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!
