Columbus conducted four transatlantic expeditions, the first in 1492–93, the second in 1493–96, the third in 1498–1500, and the fourth in 1502–04. The majority of his travels took him to the Caribbean islands of the Bahamas, Cuba, Santo Domingo, and Jamaica, with the exception of his last two excursions, which took him to the shores of eastern Central America and northern South America.
Where did Christopher Columbus go on his first voyage?
His second expedition carried him through much of the southeast Caribbean, and his third voyage touched Venezuela. His final expedition took him to the coast of Central America, where he explored most of the country. Christopher Columbus discovered the first land in the New World on an island somewhere in the Bahamas that he named San Salvador, which is now known as the Bahamas.
