The first settlement,Caparra, was founded on August 8, 1508 byJuan Ponce de León, alieutenantunder Columbus, who was greeted by the Taino CaciqueAgüeybanáand who later became the firstgovernorof the island.Ponce de Leon was actively involved in the Higuey massacre in Puerto Rico. In 1508, Ponce de Leon was chosen by the Spanish Crown to lead the conquest and exploitation of the Tainos Indians for gold mining operations.The following year, the settlement was abandoned in favor of a nearby islet on the coast, named Puerto Rico (Rich Port), which had a suitable harbor. In 1511, a second settlement,San Germánwas established in the southwestern part of the island. According to the "500TH Florida Discovery Council Round Table", on March 3, 1513, Juan Ponce de León, organized and commenced an expedition (with a Crew of 200-including Women and Free Blacks) departing from "Punta Aguada" Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico was the historic 1st gateway to the discovery of Florida which opened the doors to the advanced settlement of the USA. They introduced Christianity, Cattle, Horses, Sheep, the Spanish language and more to the land (Florida) that later became the United States of America, 107 years before the Pilgrims landed.During the 1520s, the island took the name of Puerto Rico while the port becameSan Juan.
