During the time that the members of the expedition toiled in the humid swamps (this Pizarro area called Puerto de la Ambre - Port Hunger), they were able to establish some contacts with the locals. They saw their gross gold ornaments and get acquainted with their vague stories, probably in sign language, of a powerful kingdom in the south, captured even more rich and powerful state. When returned to Montenegro, full stomachs and the proximity of a lot of gold contributed to raising the spirit of the expedition members. They boarded a ship and headed south again, ready to re-experience their own destiny. However, the situation was desperate. As before, there was no news from Almagro, and the people that went to Montenegro to the Pearl Islands for provisions, could not forget headwinds and storms, tested them on the path along the coast. Like most of the early explorers, Pizarro held offshore. He had to do it, because the coastline served as the only guide to further lying lands. We walked along the low coast and furnaces; almost constant rain fell, visibility was disgusting. Once he landed on the shore, came upon a recently abandoned village; They found some food, mainly maize, and some coarse gold jewelry. But other than that they found there are clear signs of cannibalism. Again, to the south, in the midst of a fierce storm. Finally rounded Cape and anchored at the shore covered with mangroves; ship by this time quite badly damaged. Here stood a large Indian village, but it also turned out to be abandoned; and here they found food and even a certain amount of the same primitive gold jewelry. Montenegro has gone deep into the mainland, but was attacked in the foothills of the Cordillera . The fight was fierce; Pizarro, who came to his aid, cut off from his comrades and paid to him as the leader of emphasis - he received no less than seven slightly injured. In this short battle the Spaniards lost five men killed, seventeen people were injured.
