Interesting! I've stayed at that resort before (Costa Verde) and it is fantastic and unbelievably beautiful. The owner of the property is apparently this eccentric millionaire, and he collects all sorts of vintage transport machinery. When you check in, you do so in an old refurbished rail car, and their most famous restaurant (which is open to the public) is El Avion...an old C-123 perched on a hill. See here:

The food is great, and the people are even greater. Thanks for posting...you've brought back some of the best memories of my life!

That looks like a very cool resort. Must put that on my 'someday' list...
