Cancun, Mexico

February 22, 2004
Known for its beaches and resort hotels, Cancun lies at the tip of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Inland from this tourist mecca, however, lies a sparsely populated tropical scrub forest that shelters the ruins of ancient Mayan cities. This scene was acquired by the ASTER instrument on NASA’s Terra satellite on September 28, 2000.
