What matters to me:

- Offer variety in content, to disperse the flow of visitors in the archipelago according to their deep centers of interest and lighten the load on the major tourist centers.

- Use as many local services as possible, and pay each participant their fair value.
- Actively participate in preserving heritage for future generations.

- Take care to respect the natural and urban environment to share warm and unique moments with residents and allow them to live peacefully with tourism.
