The area that was most influenced by these Reductions was modern day Paraguay in the tribe of the Tupi-Guarani (as seen in the movie “The Mission”) and later spread further south to places like Argentina, Brazil, and Bolivia. The Reductions in South America were different from those elsewhere because while the native tribes were expected to convert to Christianity they were not required to adopt European customs and lifestyles. The Reductions ended up having a high degree of autonomy and became very economically successful. Reductions were subject to raids from slave traders and the Spanish helped form an Indian militia to protect the Reductions. The high autonomy level, economic success, and the danger from slave traders led to the expulsion of the Jesuits from Central and South America in 1767.

This paper focuses primarily on the English and French colonists experiences with Indians of the Northeastern United States. But the Spanish, who were the first to arrive at the New World, did spend time living with the Indians as well. One of the most important examples of a Spanish person who lived with the Indians was the discoverer of America, Amerigo Vespucci. Vespucci actually spent some time living and observing the Indian way of life (Washburn 6). He wanted to share in their lives so he shared their experiences, or as Gerbi world say, "he becomes a savage to understand the savages" (41).
I feel that the reason that Cuba does not get much tourism is because of the long and interesting history between itself and the US. Cuba was discovered in 1492 by Christopher Columbus. He claimed it for Spain and started the Spanish colony of Havana, Cuba’s current day capitol. This settlement was fairly stable and began to spread, but in the 1760s due to Spanish trade regulations, Cuba failed to prosper. Spain had started a trade monopoly in the Caribbean, and they wanted to protect this.
Christopher Columbus made his first European landing on his final voyage in 1502. Costa Rica became a settlement in 1522. The settlement turned to agriculture after finding little gold or other valuable minerals. Due to its isolation from the Spanish Colony in Mexico, Costa Rica developed an autonomous and individualistic agrarian society (globalEDGE, 2013). In the early 16th century, the Spanish made initial attempts to colonize Costa Rica, but this proved disastrous due to a number of factors such as, resistance by natives, disease infested swamps by mosquitos, pirate raids, and brutal heat.

Pineapples, bananas, and other tropical fruits flourish in the hot, moist climate and are sold in every marketplace. Puerto Rico is a wonderful island fill with much history, culture, tradition and different foods. (According to Winslow) “It is believed to be the only place in the United States where Christopher Columbus actually landed in 1493.” A monument of Columbus is place in Puerto Rico being the only place in the U.S where he set foot. In 1873 slavery was abolished. Spain once owned Puerto Rico, and in 1899 The Treaty of Paris was ratified on April 11, and Spain ceded Puerto Rico to the United States.
This was the case for Puerto Rico, which was just as much affected by colonialism as other areas, but has certain qualities which make the Puerto Rican identity unique. After conquering Puerto Rico in 1508 Juan Ponce de Leon looked for a labor supply which he could use to produce riches for Spain and himself. He attempted to force the native Tainos into hard labor and plantation life, but could keep them neither controlled or stationary. Many Tainos escaped enslavement or other forms of forced labor for two reasons (Figueroa, Sept. 24). First Tainos were historically a mobile culture, which roamed the land intentionally before the Spanish made it a necessity.
Spanish settlers were critical, upon arrival, of the Taino lifestyle. Unfortunately Taino influence is rarely felt due to their rapid demise. Although the natives of Borikén were Taino, it is argued that the first Puerto Ricans were black Puerto Ricans. Spanish occupation virtually eliminated Native influences by the way of the decimation of the people as a result of disease brought across the atlantic by the Spanish settlers. In this way the Taino were minimally influential in forming a new cultural identity.
