an island in the Carribbean sea, the bahamas.

_________

Actually, to be more precise, his first landing was Guanahani in the bahamas.

Then his next stop in Dominican Republic/ Haiti.

Where did he settle first in the United States? Florida? Georgia? Alabama?

Puerto Rico is a territory, not actual state.
