Thanks everyone for the info and advice!
Our kids are 12 and 13, and they usually just do whatever we do when on vacation. We don't do the bar scene much anymore, but do like to enjoy the local food and meeting the people when we can. For example, in St Martin, we loved to walk down the beach at night and visit the local's lowlow huts(sp?) for dinner, where they would grill some delicious freshly caught lobsters, with native spices, and a homebrewed liquor they called "tea". We'd sit on the beach eat and drink for relatively little money... and make some new friends while doing so.
On Anguilla, we met the family who owned/worked the restaurant, and I even got to help "grandma" cook our dinner to learn how they did it.
While driving up the east coast of Australia, we got lost and ended up eating breakfast in the kitchen of a total stranger who invited us inside for some coffee one morning, after I couldn't find a place to buy take-away coffees. All she wanted in return was to hear all about Texas.
I am guessing that AC and San Pedro is another place where we can enjoy this type of adventure in safety? Is that the case?
Are there any safety concerns about being so remote in the Casa Redondo area?
Thanks again for all your help!
