The origin of the garment is disputed, as various claims for the distinctive style have been made in several Latin America countries as well as the Philippines.[3] While some Latin Americans believe guayaberas are of Cuban, or at least Caribbean, origin, Guayaberas have existed in Mexico since pre-columbian times and were created in the Yucatán peninsula of Mexico.
A "spin" on the shirt's origins states that Mexicans either copied the design concept from the "El Encanto" store of Cuba, or emulated the trend from Cuban tourists who visited Mexico. However, it was during the trade routes through the Caribbean that the Mexican shirts got to Cuba and were taken to the Philippines by the Spanish and the evolution of the intricate embroidery started. There is also the stated fact that a similar, prototypical shirt has existed since the 18th century.[3]
The origin of the name is Cuban and is where people assume that the shirt is originally Cuban. Guayabera may come from a Cuban legend that tells of a poor countryside seamstress sewing large pockets into her husband's shirts for carrying guava (guayabas) from the field.[3][4] Guayabera may also have originated from the word yayabero, the word for a person who lived near the Yayabo River in Cuba.[3][5]
Though commonly called guayabera in Yucatán or camisa de Yucatan in Mexico, the shirt is sometimes referred to as a "Mexican Wedding Shirt, among North Americans."

Paquete es decir que los Cubanos son valientes y que aman a su isla. Mirala ahi esta en cadenas, con los Castros por 50 anos. No tiene nadie quien la defienda. pobre de Cuba sus hijos son una mierda. Se preocupan de vivir muy bien en Miami y de quien invento la guayabera pero no de pelear por su patria. Que verguenza.
