Turns out private planes aren’t just for the super rich, and you might just be able to get away in one – for a few nights, at least.

If you fancy fulfilling all your airborne dreams, you should know that you can now stay the night in this Boeing 727, perched in the treetops in the Costa Rican jungle. The red plane is suspended on a 15-foot platform within the rainforest, allowing visitors to peep through the windows at some pretty incredible ocean views. You can even wander out onto the ‘terrace’ (aka the renovated wings of the plane) for a cocktail.

Inside, you can forget all about fighting for the aisle seat. The interior has been renovated to include three queensize beds, two bathrooms and that all-important TV to watch your fave in-flight films on. Oh, and your neighbours? Expect howler monkeys, sloths and more than 180 species of birds. 

The accommodation is just a short walk from the beach, and if seafood is your thing, the Pez Vela Marina in nearby Quepos is apparently renowned for its fish. Excursions through the spectacular rainforest – including waterfall visits and ziplining tours – can be arranged, too.

Prices start at around £511 ($690) per night for six people. Find out how to book the plane here
