Luis H. Alvarez of Mexico's center-right National Action Party and independent lawmaker Adolfo Aguilar Zinser met with the dissidents for a little more than an hour on Sunday, said Hector Palacio, head of Cuba's Democratic Solidarity Party.
Most members of the Mexican delegation had returned home, and they could not be reached Sunday evening, but the meeting was confirmed in Havana by Mexico's Notimex news agency.
"It was a very agreeable meeting," said Palacio. "The ties between Cubans and Mexicans have always been close and this could be an important step for us."
Also at the meeting were two of Cuba's well-known opposition leaders, Elizardo Sanchez, president of the Cuban Commission of Human Rights and National Reconciliation, and Osvaldo Paya, leader of Cuba's Christian Liberation Movement.
Like Palacio's group, both of those organizations are considered illegal by Cuba's communist government.
Mexico has had close ties with Cuba since before the 1959 revolution led by Fidel Castro and was the only Latin American nation not to break ties with the communist nation during the height of the Cold War.
Opponents here say they have never met with government representatives associated with Mexico's ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party.
