Mission Notes

This is a swashbuckling mission on a jungle map. At first, you will need to run into the jungle for a short way. At some point you will get a system message about a commotion on the beach. Return there to find some Mayan warriors threatening your party. Talk to the Mayans. Eventually they will turn hostile (they're all level 10). Defeat them (your crew will help you) to finish the mission.

It does not seem to be possible to avoid the fight through choosing the correct conversation options. In the end, it all comes down to "we're leaving, but not without my men" as the best possible scenario, at which point they will attack you.

Note: it IS necessary to avoid the fight with the Mayans as much as possible. Otherwise this mission appears bugged. You have to kill more Mayans than there are. Talk some of them out of the fight and you can complete it.
