Aircraft fuselage hotel, Costa Rica

You could join the Mile High Club with ease and comfort at this Costa Rica retreat, if only the plane in question were a little further off the ground. Still, as quirky hotels go, you won’t find many to match this converted Boeing 727 in Costa Rica.

The Costa Verde Hotel has created a luxury two-bedroom suite in the fuselage of the aircraft, and hoisted it up into the treetops and though it crash-landed and was converted into a treehouse by survivors. Not that your average treehouse has a kitchen, air-con and en suite bathroom.

The plane looks over Manuel Antonio National Park near Quepo, and you’ll find another converted plane nearby which is in use as a restaurant.
