The cacique Careta, ruler of Coiba, was the Spaniards' guest for three days.
Nicuesa proceeded from Coiba to Uraba, the province of his ally Hojeda.
Both the country and its ruler bear the name of Coiba, as we have already stated is the case, at Careta.
The inhabitants of Coiba and some of the tribes on the western shore of the gulf of Urab, do not use bows and arrows.
Coiba or Quibo is a large island off the south coast of the isthmus, about 150 miles west of Panama.
As the country of Javana is the richest of all in gold, it is called Coiba Rica.
