Real Boeing 727 Airplane Converted In Authentic Hotel In Costa Rica


The Costa Verde hotel. It is a fully outfitted two bedroom, Boeing 727 suite in Costa Rica. Located within tropical rainforest, Hotel Costa Verde’s rather unusual fuselage suite consists of a refurbished vintage 1965 Boeing 727 airframe. The aircraft was part of South-Africa Air in her previous life. Sitting atop a 50-foot pedestal just beyond a majestic national park, the remodelled jumbo jet’s interior is entirely Costa Rican teak panelling with Indonesian teak furniture and also features a private entrance up a river rock.


For those who haven’t yet tired of sleeping on aircraft, this unique suite on the edge of the jungles of Manuel Antonio offers stunning sky high balcony views of the Pacific Ocean as well as the opportunity to spot the local treetop wildlife, which includes toucans, sloths and monkeys.


Carefully transported into five trucks to the jungles of Manuel Antonio the plane was resurrected into a unique jumbo hotel suite. At this height, you can enjoy scenic ocean and jungle views from the hard wood deck built atop the plane’s former right wing.


The plane’s interior is Costa Rican teak paneling from the cockpit to the tail. Furnishings are hand-carved teak furniture from Java, Indonesia.


The 727 home features two air conditioned bedrooms, each with its own private bath, dining area foyer; an ocean view terrace; a private entrance up a river rock, spiral staircase; and 360 degrees of surrounding gardens.

Costa Rica is in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Caribbean Sea to the east.
