The online newspaper The Yucatan Times began operations on December 4, 2010, created by Raul Curmina and his wife Silvia as an English-language news website with weekly updates. So it remained for two and a half years when a group of investors decided to purchase the online newspaper. 

On September 15, 2013, The Yucatan Times began a new era. A Content Manager was appointed to lead a team of reporters and editors, updating the site daily, implementing a Social Media strategy, and designating an Editorial Board consisting of a group of 9 people of different nationalities, selected on their background and objectivity, which are based on research, analysis and individual experience to reach a concerted vision of the crucial issues of Mexico and the world.

The Yucatan Times publishes the most important regional, national, and international news of relevance. We are an online news platform that targets the English-speaking community in the Yucatan Peninsula, the rest of Mexico, and English speakers worldwide who are looking at the Yucatan region as their next travel destination or place of residence.
