Club del comercio

 

The large living Puerto Plata trade, made it ideal for pirate attacks, pirates under the protection of the enemies of Spain, which caused the citizens of Puerto Plata, to be tired of harassment from pirates, chose to market to them before risking their lives and their goods.

This provoked a strong anger by the kings of Spain, in 1605 ordering the evacuation of Puerto Plata and its surroundings to prevent settlers from trading with the enemy.
