Adelind comes to us from Angers, France. He’s the youngest member of the Terra Maya team. After a first experience in Malaysia, he successfully realized his dream of discovering Latin America. It is during an internship during his Master’s degree in tourism that he set foot for the first time on Mexican soil and at Terra Maya, 1 year ago. Franco-German, he is in charge of developing the German market. Passionate about sports and adventure, he hasn’t finished discovering all that Mexico has to offer! His favorite playground? Chiapas, where he explores every nook and cranny. After falling in love with the country and a Mexican girl, he will help you discover the passion he has for his adopted country.
