Short summary
We use a geomorphic approach in order to unravel the recent tectonic evolution of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas and Maya Mountains (northern Central America). Our results highlight elevated relict landscapes that are characterized by a low-amplitude relief. The distribution of these landscapes results from a tectonic control. We combine our results with published GPS and seismotectonic data in order to extend existing geodynamic models of the North American–Caribbean–Cocos plate boundary.
