Is Central America a part of North America....? I thought they were two separate things.
Sergio, indeed (by most definitions) they are separate regions, although depending on where you come from what counts as being included in "Central America" might vary. I think that the opening sentences, which I gather have prompted your question, are trying to say that the Isthmus of Tehuantepec is what separates the two, not the peninsula itself. By that definition, Yucatan pen. would be placed in Central America, since it lies to the immediate south of this peninsula.
By another measure (continentally-speaking), Central America could be regarded as a region of Nth America (Central Am. is never defined as a continent).
Certainly, the Yucatan is universally regarded as part of Mesoamerica, which however is more of a cultural region as much as anything, and is generally not the same thing as Central America, which would include a lot of Mesoamerica but also lands further south to the Panamanian region.--cjllw | TALK 09:28, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the note. The article looks better now.
The statement "The Yucatán Peninsula roughly coincides with the zone of influence of the Pre-Columbian Maya civilization" was patently false.
However, it would be generally accurate to say that the Yucatan Peninsula roughly coincides with the "Maya lowlands" (the Maya highlands are part of the Sierra Madres as they merge through the isthmus to join with Central America).Chunchucmil 14:30, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

This section says the Yucatan extends to northern Guatemala, whereas the infobox's map resricts it only a little past the modern state of Yucatan. Are there any sources that confirm either of these ranges? --TangoFett (talk) 19:18, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
Which one of these is the correct size of the Yucatán Peninsula?
I'm going to go with the Encyclopedia of World Geography since it should probably be the most reliable source - a tertiary reference specifically about geography. Plus it happens to fall about in the middle of the various estimates (and it's the same as the size we're already using, albeit from an inferior source). Kaldari (talk) 06:44, 7 August 2018 (UTC)
