Set on a 2,040-acre nature preserve, Tamarindo is a mini Eden where deer and armadillo wander through forests and fairways, and more than 150 species of birds take refuge on the 18-hole championship golf course. Golfers love the place, and so do families on weeklong vacations and couples desiring private hideaways with resort amenities. The 29 bright pink, yellow, and blue villas and three- to four-bedroom casas invite nature indoors with open-air living rooms and private plunge pools. Plush beds sit in white-walled rooms with highly polished wood floors and brightly colored Mexican textiles. Guests can get even closer to the action with wildlife preservation and bird-watching programs, or just relax on the more than ten miles of private beaches and at the earthy spa. At night, guests dine beside the ocean underneath lanterns hanging from La Higuera restaurant's fig tree, and find their way back to their villas with the aid of hundreds of candles.—Maribeth Mellin
