Edward Michael “Bear” Grylls traded the “wild” for “paradise” when he arrived in Costa Rica on Nov. 14, The Tico Times confirmed with the Immigration Administration. The Discovery Channel reality TV star is still in Costa Rica as of this writing.

Since Grylls, who is one of the youngest people to scale Mt. Everest, is still in country, Costa Rica is likely the location for the survival series he mentioned.
In 2013, Grylls filmed “Escape from Hell,” where he traveled to Guatemala to retell three survival stories there. The former British Special Forces soldier also recently announced a new YouTube Channel called “Bear Grylls Adventure.” The “Man vs. Wild” TV program ran from 2006 to 2011 on the Discovery Channel.
