Jack Sparrow[src]

The Raid on Fort Alvo Grande was an attempt of Captain Jack Sparrow and his pirate crew to steal the treasure guarded by the Portuguese Army in Fort Alvo Grande in Panama.


"Jack, your name is synonymous with 'weasel'."
"Then how did I ever talk you into this?"
"That is a mystery indeed.
Will Turner and Jack Sparrow[src]

Following his escape from Port Royal Jack Sparrow returned to the life of piracy as the rightful captain of the Black Pearl.[2] Soon, he found out about the treasure that was hidden in the jungles of Panama. For some reason he decided to ask for help Will Turner, the young blacksmith who helped him escape from Port Royal. Needing money to care for his fiancée Elizabeth Swann, Turner reluctantly agreed to join Jack in another of his criminal ventures.[3]


"First we will unlock the main gate... then we lower the flag and replace it with a Jolly Roger. That's a signal to our rickett ridden crew, and they'd best be watching for it."
Jack Sparrow to Will Turner[src]

The Black Pearl sailed for Panama, where Jack Sparrow, Will Turner and three other pirates left the ship. Walking through a dense jungle, Jack and Will left the rest of the crew to hide in the swamp while they proceeded to the fort.[3]



"If this wasn't happening, I'd swear you're making it up."
"It's the life of a pirate, mate. Best get used to it.
