This Abandoned CIA Aircraft Might Be The Most Unique Bar On Earth

Nestled in the jungle of Costa Rica, El Avion is an American C-123 Fairchild military airplane that now houses a quirky bar and restaurant.

The plane is a military craft from the Cold War which was bought during the Iran-Contra Affair, a famous scandal in American history. The C-123 was eventually abandoned at an air strip in San José and later purchased in 2000 when it was shipped to its current cliff-side resting place.

"Now, our C-123 has been retired to less risqué endeavors as a restaurant, bar and an enduring Cold War relic," writes El Avion's owners. "Join us for food under its wings, drinks in the fuselage pub or climb into the cockpit!"

The two-story bar is well known for their fresh seafood dishes. Expect classics like fried calamari, coconut shrimp, and exotic tropical cocktails. Learn more from their website.
