Where are you from? How about a trip to California – napa, san francisco, carmel?

What about an all-inclusive resort?  They tend to have activities for you to do in addition to being warm and sunny.

Where are you?  If you are on the west coast, I’d suggest going to New Zealand – Depending on when exactly you want to go, it will be springtime there, and there are TONS of activities to do (mountain climbing, bungee jumpying, surfing, kayaking, whale-watching, penguin watching…).  However, getting there can cost big $$ – but you can usually find <$1000 tickets from the west coast.

What about Costa Rica or Belize? Pretty beaches, but lots of activities to do.

I also second Costa Rica – my friend went and there are alot of different activities you can do; I think it would be great for an active couple.

I’m a biased Bee since my wedding will be held here, but Dominican Republic (Punta Cana) is beautiful! We willl be travelling to the Majestic Elegance Resort and it is gorgeous! There are lots of excursions you can do if you arent beach people – zip lining, dune buggy, catamaran to an island, etc. And if you would rather explore on your own it is a very safe destination to do so!

Hawaii does not have any all-inclusive resorts, unfortunately. 

I will second the PPs who suggested Costa Rica, Belize, or Dominican Republic.  All sound like good matches for your budget and interests.  I had an archaeology professor in college who lives half the year in Belize.  How he returns to the states every year is beyond me…Belize is GORGEOUS.

I second Costa Rica or Panama.  Costa Rica has everything from beaches to rainforest.  Some friends of ours did a weeklong camping/hiking trip through Peru and really enjoyed it.  Plus, it was just them and the guides.

You should really look into sites like groupon, living social, hautelook, bloomspot, etc – they all have travel deals, they all have really cool deals on cruises and all inclusives, etc.  You can always do excursions anywhere you go.  You can consider Jamaica, as well.  Sunny and hot, beaches and pools, lots to do, etc.

DH and I did 7 nights in Belize for $4500. We aren’t the type to lay on the beach, so we chose a place where we could explore Mayan ruins, hike, canoe, zipline, go caving, etc. We had a lot of fun! I’ve heard great things about Costa Rica and Nicaragua as well.

I highly recommend St John in the UVSI. So much to do on the island and the people there are so friendly. I didn’t want to leave!

What about Thailand?  The flights are expensive, but once you are there it is quite cheap.

Tahiti, Bora-Bora, Fiji, Cook Islands, anywhere in the South Pacific? I frequently see travel del as for those locales that are all-inclusive resortsnwith the overwater huts. They look amazing!
