More information about Final Jeopardy:
In 1513, Vasco Núñez de Balboa became the first European to lead an expedition to have reached the Pacific Ocean from the New World. After founding the settlement of Santa María la Antigua del Darién in 1510 on the Caribbean Sea side of Panama, Balboa led the expedition across the Isthmus of Panama to first sight the Pacific Ocean (then known as the South Sea).
Today, many parks and streets in Panama are named after Balboa, and even the country’s currency is the Panamanian balboa.
