A Boeing 727, which costs around $500,000 was transformed by a hotel owner into one of the most awesome suites ever! Allan Templeton, owner of Hotel Costa Verde in San Antonio Manuel jungle, received this plane from the Costa Rica airport after being retired.
If you decide to stay here, you are really getting yourself into a great adventure. If being surrounded by the jungle is not one-of-a-kind enough, then I guess staying in an aircraft would do the trick. Look at the wonderful photos below.
The old plane before its BIG transformation.
Five big trucks were used in order to transfer the entire plane to the jungle.
Then, it was positioned in the Costa Rican jungle.
Balconies atop the plane's wings, and a 40-foot podium supports the plane's front tip.
Such a beautiful work of art!
Creativity is oozing everywhere!

This is probably THE BEST airplane bathroom ever!
Dining area or living area? Either way, it is awesome!
High ceiling living area makes the room look unbelievably spacious.
The entire hardware is covered with premium teak wood from Java, Indonesia
Templeton declares the suite plane 'earthquake-proof'.
The view of the jungle and the beach from the 'winged' balcony is just majestic.
A dreamy sunset view.

A World Explorer Travelled Around New Zealand In A Camper Van. This Is What He Saw.
Wow, makes me want to go to New Zealand!
Ever since we were kids, we used to dream of traveling around the world and most of us still carry that great desire or drive of pursuing it even now that we're grown-ups. We even have our 'bucket list' of places to visit and travel to. How convenient it would be to hop from one destination to another if you have the means but that's not it--passion and determination are also two important tickets to the wonders the world has in store for us.
Johan Lolos, a 27 year old Belgian world explorer and photographer is a living proof that we don't need so much to pursue our 'dream travel.' It was over a year ago when he left Europe to start his trip around the world, first in Australia where he spent the whole year and has also earned him a career as a landscape photographer.
He is currently staying in New Zealand where he started a 3-month road trip with friends. Johan fell in love with the place and is planning to stay until September of this year to witness and photograph winter in Wanaka . His awesome adventure began in an inexpensive camper van which is the most popular method for getting around the place while keeping their expenses down at the same time.
10 Amazing Archaeological Finds That You’ve Probably NEVER Heard of in Your Life
Why nobody is talking about these?
When I was a kid, I spent a great deal of time watching documentaries about archaeological structures. I was so interested that it made me want to become an archaeologist someday. But then I grew up. Don't get me wrong, I'm still interested in archaeology, but I realized that I'm better-off taking care of sick people than digging up artifacts and brushing off dust from them. The good thing about being an archaeologist, though, is that you get to discover incredible places and unearth antique relics. But still, the possibility that you'll come across a violent mummy remains.
One of the reasons why I wanted to become an archaeologist back then was that I wanted to discover amazing places with really cool histories. I dreamt of visiting famous archaeological structures such as the Machu Picchu in Peru and the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. But, I found out that there are less known archaeological sites that are equally incredible. Some of these archaeological structures are so perfectly and intricately built, it'll make you wonder if aliens really came to help build them.

Gem-Studded Teeth Reveal Remarkable Skills Of Ancient Mayan Dentists
We’re not sure why the trend did not catch on and reach modern times but would you be willing to try this awesome Mayan dentistry fad?
The ancient Mayan civilization has always been fascinating to study, especially because of the amazing architecture and many great achievements.
Its colossal pyramids have lasted thousands of years yet these were only made using crude tools. Surely, this prowess in architecture surpasses the talents of this period.
But would you believe the Mayans also practiced advanced dentistry? Well, we’re not talking here about dental implants using titanium screws and metal-ceramic crowns used by modern dentists to replace teeth after extraction but of an entirely different kind of implants.
