Yucatecan cuisine has one of the most varied arrays of delicious dishes amongst the 32 states of Mexico. Some of them are unique to the Yucatan and very hard to find outside of the peninsula, while others are eaten throughout the country.

The influence of ancient mayans, spaniards, frenchs and lebanese are specially noted in the cuisine.
