Columbus founded the first colony in the New World on Hispaniola Island, and discovered Jamaica in 1494. </li></ul><ul><li>On a third voyage in 1498 he discovered Trinidad, and coasted along theshores of South America from the Orinoco River to the island of Margarita. </li></ul>www.thegreatcaribbeantreasurehunt.com
