Upon leaving Guanahaní, Columbus determined to search for gold and planned his route accordingly. [T]hose whom I captured on the Island of San Salvador told me that there they wore The Four Voyages of Columbus very big bracelets of gold on their legs and arms. I well believed that all they said was humbug in order to escape. However, it was my wish to bypass no island without taking possession. Despite having kidnapped his Taino guides, relations between Columbus’s expedition and the people of each Bahamian island he visited were peaceful and friendly.

The sailors were happy to celebrate with their Indian hosts, who threw elaborate feasts for all to enjoy. Near the present-day northern Haitian city of Cap Haitien, Columbus received an invitation to visit a cacique, or tribal leader, named Guacanagarí. Columbus mistook the name of Guacanagarí’s chiefdom, Cibao, for Marco Polo’s name for Japan, Cipangu. Certain that he had at last reached his goal, Columbus ordered the Santa Maria and the Niña to sail along the coast to meet Guacanagarí. On Christmas 1492, disaster struck.

This time he had the benefit of Arawak interpreters.
