Tropico Wiki

The Smuggler's Cove is a unique Infrastructure building in Tropico 2 that provides a way to sell excess goods outside the island. In order for it to function, you must open it to a nation; doing so will cause the nation to discover the location of your island. You also need at least one Skilled Trader in order to build this structure, though unskilled male captives can work there.
