The airplane was transported piece by piece from the San Jose airport to its current resting place on a pedestal 50 feet above the beach. It looks a bit like a model airplane on a stand, and we can only imagine the spectacular views from the balcony and the airplane windows.
Vintage 1965 Boeing 727 Transformed into Hotel in Costa Rica
Although it may seem as a wrecked airplane taken over by the tropical forest, hotel Costa Verde was constructed out of salvaged airplane pieces form the San Jose airport to resemble a crashed plane. The unique accomodation is set in the jungle of Manuel Antonio at the edge of the National Park in the Costa Verde Area II. To offer the plane great views of the ocean and to offer the visitors the sensation of actually flying over the topical forest, the hotel was assembled on a 50- foot pedestal. The vintage 1965 Boeing 727 hosts two bedrooms, tv area, a small kitchen, dining area, bath and a wing balcony with a wondrous view of the ocean and on the top of the plane’s right wing you can find a wooden deck from which you can admire the wonders of the tropical forest surrounding you. This surreal holiday destination might seem a bit over the top and it really is, but if you enjoy some adventure and you appreciate wild experiences, this one of a kind airplane hotel is your perfect destination.
