The Spanish considered region of the Caribbean Islands, from the Isthmus of Panama to the mouth of the Orinoco River, as their own treasure house. Enormous wealth was from the New World to their homeland. For this Buccaneers harassed Spanish ships and ports in the Caribbean Sea during 17th century. That region is also known as the Spanish Main. To Spain, they were just the ordinary pirates, but for their nations the buccaneers were a lot more than that. Around the beginning of the 17th century, people from around the world started trying to settle in the Caribbean too. The problem was that the Spanish didnt recognize their right to settle. The only people willing to trade with these settlers and adventurers were social outcasts. These people sold supplies like water and meat to the non-Spaniards, who started calling them Boucaniers. These individuals were more than mere Pirates. They were small well organized armies that stood against the Spanish.
