Santo Domingo Map

This map by Baptista Boazio shows the 1586 expedition against Philip's Caribbean possessions and the attack on Santo Domingo. If you look closely you can see that the plan was for Drake to keep the main fleet close to the port, whilst dropping a landing party at the Boca de Hayna in the bottom left of the map.
