@SweetHoneyBee:  I’d recommend a travel agent. Many have 100 numbers and will give you free advice. It’s great to book online but travel agents are at no cost to you so sometimes it makes sense to use their expertise and let them do the research. 

A $5,000 budget can get you many different all inclusive options in the caribbean depending on how picky you are with accommodations. I’ve done Cuba and Dominican for $3,500 but I can’t think of anywhere else that is in that range.

Thailand  could be perfect for you. There are gorgeous beaches, lots of activities, great, clean hotels, but still the atmosphere of being somewhere not home. Flights there may be expensive, also hotels (depending of course how luxurious hotel you want), but once you get there food will be really cheap and delicious.

We stayed in Koh Chang island, and I can recommend it. It wasn’t too touristy, but there were still lots of activities like kayaking, jungle trekking, biking, snorkelling, etc.

@SweetHoneyBee:  We did St. Lucia…we loved it! We soent a few days lounging on the resort and a few days doing excursions and seeing all the island had to offer.  Went on a jungle tour and hiked through a jungle to a beautiful waterfall where we got to climb and swim, took a boat tour complete with snorkeling, a volcano mud bath, another waterfall swim and a delicious local lunch. Imhighly recommend there, time of our lives!

@SweetHoneyBee:  Try the Henderson Park Inn in Destin FL. My husband and I are going there in April for our honeymoon/anniversary. It’s a B&B on the beach and they have all the activities you described. Our budget is around $1500-$1800 for everything (we are driving since we are only a few hours away). Check out the rave reviews on tripadvisor. Best part… absolutely secluded and there are no kids allowed! I mean besides the free breakfast lunch and snacks provided.. Your room awaiting you with wine, grapes, chocolate and a rose..
