Vasco Nunez De Balboa

In 1500, a Spanish explorer by the name of Vasco Nunez De Balboa set sail from Spain, arriving in Columbia, South America, several months later.





Balboa and his partner, Rodrigo De Bastidas, explored the coastline of South America in search of treasure. Eventually, however, their boat began to leak and they were forced to abandon it. This left Balboa without a boat, and without any money.

Vasco Nunez De Balboa

Balboa attempted to survive by farming the land. He eventually moved further west with a group of Spaniards and founded the first European colony in the New World known as Santa Maria de la Antigua del Darien. While living in this new village he married a Native, the daughter of a local tribal chief.

Balboa then led a large group made up of both Spaniards and Natives on an expedition across the Isthmus of Panama, where he became the first European to see the Eastern edge of the Pacific Ocean.
