They don't know what they are missing! There is nothing like a delicious gazpacho on a hot summer's day in Spain! How can one pass up the chance to splurge on all kinds of delicious seafoods which are almost unaffordable at home? Or pigging out (no pun intended) on jamón ibérico or pata negra? The only thing I will never get used to is the daily eating schedule in Spain... having breakfast in the morning and not eating after 8 o'clock in the evening is too deeply ingrained.
Hello Edit
that is not really true. There are a lot of nice beach villages in Spain nearly without foreigners but with Spanish tourists. If you go there in June or September you can enjoy empty beaches in combination with quite origninal Spanish culture.
