Mexico - January 15th, 2011

Sediments spill from several large lagoons separated from the Pacific Ocean by spits of land along the southern shores of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, in Mexico.

The area is part of the aponymous region called Istmo de Tehuantepec, the largest region in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. The region contains the largest part of the Selva Zoque, or Zoque Forest, an area of great ecological importance including the largest intact tropical rain forest in Mexico.
