Pikaia Lodge, Galapagos, Ecuador
The Galapagos islands are a major bucket-list destination, and making Pikaia Lodge—an eco-resort tucked between two extinct volcanic craters—your home base is one of the best ways to experience the remote archipelago. By land, you can explore the private giant tortoise reserve and the white-sand Garrapatero Beach; by sea (or technically, by private yacht), you can scuba dive the crystal clear waters and motor over to uninhabited nearby islands. Pikaia is also practically carbon-neutral, a fact sustainable travelers will love. But it doesn’t skimp on any five-star amenities, like a wine cellar stocked with South American vinos.
Price: Nightly rates start at $1,120; exploration package rates start at $4,499
