I'm looking into booking a stay at a private cottage ("Pleasant Dreams" on Pleasant Harbor, Northern side of the island - if you know it, any feedback would e much appreciated) in April. My sister gave me the "don't go anywhere outside a resort, you'll get robbed" routine, but I don't see anything like that in the reviews I've read. Are we likely to get robbed cycling to the local market for food? Do we need to excercise a certain amount of paranoia, or are we OK with simple courtesy?
Family vacation, WAY low-key, simple swimming, snorkeling, hiking etc. is all we desire.
