Just a half-mile from an entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park, Hotel Costa Verde affords stunning views of the foliage, wildlife and ocean below. But our favorite part — and the hotel’s biggest claim to fame — is the 727 Fuselage Home, a 1965 Boeing 727 airframe. The airplane suite offers enough room for six guests, making it perfect for families. It has a kitchenette and ocean view terrace as well. The hotel also has a Cockpit Cottage for two guests (grandparents?), and a variety of houses and bungalows.
The hotel has several dining options onsite, and guests can arrange excursions from the property. Popular outings include ziplining, sea kayaking, horseback riding, catamaran tours and of course, adventures in Manuel Antonio National Park.

Overall great hotel experience, hotel staff was friendly and the food was excellent. Upon arrival had a quick and friendly check in followed by an escort to our room. The wildlife on the property is unreal, a nice addition to our stay here. Lastly, this hotel is well positioned in Manuel Antonio area, pretty easy to get anywhere from here.
We enjoyed our stay very much the rooms were very nice. A lot of walking with the hills up and down but very good exercise. Just wish it was a easier way to get down the beach. We found out you could take the city bus which is good.
