    Bolitoglossa yucatana is found throughout the northern Yucatan and Quintana Roo states of Mexico. There have been a few records of specimens found in the south-central state of Campeche and two found in the very northern regions of Belize.

    This species usually resides in caves or cenotes, but it can also be found in thorn forests and tropical evergreen forests. Bolitoglossa yucatana is very tolerant of dry conditions (see Description) (Dundee and Scheibe 2000).
