The Congress of the State of Yucatán, or simply the Congress of Yucatán, is the legislative branch of the government of the State of Yucatán. The Congress is the governmental deliberative body of Yucatán, which is equal to, and independent of, the executive. The Congress of Yucatán is a unicameral legislature.

The current session of the Congress consists of 25 deputies (15 elected by the first-past-the-post system and 10 by proportional representation). Deputies are elected to serve for a three-year term.

Since its installation the congress has been renewed 61 times; the current congress, elected in 2015, is known as the LXI Legislature of the Congress of Yucatán.
