13-killed-in-caribbeanCARIBBEAN360 – Thirteen women drowned on Saturday when a tourist ferry capsized in rough seas just off the coast of south-eastern Nicaragua.

A pair of British newlyweds, along with two American tourists, three Nicaraguans and 12 Costa Ricans, were rescued from the sunken boat.

All 13 women who lost their lives when a giant wave sank the vessel were vacationing Costa Rican nationals.

The Reina del Caribe (Caribbean Queen) got into difficulty in high winds, rain and “mountainous seas” while travelling between the Corn Islands, a popular tourist area.

Local authorities had reportedly suspended boat launches in the area due to high wind speeds that reached 25 to 30 knots (29 to 35 mph) after several days of stormy weather.
