How a Sustainable Paradise in Panama Became a 'Shitty Suburb'

On a new episode of 'JUNGLETOWN,' the interns worry Kalu Yala is losing touch with its eco-friendly roots.

On a new episode of VICELAND's JUNGLETOWN, the folks running a sustainable village in Panama alarm their interns when all traces of "sustainability" disappear from Kalu Yala's website. Those who joined the project with a dream of building the first truly eco-friendly town fear they've been duped—accusing founder Jimmy Stice of turning Kalu Yala into nothing more than a "shitty suburb."

JUNGLETOWN airs Tuesdays at 10 PM on VICELAND.
