727 Fuselage Home – Quepos, Costa Rica - Atlas Obscura

727 Fuselage Home

Costa Rican accommodation resembles a crash site, but with a nice balcony. 


If you came upon the 727 Fuselage Home without context, you’d probably start looking around for emergency responders. Then you’d probably notice the rock pedestal, staircase leading up to the door and the balcony protruding from its wing and realize its just a spectacular, if not a little unnerving beachfront accommodation.

Built out of a 1965 Boeing 727, the bright red airplane has been completely revamped to create a luxurious hotel suite with wood finishes, rocking chairs and all the standard amenities of a hotel. Each piece of the airplane was brought from San Jose Airport to the Costa Verde Resort, restored and assembled. Tucked right into the rainforest canopy on a stone pedestal, the suite has incredible views over the trees out to the ocean and the beach.

For people looking to immerse themselves in Costa Rica’s wilderness, or maybe live out a Lost fantasy without any of the hassles of a real plane crash, the 727 Fuselage Home is a perfect alternative.
