Mapping the Maya

The Maya lived in an area called Mesoamerica. This is an area that is defined by culture (art, buildings, sports and beliefs), not borders. The ancient Maya lived in a region that today includes Guatemala, Belize, Mexico, Honduras and El Salvador. The land was varied and included coastal plains, volcanic highlands and rainforests.
