    A hamstring gave me time and so i could finally do this project i have planned for some time. I have to say thanks especially to skullz for the map and drazicdesign for the firenze pack.

    Away from the stress and bustling life of the countrys' metropolises, at the easternmost tip of Azuls' mainland (San Fernando peninsula), there is Porto Nuevo. The former spanish colonial city was a small port city at an important strategical location. But the growth of the town occured in the late 18th century, after the buccaneers age and golden years of spanish glory in its colonies.

    The town is special in its administration. It is not a single city, it's an official municipality merger, initially founded 1967 for more efficient actions in tourism issues. See the map below:

    [​IMG]
    Population of:
    Porto Nuevo: 17,298
    Malcasir: 13,562
    Scalapata: 7,132
    Pueblo Cristo: 4,856
    Olcasua del Mar: 4,027

    Parcoril: 1,308
    San Sebastian: 1,268
    Conseco: 976
    Santa Isabel: 353

    Porto Nuevo is a popular touristic destination, tourism is the main source of income for the citys' budget. Hence the town council promoted that particular industry and decided on advantageous regulations. The sector has been modernized, nevertheless it was always important to keep the UNESCO title of world heritage, so newer projects extra had to be approved first to not threaten it.

    Furthermore Porto Nuevo is (a) host city of the sailing games of ISAF, the national golfchampionsships, the "Tour Azul" (famous bicycle race), an annual marathon, an annual, popular triathlon, the Porto Nuevo Beach Rockfestival, the Island Musicparty and other numerous outdoor events for sports and culture.

    The old trade route in Pueblo Cristo was important for merchants from the domestic market and abroad. Today the road still takes almost the same course, but has lost importance of course. It is the thoroughfare of the town.

    I don't even know where to start... this is just awesome!

    You've become a real expert in creating holiday resorts and other fun and leisure facilities. I really love the hotels, the marinas, and the beaches! They all have a different feel, from big all-inclusive places to small and quiet hideouts... then this lake with its campground is just amazing! And a great idea with that flight school (y)

    The airport is great, too... not too big for a small island like this and big enough to get all the tourists ^^ and of course, the towns and many small villages are really neat! Very well done!!

    This city newspaper is a true success.
    I like the way you worked the villages,
    It smells good small Italian country roads!

    I'm glad to see the use of Firenze pack that way.
