Quiz Question: What is the topography of the Yucatán Peninsula?

The given options are as follows:

  • Grassland
  • Mountainous in the middle
  • Mostly flat with a few hills

The correct answer is: Mostly flat with a few hills

Fact: The peninsula is dry, but not desert, in part due to the vast reservoir of water beneath the surface exposed in cenotes like this one. Because cenotes were a vital source of fresh water to the Maya, they located many of their settlements near them.
