Clipperton Island, also known as Passion Island or “Ile de la Passion”, got its name from the well-known pirate John Clipperton, who took refuge there in the 18th century. This island stands out as one of the most picturesque in this region of the continent, despite being easily ignored by passing ships. When marauders pursued Clipperton, there was no chance that he was hiding in this location.

Due to its isolation and the fact that it is the only coral island in the Eastern Pacific, this region has developed a rare assemblage of Panamic and Indo-Pacific flora. The wide areas of delicious fauna are home to thousands of seabirds, who also steal from them. Travelers who wish to get lost in a maze of coconut trees and lengthy expanses of pristine white sand beaches should visit Clipperton.

The steps to be taken

The following is the process required:

If you’re in the tourism industry pick a niche to focus on

When it comes to starting a tourism-related business, you have a number of options to consider:

Service for moving people

Transportation of tourists to and from the tourist destination is also a part of this industry.

Travel companies

Travel agencies serve as a one-stop shop for all aspects of traveling, including lodging, meals, and activities.

Tourist guide 

Typically, a tour operator mixes tour and travel elements to create a vacation. They create a schedule.

Tourism management organization

 A DMC specializes in the planning and execution of events, activities, tours, transportation, and program logistics, and has substantial local knowledge, skills, and resources.


Hotels, guesthouses, bed & breakfasts, hostels, rental homes, lodges, and any other accommodations that travelers might utilize are included in this category.


Any restaurant or bar that tourists may frequent is considered a hospitality business.

Consider your geographical location.

Local tourist attractions might provide you a solid idea of what would and wouldn’t create a profitable tourism business. For instance, guided winery tours, local bed and breakfasts, and airport transportation services are all potential business possibilities if your area is far from the populous and abundant with wineries.

Evaluate the opposition

Before deciding which tourism-related business is best for you, do extensive study on the local tourism industry. You should pick a less-crowded area of the tourism industry where you may make a special contribution.
