The collapse of that island happened by the eruption of a volcano. According to the scientist’s theory, 15,000 years ago the Yucatan peninsula and Cuba were united by a land bridge in the form of a mountain range. Paulina Zelitsky and her collaborators discovered that this same mountain range still exists now, but under the sea.
Eruptions at Santamaría are estimated to have begun about 30,000 years ago. For several thousand years, eruptions seem to have been small and frequent, building up the large cone of the volcano, reaching about 1,400 m above the plain on which the nearby city of Quetzaltenango sits
Kick-'em-Jenny is an active submarine volcano on the Caribbean sea floor 8 km north of the island of Grenada and about 8 km west of Ronde Island in the Grenadines at Latitude: 12.300°N. Longitude: 61.640°W. Kick-'em-Jenny rises 1,300 meters (4,300 feet) above the sea floor on the steep inner western slope of the Lesser Antilles ridge. The North American tectonic plate is subducting the Caribbean tectonic plate to the east of this ridge and under the Lesser Antilles island arc.
The eastern boundary is a subduction zone, but since the boundary between the North and South American Plates in the Atlantic is as yet undefined, it is unclear which one, or possibly both, is descending under the Caribbean Plate. Subduction forms the volcanic islands of the Lesser Antilles island arc from the Virgin Islands in the north to the islands off the coast of Venezuela in the south. This boundary contains seventeen active volcanoes, most notably Soufriere Hills on Montserrat, Mount Pelée on Martinique, La Grande Soufrière on Guadeloupe, Soufrière Saint Vincent on Saint Vincent, and the submarine volcano Kick-'em-Jenny which lies about 10 km north of Grenada.
First, a volcano exists:
Take note of the three ripples in both pictures. They have to represent the same thing.

These two images are clearly identified as Mesoamerican art. The question of the matter is, are they original works of the Native people of Central America?
No one has ever discovered the underground ruins that Teobert Maler found.
Anyone ready for an expedition?
The pyramid in the frieze matches the design of the Castillo pyramid located at Chichen Itza.
The Mesoamerican warrior in the boat resembles the Toltec worriors of Tula.
Author, Peter Tompkins displayed this photo in his work entitled, “Mysteries of the Mexican pyramids.” Peter Tompkins didn’t directly identify the source of the painting in the section where he displayed it, so it’s hard to research the original source.
The painting is very interesting because the warriors are oblivious to the monster tsunamis crashing into the temples.
Anybody got any details where he was supposed to have been?
He settled in Yucatán with small house in the town of Ticul, where he set up a photographic studio and learned the Maya language. However he spent most of his time in the forests, accompanied by a few Maya to help clear the jungle from the ruins and carry Maler's photographic equipment. He started off visiting major sites already well-known, such as Chichen Itza and Uxmal, but zealously followed all leads and became the first to document many new ruins. At Chichen, he lived in the ruins for 3 months, and documented the site much more fully than had earlier visitors.
Over the next years Maler also made investigations of many remote sites in the el Petén region of Guatemala and along the course of the Usumacinta River.
