Plot Synopsis

CARIBBEAN LIFE is a half-hour reality series that follows families who are looking for a house in the Caribbean. In each 30-minute episode, a local realtor/broker helps a client find a new home by showing them three properties. Whether they've moved together from St. Louis to St. Croix or separately from the mainland to Puerto Rico, each client is now looking for a new home for their family. This series features the following local brokers: Chris Hanley, a realtor on St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands, who showed homes to Dave and Julie Sommer and Corinne Farinola & Patrick Kralik; Gustavo Martin, who showed properties on Vieques, Puerto Rico to clients like Carl and Janna Halberg and the La Porte Family; Arun Jagtiani, who revealed buying opportunities to Johnny Kelvin and Ona Struwer on St. Maarten; and Jonathan Schaede, who took Cliff and Janine Peek shopping for a home on St. Maarten. HGTV aired a sneak peek of this series on New Year's Day 2014, showing back-to-back St. Croix episodes at 3pm ET/PT. At that time, even though the production company had filmed at least six episodes, HGTV had no other episodes scheduled. Three months later, HGTV broadcast the official series premiere on Sunday, March 30, 2014 at 8pm ET/PT, showing back-to-back new episodes featuring Sint Maarten and Vieques,Puerto Rico. On Sunday, January 4, 2015, HGTV premiered the official second season premiere of CARIBBEAN LIFE, showing back-to-back new episodes from 9-10pm ET/PT, only three days after the cable channel broadcast a Season 2 sneak peek on New Year's Day 2015. In the season opener, a couple who owns a popular barbecue restaurant in West Virginia, wants to start a new life in St. Croix. Then, in the night's second episode, after fifteen years in Seattle, a worn down couple moves to Bocas Del Toro, Panama, where they can start a new life.
On Sunday, July 15, 2018 from 9-10pm ET/PT, HGTV premiered a new season of CARIBBEAN LIFE, debuting back-to-back new episodes:

"Grand Adventure on Grand Cayman" (9pm): A Canadian couple is tired of long winters in Toronto and wants to spend more time outdoors with their daughter. After falling in love with Grand Cayman on a snorkeling trip, they want to be as close to the water as possible so they can spend more time together and learn how to scuba dive as a family.

"Adios Miami, Hola Caribbean" (9:30pm): A bachelor with a hectic life in Miami Beach seeks a more laid-back lifestyle. He's dreamed of living where he can enjoy the beaches without fighting a crowd his whole life, but the high cost of big-city real estate keeps his goal out of reach. After discovering the north coast of the Dominican Republic, he's hoping to finally get the ocean view he's always wanted.
