Crash In a Jet Plane Hotel

Near a beach that’s within Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica, the Hotel Costa Verde doesn’t lack for great sights. But few are as amazing as its own 727 Fuselage Suite, a salvaged 1965 Boeing 727-100 that looks as if it’s crashed into the Costa Rican jungle (it’s actually mounted atop a 50-foot pillar and reached via a spiral staircase). The jet’s interior was once able to hold up to 125 passengers, but there are few reminders left of its days in the service of South African Airways and Colombia’s Avianca Airlines. The suite’s two bedrooms, dining area, and sitting room are now covered over entirely in teak to match the surroundings. Guests can play “spot the toucan” on the small wood deck that sits on top of the right wing.

I would love to stay at this hotel.  Costa Rica was one of my all time favorite vacations.  It was the kind of vacation that makes you rethink priorities and can alter your future.  Rainforests, volcanoes, farmers plowing fields on the side of the mountain with matched oxen, banana farms, ocean – it has everything.  Now is has an airplane as a hotel!  I’ve gotta go back soon!

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Jonathan Litt was an amazing coach during my job search.

    The thing that stands out to me the most is you can tell he truly cares. He helped me gain self confidence through phone calls and was constantly checking in on me during the interview process. Not only was I able to acquire a great job with the help of Jonathan, but I received incredible insight. He is a very smart guy and is able to effectively explain his thoughts in a simple manner.          

    Thank you so much!

  • Karen Horton is personable, knowledgeable, and was instrumental to my Career Goals.

    Communication and correspondence with her was easy and fast and her feedback always proved very useful during the recruitment process.  With other recruiters I have dealt with in the past, I've usually had the impression that I was merely part of a quota of applications. This was not so with Karen, I am convinced that she had my best interest in mind as well as those of the company she was "hunting" me for.    

    I cannot thank Karen enough for all her assistance in what I am sure will be a long lasting relationship with my new employer.

    Regards,
