Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz: What is the topography of the Yucatán Peninsula?
B Mountainous in the middle
C Mostly flat with a few hills
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.
