(Via Today in the Sky) Have you ever wanted to sleep in a 727? Oh wait, if you’re over the age of 30, you probably have slept in a 727 (albeit poorly, and in the smoking section). But did you ever want to sleep in a 727 in the Costa Rican jungle? No? I don’t blame you. But if you’re like me and a bunch of other idiots, this actually sounds appealing.
The Hotel Costa Verde in Manuel Antonio has converted a 727 into a 2-bedroom hotel suite that actually looks quite nice. For just $500/night ($400 in the low season), you can sleep in the aircraft that has been outfitted with teak furniture, air conditioning, and an aluminum tray of food (OK, that last part isn’t true). While lots of people have talked about converting aircraft into various habitations, I’m only aware of this one and the 747 that has been converted into a hostel in Stockholm.
