We are looking to take a babymoon in April and I’m looking for suggestions within the following criteria:
1. 2-3 hour flight max from BWI or DC. I’ll be 25 weeks, so flying isn’t a problem. I just want a short, easy, non-stop flight.
2. Warm and beachy in April! Snorkeling for my husband is a must. I envision myself sitting in a hammock or cabana sipping a mocktail.
3. We want to be somewhat active. A location where we could spend a day or 2 visiting a downtown area, a historical sight, or do an excursion would be excellent.
4. Around $3k budget for the week. We are open to all inclusive or not, but I really want a relaxing resort feel.
Please let me know your recommendations for destinations or resorts that might fit my needs. Thanks!

Punta cana, Jamacia or any of the Caribbean islands are nice. Plenty of all-inclusive that will fit your budget. When we went to Punta Cana we stayed at NH Royal Beach, its an adult-only all inclusive, but it also connects to its sister resort that you’ll have access to.
I would also suggest Bermuda, its an absolutely beautiful country! I know flights there can be cheap but hotels and food can get very pricey there so it might not fit into your budget.

BWI has nonstop flights to Cancun that are about 3 hours. For about $400 round trip through Air Tran (depending on when you travel but it seems to be the standard rate). Don’t know if that intests you but I figured I’d tell you since I just booked those tickets for a family vacation trip to Cancun.

I just LOVE the idea of a babymoon!! Congratulations, what a joy!
Have you thought about Puerto Rico? Flights and accomodations can be made very reasonably. There is a lot to do and see that fits your criteria- taking in the lovely and historic sights in Old San Juan, fruity drinks (everywhere!), snorkeling for your hubs (you can take a day trip on a catamaran), even a rainforest!
We went to Aruba recently which was nice but I believe PR would be a better deal!
