Stripped of all its former interior components, the two-bedroom suite is now paneled in floor-to-ceiling locally sourced teak, and complete with a kitchenette and dining foyer. Guests can relax on the covered patio while mingling with native wildlife such as sloths, toucans, and monkeys.

Sweet Costa Rican Layover
Taking upcycling to the extreme, this retired Boeing 727 has been converted into a deluxe two-bedroom accommodation in Costa Rica. Formerly part of South Africa Air and Avianca Airlines, this airplane has received a second life as a luxury suite perched 50 feet above the beach at the edge of Costa Verde II’s National Park.
