“We have received an incredible response; two young people who came from Brazil decided to make the trip all the way to Yucatán to taste the cochinita right here on this land. And with them, a lot of other stories; national and international tourists alike, North Americans who live here, from Atlanta, Missouri, New York City, even local people came from Tekax, Yucatan, to taste our cochinita. I believe that the panorama is promising and regardless of whether I am the spokesperson or instrument of the documentary, people come to visit the Yucatán ”, Miriam continued.

Miriam Peraza is the owner of the Manjar Blanco restaurant, where the cochinita pibil is the main specialty, of course.

She explained that tourists from Mexico City, Sonora, Chihuahua, Poza Rica Veracruz have come to visit her, because “the documentary made them feel the mysticism, the tradition, the originality of a cochinita taco ”.

“Because it is not just a taco, but there is much more to it, from the moment of cultivating the axiote, preparing it, soaking it, making the paste, it’s a ritual. Many people are interested in the way we Yucatecans feel about our traditions, how we communicate with tenderness, emotion, and now, thanks to “las Crónicas del Taco”, all Mexicans feel part of this vibe ”, Miriam continued.

On this issue, she urged the state tourism authorities to seek national tourism and assured that Mexico is very aware of what happens in Yucatan.

“Right now, Yucatan is in fashion, people want to travel to Yucatan this time of the year, because of the warm weather that prevails during the winter”, Miriam declared.

She added that in order for the tourism industry in Yucatan to continue operating and, in particular, the gastronomic sector, it is vitally important to fully comply with the health protocols that the authorities have established.

“We, in this case, are operating at 50 percent of capacity, and with strict protocols, as it should continue. But tourism will eventually return and it is a very important industry for our state, ” Miriam Peraza concluded.
