Does "a steaming jungle" mean "a jungle full of water vapours"?


--------------
November 4, 2016 - Deep in the heart of a steaming jungle, a ramshackle mining town is full of dangers like mudslides, snakebites, and tropical diseases. Even getting here is an adventure that requires a small plane, a day spent navigating seething rivers, or a hair-raising 4x4 ride over ungraded roads. There are few comforts here and, apart from items in a small camp commissary, almost nothing to buy.

It's metaphorical. "Steaming" means hot and humid.

Note that "steam" and "vapour" are not one and the same.
