Salt comes from two sources. One is sea salt and the other is from salt mines. The primary source of salt a thousand years ago was the salt lagoons of the northern Yucatán peninsula. The lagoon was dam up connecting the sea and to make salt beds. Nature does the work through evaporation and then they just scooped up the salt. This method is still used today around the world for sea salt.
