Experience a Vintage Boeing 727.

Nowadays, hotels seem to run the gamut from treehouses to stargazing observatories to chateaux in the South of France to huts in the Amazon jungle; it seems the days of a standard room are far behind us. Today a hotel needs to do more than offer a warm bed, it needs to spark the imagination in some way. In the jungles of Costa Rica, the Hotel Costa Verde has refurbished a vintage 1965 Boeing 727 airframe into an unforgettable, luxury stay.

...And You Never Even Have To Leave The Ground. 

The airplane was salvaged from the San Jose airport and carefully transported to the jungles of Manuel Antonio where it now rests on the edge of the National Park. Perched on a 50-foot pedestal, the aircraft has been turned into the ultimate treehouse featuring 360-degree ocean and jungle views.

What is it like to stay in an airplane? Bedrooms feature hand-carved furniture imported from Indonesia, air conditioning, wood panelling, a terrace and private entrance. At the Hotel Costa Verde, you can live out the classic castaway fantasy without having to spend time with a volleyball named Wilson.

In Short:

  • Completely unique accommodation experience.
  • Vintage-airplane-turned-jungle-treehouse. As if that doesn't sound cool. 
  • 360-degree ocean and jungle views.
  • Totally stunning luxury interior.
