If you’re looking for a place that better suits an active lifestyle, check out costa rica. They have all the things you described (plus rainforests!) and are great for outdoorsy types. Jamacia is more of a “relax on the beach and drink a pina colada” kind of vacation.

@Honeysuckle Love:  idk why she thinks mexico is scary; as long as you go to an all inclusive and are on a resort, it’s fine.

jamaica is also scary if you leave the resort, so…idk.

we went to jamaica last month & it was really nice, but we didn’t stay at an all inclusive place so i don’t really have recommendations there.  We also went to Punta Cana a few years ago and stayed at the majestic elegance, which was awesome

How much is your budget? If you google honeymoons under 2k it comes up with a good list! Some of our friends stayed at Sandals La Toc in St. Lucia and loved it! It’s one of the all inclusives under 2k. We have been to St. Lucia and loved it!

@HisWifey:  My fiance thought about staying at a Sandals in St. Lucia but it was like almost 10K for what we wanted! What were your options at 2k?

we’re going to mexico, we go every year abd even venture out to the parks, etc. never had a problem. just depends on where you go i guess. we go to the same chain usually thruough cancun, cozumel and puerto vallarta and always get upgraded and the staff is so helpful and attentive. at $2500 all inclusive: air travel, food and  booze, it was hard for us to pass up. we’re adding a dinner cruise, a chitchenitza tour some snorkeling and wave runners or something to change it up… but yeah, it’s the biggest bang for your buck. I hear costa rica isnt too bad, but there might be bugs and they arent as accomodating bc everything is so spread out-but again, I think it depends on where you go.
