Many of the town pages on Hot Costa are currently being updated to show the breakdown of the population in the town.

My local town of Cártama now shows that over 7% of the population are non-Spanish EU nationals. I can also see that there are 861 Brits, the highest number, and following up, 300 Romanians, with all the other nationalities a long way behind.

This is very useful information if you are planning to open some kind of nationality based business. Recently, a Dutch bar opened in a nearby town where there were 150 Dutch people. Doesn’t sound like the best place for a Dutch bar, but at least, if you have the information in front of you, you will know that you are going to have to get people from out of town, or visitors, as your core client base.

    We used to live in Benijofar, about 30 kms from Alicante. Most bars were owned by Brits, but one particular business did a roaring trade – a Dutch butchers.

    The butchers shop had a great reputation for quality meats and other products. Apart from the local Dutch residents using it, a lot of other nationalities did too.
