Overview

Honey production in the Yucatan Peninsula is not a new issue. For centuries, and since the heyday of the Mayan culture, they had the necessary knowledge to take advantage of the ecosystem that surrounded them. One of the most important economic activities in the region was meliponiculture (cultivation of the stingless bee). Honey and wax were extracted to be marketed together with other agricultural crops. The honey that is most consumed in the country comes from the Peninsula (including Yucatán, Campeche and Quintana Roo) and although it sounds surprising, 95% of all production is exported abroad; then the amount of honey exported by the Peninsula is equivalent to 10,000 tons per year.
There are different types of honey that are produced in the region and they can be differentiated according to their flavor and color. And this is due to a very special fact: bees consume the nectar of different flowers or plants; in the state of Yucatán, bees usually take the nectar of 9 different plants.
