    There may be many Germans here on holiday, but Morro Jable is definitely Spanish at heart! Most residents here are Spanish speaking, with a smattering of European ex-pats thrown in. However, it is certainly has a more Spanish / Canarian feel than say Corralejo or Caleta…..
    If you are seeking lots of ex-pat Brits then this isn’t the best choice.
