Vintage Boeing 727 Turned into Luxorious Hotel in Costa Rica Jungle.
Good news for flight fanatics – an old jumbo jet destined for scrap has been salvaged and converted into a luxury hotel suite.
The Costa Verde resort near Manuel Antonio National Park is home to the former passenger jet that was converted into a two-bedroom, two-bathroom suite with a kitchenette, flat-screen TVs, a dining room, a terrace with a sea view teak paneling. One night in the suite runs about $500.
A shining example of what creativity and recycling can achieve, the hotel owners rescued this 1965 Boeing 727 from a rusty airport graveyard and placed it in the Jungle canopy by the beautiful Costa Rican coastline. The team cut it into pieces and transported it by truck and crane to where it now sits, gazing out over the warm ocean waters. Oh, and technically, I don’t think you can join the mile high club as the plane is only 50 ft from the ground. Good to know. However, you do get amazing views and the chance to relax on the balconies that rest on each wing. The suite is 2 bedrooms and although it looks like the plane has made a crash landing, inside it contains all the luxury you can expect from this unique and unusual hotel. You can tour the jungle and explore the stunning surroundings of the national park setting. Watch out for the monkeys! As part of the resort, there are pools and two restaurants serving traditional sea food.
