I am certain that in most destinations along the Algarve, Spanish Costas, Croatia, Greece, from time to time, cockroaches will appear.

Lagos Council are pretty much up on keeping sanitary systems clean & functioning.

However, if private owners don't maintain their systems & keep them clean 'roaches can appear! They like comfort as well.

Friends of ours rented a very nice apartment in Lagos marina a couple of years ago. I got a panic call 'cos one 'roach decided to appear & HE couldn't deal with it.

In warmer climes, despite best efforts, 'roaches will appear from time to time.

I haven't heard of any roach infestations in Luz this year, apart from the tourist hordes.
