cockroaches ......aaargh

Hi first time to cyprus, we normally go to canaries and you get quite a lot of cockroaches in all of these islands. Is there many in Protarus..or any even better any at all. cheers

You do get them but very rarely do you see many.My only holiday to the Canaries,and probably my last,is memorable mostly for the sound of cockroaches scurrying across the floor of the apartment in the dark.Fortunately that's never happened in 10 years or so of holidaying in Cyprus.

The canaries have got to be the worst place for cockroaches and although you do get them in Cyprus, you certainly don't see them as much.

In the whole of last summer I think we had 3 in the house, and I live in quite a rural area. we had several on the balcony but still not what you'd call a lot. In hotels especially the chance of seeing them is very rare. If you are in older apartments which have open entrances and not "corridors", and a lot of greenery around you may see a few more, but I wouldn't worry about them as you mind find you don't see a single one.

In twenty odd years going to Cyprus several times a year, have never seen one. Apart from once in England years ago in a self catering cabin the only time I have seen a cockroach on holiday was in a hotel in Kefalonia.
