The Fountain of Youth

Legend has it that explorer Juan Ponce de León learned from the Indians in the 1500's that Bimini was the site of the Fountain of Youth. According to Indian legend, the spring supposedly restored youth to older persons who bathed in or drank its waters. In 1513, Ponce de Leon set sail for Bimini from Puerto Rico with three ships. He found Bimini but failed to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. He then went on to discover the Gulf Stream and Florida instead.
