  • May 16, 2018

Add this to your bucket list world globetrotters: The Costa Verde Hotel in Costa Rica has added the 727 Fuselage Home to their resort, dubbing it “the most exclusive hotel suite” in the country. Built inside a vintage 1965 Boeing 727 airplane, the two-bedroom, beautifully design hotel suite gives you an illusion of flying. It is placed in the jungles of Manuel Antonio and features beautiful views of the country’s pristine coastline and lush flora.

In its previous life, the airplane once carried world travelers of South Africa Air and Columbia’s Avianca Airlines across the Pacific. Today, it is a “jumbo hotel suite” in the National Park of the Costa Verde Hotel and is lifted 50-feet above ground.

“Our refurbished Boeing 727 home is not the only such dwelling in the world. We were inspired by a Forbes Magazine article about a company offering hurricane-proof living via surplus Boeing 727 airframes!
