Shipping Container Hotel in Costa Rica



About El Faro Beach Hotel

Welcome to Costa Rica's one and only sea container hotel where you'll enjoy all the amenities of a luxury hotel while promoting sustainability. Authentic shipping containers have been stylishly transformed into a unique eco-friendly hotel with private balconies and unparalleled views.

Our containers were produced in China for worldwide transport, and abandoned in the Costa Rican port of Limón. Compared to other hotel projects with a similar number of rooms, the construction time was 35% faster saving 60% in concrete and water consumption and producing only 1/4 of normal construction waste.

Situated in the hillside contours of Manuel Antonio National Park—listed by Forbes as one of the world's 12 most beautiful—and 400 meters (440 yd) from the white sand beach, El Faro offers you a tropical paradise setting for your holiday.
