How to make the most of 4 days in Costa Rica

Lisa tagged me in a Facebook post a few years ago. It was about a Boeing 747 made into a hotel. She said “twin, we have to do this.” I asked where and she didn’t know. After doing some Googling…this unique airplane hotel was located in Costa Rica and just like that this island made it…
