The Capture of the El Mosquito refers to the defeat of Roberto Cofres and his pirate ship off the port town of Boca Del Infierno, Puerto Rico by American and Spanish forces in March of 1825. United States Navy ships of the West Indies Squadron, with help from the Spanish Military, heavily damaged Cofresi's vessel and forced him to abandon her and escape to shore where he was later captured by Puerto Rican authorities and executed.
