St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands

Only a few miles east of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. John has virtually nothing in common with its overdeveloped neighbor. More than 60 percent of the island and its surrounding waters are comprised of Virgin Islands National Park. One visit and you realize you've reached the Caribbean of yore, a tropical landscape not in the least bit affected by cruise-ship infestation that...

Roseau, Dominica

The island of Dominica offers an alternative to the standard white-sand-and-surf Caribbean setting: rocky, black beaches at the edges of an untamed jungle; gnarled banyan trees that line the pathways to secluded waterfalls; volcanic gases that belch into mud cauldrons and underwater bubble streams...

If you're so inclined, you can also find a patch of white sand on which to place your...

SAN JUAN DEL SUR, Nicaragua

In 1998, when the Ponçon family purchased the 2,500-acre Nicaraguan farm where Morgan's Rock now stands, the land was occupied by squatters who were cutting down old-growth trees, stealing eggs from nesting sea turtles, and generally living in a way that threatened the sustainability of the rainforest.

Now many of those individuals are on the lodge's payroll, working to protect...

Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

When Minnesota natives John and Karen Lewis sold everything they owned in 1990 to buy 930 acres of Costa Rican rainforest, they had a unique vision in mind: an ecotourism destination that would conserve the country's last lowland tropical rainforest, enhance nearby communities, and offer travelers a luxurious escape to nature.

By all accounts, they succeeded beyond even their own...

Greenville, ME

Opened in 1873 as a timber camp for those tough-as-bark men who chopped down trees and then rode atop the logs on rapid-churning rivers to the paper mill, Little Lyford made the transition to a sporting camp at the turn of the 19th century. "Sports," as they would call them, would take the long train ride from Boston and New York to fish for native brook trout on the waters of the West Branch...

DAINTREE, Australia

A highlight of any trip to Port Douglas, Australia, north of Cairns, is a trip into dense and primeval Daintree Rainforest. Supposedly 16 times older than the Amazon and a UNESCO World Heritage site, Daintree is home to rare plants like giant strangler figs and dinosaur trees. Not only is the forest rich with bird life, but you might also spot pythons, lizards, frogs, the sky-blue Ulysses...

Cameron, MT

When word spread that Papoose Creek Lodge in southwestern Montana was shutting down in late 2007, the eco-lodging community gasped that the first of the country's luxury green resorts was closing its doors. But the mourning was short-lived when it was announced that the nearby private residence of Papoose Creek's founders, Roger and Cindy Lang, was being remodeled and renovated into a lush...

Guangdong, China

When a Chinese development company initiated meetings with Keija villagers in the Nankun Mountain Nature Reserve, it signaled the start of a different sort of tourism project than China had ever seen: a collaboration between developers, community leaders, local craftsmen, and international experts in fields ranging from bamboo architecture to feng shui.

The result was a five-star...

Patagonia, Chile

Torres del Paine National Park in southern Chile is a twisted mass of monoliths and hoodoos that rise some 10,000 feet from the dry Patagonian steppe, seemingly piercing the clouds overhead. It's a dramatic glacial landscape where The Horns, a block of sweeping granite, rise majestically...

Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

All it takes is about an hour of driving in the back of a jeep at Kenya's magnificent Masai Mara National Reserve and visitors are mesmerized by the wealth of wildlife. Mara is Swahili for "dotted hillside" and if you look across the savannah, you'll spot giraffes, elephants, Cape buffaloes, zebras, baboons, lions lounging under tall acacia trees, impalas, and hordes of wildebeests, especially...
