Bluefields is the capital of the South Caribbean Autonomous Region (RACS) in Nicaragua. It was also the capital of the former Zelaya Department, which was divided into North and South Caribbean Coast Autonomous Regions. It is located on Bluefields Bay at the mouth of the Escondido River in the municipality of the same name.
Bluefields was named after the Dutch pirate Abraham Blauvelt who hid in the bay’s waters in the early 17th century. It has a population of 87,000 (2005) and its inhabitants are mostly Mestizo, Afro-descendant Creoles, and indigenousMiskitu, along with smaller communities of Garifuna, whites, Chinese, Mayangnas, Ulwas, and Ramas.
About Pearl Lagoon:
About a century ago it was considered to be the second capital of the Miskito Kingdom when the last Miskito king took up residence in the city. He arrived there after Henry Clarence deposed him in Bluefields in 1894.
At that time, Pearl Lagoon was called "the Granada of the Mosquitia" by one of the conquistadores of the Pacific Coast (the Caribbean side was not a part of Nicaragua) because of its beauty and the booming ship traffic. An 18th century cannon situated in the main street of the city has an inscription commemorating battles between liberal and conservative factions.
The main communities are Haulover, Kakabila, Marshall Point, Pearl Lagoon, Orinoco, La Fe, Raitipura, Brown Bank,Tasbapounie, Set Net, Wawashan, San Vicente, Awas and Pedregal.
About The Pearl Cays:
(Spanish: Cayos de Perlas) is a group of 18 cays located about 35 kilometers from Laguna de Perlas off the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua. They are part of the RAAS autonomous region. The Pearl Cays are covered with vegetation and are lined with white sand beaches. They are an important nesting site for turtles, including the endangered Hawksbill turtle.
