Mangroves, mosquitoes and tropical rains gave the Ruta BBVA expedition a taste of pristine nature when it arrived in the coastal city of Celestun on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
With the theme of “Aventura en las selvas mayas de Yucatan” (“Adventure in Yucatan’s Mayan Jungles”), the 31st Ruta BBVA’s 180 participants from 17 Ibero-American countries will continue exploring until July 15, when they will travel to Madrid and tour Spain’s Extremadura and Andalusia regions.
The academic-cultural project was created in 1979 by reporter and adventurer Miguel de la Quadra-Salcedo based on a proposal by King Juan Carlos I, with the goal of building an Ibero-American youth community.
After a two-hour bus ride from Merida, the capital of Yucatan state, the group camped 1,314 kilometers (about 817 miles) by road east of Mexico City, and trekked to Ria Celestun, a biosphere reserve that they toured on boats.
