I took my college students for an eco-tourism field trip last Fall and was very impressed by the Earthshine's amazing facilities, courteous staffs, and delicious foods. If you are looking for a family vacation destination and want to give your kids an educational exposure (e.g., knowing history of native people, understanding/appreciating nature, leadership development, team work etc.) this is the place to go.
