    Anna Haines

    Set on an over 200-acre private conservation reserve on a remote Panamanian island, this eco-lodge is a dream for the budding environmental scientist in the fam. You could spend all day on the property hanging out with the sloths and monkeys, bird-watching from the 60-foot observation tower, or learning about (and tasting) the edible plants in the jungle with one of the resident nature guides. But the offsite excursions are not to be missed; think, snorkeling and kayaking through tangled mangroves, visiting a local Indigenous community, or a beach day on a nearby deserted island. The lodge is run by a family and everything is included in the price (even drinks!), so you can let all your planning stress melt into the Caribbean sea.

    19. Pacific Sands Beach Resort – Tofino, Canada

    Pacific Sands Beach Resort

    With its warmer temperatures, epic surf, and Pacific Rim Whale Festival, Tofino is a popular destination for all ages this time of year — but this oceanfront resort is ideal for those looking to be just outside all the action. These spacious beach houses feature 12-foot ceilings, decks and giant windows for whale-watching and mountain-meets-ocean views, full kitchens, and cozy fireplaces. Adventurous family members can brave the chilly waters with surf lessons at the neighboring surf school, all while art-lovers can take the complimentary shuttle into town to explore local First Nations art. Evenings look like nightly s’mores at the fire pit and family movies in the Surf Shack. Plus, their two-for-one Family Whale Watching package gets the whole family aboard the Chinook Princess for prime viewing of this month’s grey whale migration (plus family-friendly accommodation and unlimited movies and popcorn).

You'll also find some serious R&R alternating between hot and cold hydrotherapy pools, Finnish saunas, and ice rooms at the spa.

    22. Finca Luna Nueva – Costa Rica

    Anna Haines

    With expert staff offering lessons on sustainability, the owners call this eco-lodge a "living classroom" for good reason. Here you can feed the farm animals that made the fresh milk and yogurt in your breakfast buffet, tour (and taste) their on-site medicinal garden (home to 300 plants!), or learn about the lodge's regenerative agriculture efforts on one of many onsite rainforest trails. Plus, on-site rainforest night walks and the solar-heated jacuzzi awaits! With 60 percent of their food grown on-site, the kids will return home not only as newly-converted veggie lovers, but with a newfound passion for protecting the planet.
