Does anybody know the Spanish name for the Florida Everglades solution holes? Thank you.
They don't seem to have a specific name that I can find. The word for sink-hole in Spanish is "sumidero" but sink-holes intercept the water table and solution holes don't -according to the English Everglades wiki. There is a site in Spanish on the sumideros of Florida where they are referred to as being hondo or llano, pequeño or grande I presume that "pequeño sumidero llano" may be a possible translation of solution hole.

Separate names with a comma.
