On visiting Bluefields and the nearby Deer Island you learn that thousands of Americans wishing

to join the 1849 California Gold Rush left from the U.S. East Coast and sailed here; they then were shipped up the San Juan River to Lake Nicaragua and ferried across to it’s western shore; this was followed by a short ride down to the Pacific Coast, from where they sailed on up to San Francisco; thus saving a five-month, dangerous journey across the continental U.S.A. in a wagon train. ~ Island Card (visiting Island U-132 on the scorecard)
