Looking for an inexpensive honeymoon somewhere tropical?

Looking for someplace inexpensive, tropical, and friendly. I can kind of understand Spanish, but a mainly English speaking place would be nice. He's into history and I'm into snorkeling or horseback riding, or exploring jungles.

I would check into either Roatan, Honduras, or Samana, Dominican Republic. Roatan is a snorkeling/scuba diving paradise. You could do a side trip before/after to Copan Ruinas to satisfy the history buff. Samana is a peninsula in the northeast corner of the DR. Great, great beaches and side trips to waterfalls (Limon Falls) in the jungles... Not much history I'm afraid.

For more on-the-beaten-path stuff, you could try the Riviera Maya. If you stay in a place like Akumal or Tulum, prices are cheaper than the mega all-inclusives north of Playa del Carmen. There's a lot of snorkeling and jungle trips in the area, and you can swim in cenotes (freshwater pools in the limestone). Your husband will like the ruins at Tulum and Coba. G'luck.

Hi Chelsea! 1st congrats on the upcoming wedding! The hubby and I were on our honeymoon exactly a year ago this week and we did a cruise. I would certainly recommend it! One room but visit 2-4 destinations! The ships are fabulous, the food is wonderful, and there is entertainment and things to do while out to sea and you can book on-shore excursions through the ship or private vendors if you have time to do research. If you go this route, definitely do some research on the culture of the ship. Carnival (& of course Disney) are family oriented so kids running everywhere... We did Celebrity which was an older demographic but it worked out well because it gave us more time to just spend together. I've heard decent things about Royal Caribbean too. There are also smaller, more private cruise options too. (opt for the drink packages as well, it'll be worth it!)
Other options are Barbados, all-inclusive resorts in Dominican Republic or Mexico’s Riviera Maya (b/c lots of hotels there the prices can be cheaper). Wherever you go, this will be the best vacation of your life, so don't plan too too much and just relax and enjoy it all :)
