Fact of the Day
Bluefields, Nicaragua lies in a geographically and politically lucky area. Colombia's cocaine traffickers need to cruise through the waters between the Caribbean Islands and Central America in order to reach the payday that is the continental United States. The currents in these waters cause many things to wash up on Nicaragua's shores. When US coast guards pursue the drug boats, contraband is usually unloaded overboard as soon as possible. Luckily for Bluefields, the cocaine is wrapped water tight and is nice and buoyant. Nature does the rest of the work as bails of cocaine travel westward and wind up on a bunch of small surrounding islands as well as Nicaragua proper. Traffickers posing as local merchants by the cocaine back from Bluefields residents [source].
