This island holds numerous tourist resources at universal level, with the condition of “
exotic “, “ unique “, “ historical “, “ prestigious “ and “ cosmic “.
These tourist resources are provided fundamentally by each one of the other islands and
must be operated, administered and equipped by the Tourist Island.
The archaeological island will provide a certain selected number of restorations, without
