History of Vintage BoeingThis vintage plane has quite a fascinating history behind it. It was once an aircraft that was capable of carrying nearly 190 passengers and was operated by South African Air and Avianca airlines. It was taken from the graveyard where it crashed near the San Jose Airport. In fact, after its retirement, it was placed in the San Jose airport, and then the owners of the Costa Verde Hotel took the airframe and divided into bits and pieces. Later, they assembled the parts in the jungle and started working on it.
With all their novelty they renovated this aluminium scrap into a masterpiece resembling the rustic jungle theme. To retain the essence of the plane the original cabin windows were kept intact. 727 Boeing has become a perfect combination of creativity and innovation as it is one of the most unusual hotels and genius work of art. The interiors are just so beautiful that it is truly a visual treat. This lavish suite is designed to perfection and has hand-carved teak wood furniture imported from Java and Indonesia and has all the standard amenities.
