    Hi! Where would a good place be to live and practice basic jungle survival? Somewhere where I can live on the beach and then be able to do daytrips into the jungle. A plus if the place is relative cheap and have street food or local markets.

    And, for what reason? Planning on bugging out to some tropical paradise?

    I vote for Thailand....

    Plenty of places like that up in the Cape York Peninsula of Australia....there are beaches....there is easily accessible jungle....food may not necessarily be cheap....you may begin a day trip into the jungle....you can't be guaranteed of returning tho, particularly if you are careless of where and when you swim.




    Oh by the way Bozen, welcome to SM. You might be surprised that learning basic jungle survival may not necessarily require a jungle. Plenty of times in the military I participated in JEWTS during drought conditions. (Jungle Exercise Without Trees) it just requires a little ingenuity and imagination.

    Any semi tropical or tropical swamp; Hawaii is another choice.

    The Army uses Sherman in Panama.

    Thanks for all the feedback so far!
    I think I will go with something in the west. What do you think would be the best this time a year? Ive narrowed it down to Costa Rica, Belize, Panama, Hawaii.

    Hawaii, and stop in and say hi to @Hanzo and @Bear . I intend to see Hawaii at least once before I die.
    Besides, if they can train the Mars probe folks there, jungle training aught to be doable.;)
