Yucatan’s activities kicked off this Saturday with the “Yucatruck”, a food truck that will bring the city’s inhabitants and visitors the unique and original flavor of cochinita pibil tacos, to promote the destination through the flavors, smells, and colors of Yucatan and thus generate more visitors to the state.
The “Yucatruck”, which will be at six strategic points in the CDMX, will hand out 12,000 free cochinita tacos, formally kicking off Yucatán’s activities at the 47th edition of the Tianguis Turístico to be held March 26-29 at Centro Citibanamex.

Let’s remember that the state continues its celebrations for the Year of Yucatecan Gastronomy, which began in July 2022, and whose objective is to promote the state through its millenary flavors and traditions, such as the culinary offerings of chef and cook, Pedro Medina Casanova, from Taqueria La Lupita, recognized for having an extraordinary flavor in traditional dishes in the Yucatecan capital.
After the protocol ceremony, the Governor supervised the Yucatan stand, which was inaugurated this Monday, March 27th, and also toured the tourism pavilion where all the states will exhibit their products and services during the Tianguis.
