Geocache Description:


Can you find all the caches in THE SILVER TRAIN series? Find them all, and you're half way to finding X MARKS THE SPOT, a fine achievement for a budding buccaneer!

This series is based on a map of the Spanish Main in the Caribbean, with the caches being named after the main cities that pirates plundered on their travels! The location of the caches is intended to relate to the location of the cities on the map, so you are actually walking on the Spanish Main!

Rio de la Hacha

The Spanish discovered a vast amount of pearls in the city's area, which made the city a constant target for pirates. After the city was destroyed by a pirate raid, the city government relocated the city to the mouth of the Rancheria River, in order to confuse the pirates, and hopefully give the city time to rebuild before the next attack. The new city, named Nuestra Señora de los Remedios del Río de la Hacha (Our Lady of the Remedies of the Ax River), expanded peacefully for a short time in its new location, but pirate attacks soon resumed. The next major attack, led by the famous English pirate Francis Drake, took place in 1596, when Drake pillaged the city searching for gold and pearls.
