Galapagos Safari Camp, Santa Cruz Island, Ecuador

One of the world's most fascinating ecosystems, the Galapagos are as well protected as they are popular with nature-loving travelers. The Safari Camp, which boasts a lodge and nine platform tents with views overlooking the Pacific, borders Galapagos National Park. The tents have hardwood floors, electricity, climate control, and running water with flushing toilets, in addition to individual balconies complete with hammocks (they've also introduced a family suite that sleeps six). The camp has created a broad menu of activities, with safari options that range across land, air, and sea, including boat excursions to uninhabited islands nearby. Want to take it easy? Hang out at one of the most remote white sand beaches on Earth. [From $535/night including two meals; galapagossafaricamp.com]
