Massive migration processes are nothing new, the history of humanity has always been characterized by a constant movement of individuals or groups that move from one side of the planet to another in search of better living conditions. The end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century was marked by a massive migratory flow to the American continent, where the United States and La- tin America represented the main attractions for millions of people, both European and Asian. These migratory waves include the Arabs who left Middle East for America through a long and arduous journey. In the specific case of Mexico, between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the next, about 10,000 Arabs, of Lebanese majority, entered in the country, initially settled throughout the country and later settled in the large cities of Ciudad de México and Guadalajara. The present study intends to investigate the Arab presence in Mexico and for it in the following pages it will be made, in the first place, the reconstruction of the Arab migratory flow, analyzing the available sources that allow us to establish the number of Arabs that entered Mexico between 1870 and 1950; and, secondly, the pioneers of such migration will be traced by reconstructing the beginnings of displacement.
