We have just converted the cockpit section of a McDonnell Douglas, MD-80 fuselage, into an amazing residence built into a steep jungle hillside. Like our world renowned Boeing 727 Fuselage Home just 100 meters away, Costa Verde's Cockpit Cottage will also become world famous with the latter having been featured in hundreds of TV shows and publications since it first landed here in 2008.
Experiencing the ocean view from your king size bed will make this jungle bungalow the best part of your stay in Manuel Antonio. Access is by a hanging suspension bridge through our lush jungle, providing for total privacy and a beautiful setting for our first class brand of tropical luxury.
The studio one bedroom suite has elegantly refinished teak interiors and an efficiency kitchen with microwave, coffee maker, stovetop and refrigerator. Sip your morning coffee surrounded by monkeys, sloths, toucans, coatimundis and dozens of species of wildlife from your very private deck perched above Manuel Antonio National Park. The view of the white sand beach is brilliant and sunsets will leave you breathless.
The intimate Cockpit Cottage sleeps 2 guests, and is often rented in tandem with the world famous 727 Fuselage home, which sleeps 6 , also listed on VRBO # 577384 .
Our guests have access to all the resort property amenities of Hotel Costa Verde including wifi, housekeeping, front desk concierge services, hiking trails, 3 pools, massage services, yoga classes, and 4 restaurants within a short walk:

La Cantina BBQ ( my personal favorite)
Lights up the main drag at night with our large wood fire BBQ. Relax and listen to the live rhythms of reggae and Latin music put on by the Jungle Boys. Enjoy the outdoor atmosphere and try one of our specialties such as premium cuts of beef, BBQ pork ribs, various fish and meat kabobs or whole Red Snapper.
Offers a lush jungle ambiance with a punch of color from the wild mosaic tiled floor featuring larger-than-life exotic animals. The kids will want to see this and find the birds, butterflies and sea horses. Hang out and fill up on fast and tasty food such as: Hebrew National hot dogs, wood fired pizza, nachos, the best 100% beef burgers in town and REALLY cold beer.
Manuel Antonio is approximately 2.5 hours driving distance from San Jose airport ( SJO) , one hour south of Jaco Beach, on the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Manuel Antonio National Park is the # 1 destination for adventure in Costa Rica, encompassing rugged rainforest, white-sand beaches and coral reefs. It’s renowned for its vast diversity of tropical plants and wildlife, from three-toed sloths and endangered white-faced capuchin monkeys to hundreds of bird species. The park’s roughly 680 hectares are crossed with hiking trails, which meander from the coast up into the mountains. The cottage is a 5 min taxi from the park. Closed Mondays.
