"The Aztecs and Mayans vie for domination of Central America with invaders from across the sea."—Map description
As approximately half of the map is covered with water, Central America is a map with naval focus. All players start on the mainland, however. There are quite a lot of islands, holding valuable resources such as Gold and Stone Mines and Relics.
The western (northern in reality) part of the map has typical vegetation for temperate climate, with dirty terrain, broadleaf and pine forests. The eastern (southern) part of the map has more tropical vegetation with palm jungles and grassy terrain. The wildlife on the map consists of Deer, Javelina, Jaguars, and Turkeys. Naturally, there is fish in the water, especially in the eastern part of the map.
