For $500 a night, you and your significant other could scoop up a pretty rockin’ AirBnB in Costa Rica, but the Hotel Costa Verde’ in the country’s coastal rainforest region is offering up even more bang for your buck with its latest suite.
The treetop hotel has built using a two-bedroom suite out of a vintage Boeing 727 airplane it salvaged from the San Jose airport. It had to be disassembled and shuttled into the Costa Rican jungle by five separate trucks, where it was then placed atop a 50-foot pedestal in order to give occupants some spectacular ocean and jungle views.
The greasy old airplane seats and dated cabin trim has been ditched in favor of traditional Costa Rican teak paneling. Designers split the plane up into two bedrooms, each with a private en-suite, and also worked in a kitchenette, dining area and covered entrance area.
According to Curbed, the plane has been pretty popular among travellers and was even featured on an episode of Animal Planet’s Ultimate Treehouses and HGTV. Might want to plan that Costa Rican vacation well ahead of time.
