Why Containers

Image

El Faro Beach Hotel was built in 2014 and our biggest concern back then, was to cause minimum impact to the environment because we are located right next to Costa Rica’s most famous national park. 

Many creative ideas where discussed, but the investors decided to go for something completely new at that time and that is how the first CONTAINER Hotel in Costa Rica was born.

After overcoming many challenges 50 recycled containers were turned into cozy little rooms, perched upon the hill.

Every part recycled from the container structure were used within the building; the locking bars were transformed into hand rails and the doors were used as retaining walls.

When you walk around the property you can see the raw materials popping up revealing the true foundation of this hotel, but it is not the case when you are inside our unique rooms.
