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.

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.
