An approximate 30 foot sinkhole was discovered this morning just south of Ak'bol Yoga Retreat on an empty lot. Discovered by Don David Pena, gardener for the resort, he saw it when he showed up for work this morning at 7:00 a.m. It is strongly believed that this was caused due to the earthquake which stemmed off the coast of La Ceiba, Honduras.

I'm soooooooo glad my house was not on top of that sinkhole.
It's quite near my place.

Wow, We drove right by that area twice yesterday and never noticed anything.

Is the hole closer to the water or the road?

Wow very cool but seriously guys this is Tres Cococ not north of Ambergris Caye like the title says.
Lets start anew and name this new lagoon 'South Ambergris Lagoon'.

We just checked it out (After a great breakfast @ Akbol grin ) Really cool hole. I think the new name should be the "Tres Coco Norte Natural Pool Area" (It's almost in the Buena Vista Area)

We can expect more, given the geology of AC and CC.

Maybe this was an underground cenote that just collapsed
