same thing… it’s hilarious to see them survive in such a place.

    But then, we live in comfort… what would it be if we were in their situation with no comforts?

    Nicaragua is beautiful and very tourist friendly now. There are several vast and expansive areas to the country as well where “Surviving” will be perfect. Amber, my father-in-law has several vacation homes in Nicaragua including one on the beach about an hour from Leon on the Pacific Side. I am really looking forward to the next season.
