Named after the ancient Maya Province of Kimpech, the state of Campeche comprises much of the western half of Mexicos Yucatan Peninsula. Rivers in southern Campeche drain into the immense Terminos Lagoon, the entrance to which is protected by a long barrier island, Isla Del Carmen (upper right). In this false-color satellite image the green jungle canopy shows up as bright red.
