Isla Providencia
Isla Providencia is a mountainous Caribbean island that is part of Colombia. In 1629, Puritans from England established a colony on the island, and many of the colonists were forced to turn to privateering to make money for themselves. Spain conquered the island in 1641 during the Eighty Years' War, but the privateer Henry Morgan would later use the island as a base for his operations against Spain during the Golden Age of Piracy in the late 17th century. The island would later become a part of Colombia, although the majority of its population of 5,011 people (2017) felt more Caribbean than Colombian, and most of them spoke English or an English-based creole language.
