While chartering a private jet may be too pricey, it turns out that sleeping in one is somewhat affordable. With a soft spot for wacky travel, TripAdvisor’s TripWatch newsletter recently highlighted the Hotel Costa Verde’s 727 Fuselage Home in Costa Rica’s Manuel Antonio National Park. Located fifty feet above the ground, this one-of-a-kind suite gives both travelers and aviation enthusiasts the opportunity to spend the night in a refurbished Boeing aircraft, complete with sleek wood paneling and a flat screen TV.
With nightly rates ranging from $400 – $500, the suite features two air-conditioned bedrooms, a kitchenette and gorgeous views of the surrounding flora and fauna. According to TripAdvisor member TravelingCatLady, “Yes, the 727 suite is on the expensive side, but we thought it was totally worth it to live for a day in our own plane and sip sunset drinks on the terrace over the wing.”
If the price tag of flying high in the 727 Fuselage Home is too steep, TripAdvisor travelers gave the Hotel Costa Verde an 83 percent approval rating, ranking it 19 out of 48 hotels in Manuel Antonio National Park. Offering a multitude of lodging options including houses, bungalows and traditional hotel rooms, average nightly rates range from $60 – $209. While there, travelers recommend spending time enjoying the gorgeous beaches, spotting the many monkeys that roam around the property, and trying a boat or hiking tour of Manuel Antonio National Park.
