Going green doesn’t mean giving up luxuries at this eco-chic getaway about 15 miles north of the Costa Rica border. Perched in the forest, open-sided bungalows await guests, who can fall asleep to the sound of the Pacific and wake to the calls of monkeys.

Eco cred: The 4,400 acres remain a nature preserve and sustainable tree farm, where 1.5 million trees have been planted in the past decade.

Insider’s tip: Order a rum drink. Sugarcane is grown on site, and the resulting molasses is distilled to produce a sweet, potent spirit.
