Head space volatiles from flowers, as well as green and ripe mango fruit of cv. Ataulfo from Soconusco, Chiapas, were collected using Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME). Identification of chemical species was carried out by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS). A complex mixture of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes was found. 3-carene, α-pinene, myrcene, limonene, terpinolene, β-selinene and the sesquiterpene tentatively identified as germacrene D were the major constituents. This information could be valuable to characterize certain aspects of genetic traits, which in turn will be useful for breeding programs, and to provide assessment of cross pollination techniques
