Is it better to know several languages more or less, a couple of languages well, or one language (almost) perfectly?

I think language learning is an important thing for society to do, but it seems to be that really bilingual people often sacrifice some of the nuances of both languages they speak in favour of broad communication in both languages. As someone who now speaks Spanish to an upper-intermediate level I am constantly frustrated by the subtleties of Spanish humour. Is that something you can only really appreciate if you are born purely with that language or is it possible to learn to appreciate such nuances over time?
