I just wanted to write what a great place the Canary Islands seems to be for those who hate mosquitoes and wasps. I’ve only visited Lanzarote and Tenerife, but there didn’t seem to be any of either of these evil insects on the island. That means we were able to sit outside and have lunch and dinner without being bothered, stung or bitten.

However, we did find large cockroaches there :(. So I guess it depends which bugs cause you the most worry.

Link to Canary Islands on Wikipedia. Link to the Barceló Lanzarote Resort hotel where we stayed in Lanzarote. Link to the Barceló Santiago hotel where we stayed in Tenerife.

If you have visited any of the other Canary Islands; Fuertenventura, Gran Canaria etc then please add a comment to describe what bugs you encountered there.
