Plot Synopsis

From the rainforests of Costa Rica to the verdant paradises of Peru, adventurous homebuyers are leaving the hustle and bustle of city life to buy their dream homes in the middle of the jungle. Each half-hour episode of this series follows one buyer, as they search for their dream home in the jungle. This series, then known as JUNGLE LIFE, debuted on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 from 10-11pm ET/PT, as HGTV debuted back-to-back new episodes, but the cable channel had no other episodes on its schedule at that time. The first two episodes are:

"Going Off the Grid" (10pm): A Toronto couple is thrust into the reality of off-grid living as they search for a home with farmable land in the rain forests of Costa Rica. He wants a modern house with updated appliances, but she's looking for a rustic property surrounded by nature.

"ATVing Through the Jungle" (10:30pm): A couple from Bend, Oregon, is looking to slow down with a move to the tropical rain forests of southern Costa Rica. While they're drawn to the year-round warm weather, a pool is a must, and he wants to make sure they don't go too far off the grid.

Nine months later -- on Sunday, September 6, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT -- HGTV aired the official debut of this series, with a new title: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE. In the series opener, "Finding Healing in Costa Rica," Atlanta newlyweds relocate to Costa Rica's Guanacaste peninsula because they believe the jungle is the best environment for their therapy work. They hope to find a tranquil home surrounded by lush forest and breathtaking ocean views.
