There is a small Cuban diaspora in Mexico. According to the 2005 census, there were roughly 12,000 Cubans citizens living in Mexico.

Migration history[edit]

The first Cubans arrived in Mexico during after Mexican Revolution, a group of about 12,000 Cubans now. The southern state of Tabasco in Mexico held a significant amount of Cuban immigration. Today, the population in certain areas of the State is Cuban descendant. They are easily identifiable since they have African traits (dark skin, curly hair, facial features). Also the accent they have when they speak Spanish is similar to the accent in Cuba.
