Many sinkholes like this in Belize but this one could be the sink hole near El Pilar in Cayo and I know they used to offer rapelling into that one.

How interesting! We've been to El Pilar but never heard of or saw any sinkhole.

This sinkhole looks like it is in the Guyana Highlands of South America.

Looks like Nohoch Chen possibly. There are a lot of sinkholes in Belize. Arial of Nohoch Chen

I have done more research and located this sinkhole. It is one of the Sarisarinama Sinkholes and is located in the far southwest of Bolivar State in Venezuela, South America. Belize does not have karsted limestone on the mainland which are this thick. (the cliff walls are almost 300m high!)

Search "Sarisarinama sinkhole" for more images.
