Summer officially begins in just a few days (for some of us), and what better way to kick things off than by looking at an actual hotel made from a decommissioned Boeing 727. This one-of-a-kind suite at the Hotel Costa Verde in Costa Rica is set inside a 1965 Boeing 727 airplane that transported globetrotters on South Africa Air and Avianca Airlines.

“The two-bedroom, two-bathroom suite also includes a kitchenette, flat-screen tvs, a dining room, and a terrace with an ocean view. We can’t really agree with their choice of furnishings, which are made from teak and shipped across the Pacific from Indonesia, but at least they were hand carved. The tip-to-tail paneling on the inside is also teak, but it was harvested locally in Costa Rica. Like the Jumbo Jet Hostel in Stockholm, this hotel suite is sure to offer jet-setting travelers a lovely location for an extended layover,” reports Inhabitat.
