Top 10 Reasons Why We Love Nicaragua

As we watched the opening scenes of the season premiere of CBS’ Survivor: Nicaragua last night, the scenery serving as a backdrop to the characters from both tribes kept reminding us why we love the place.  If you haven’t been to Nicaragua, you should go.  Trust us on that one.
