Yagnelis Mestre (born October 24, 1983 in Havana) is a Cuban judoka, who played for the half-middleweight category. She won a bronze medal for the 57 kg class at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Mestre represented Cuba at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where she competed for the women's half-lightweight class (52 kg). She lost the first preliminary match to North Korea's An Kum-Ae, who scored a waza-ari-awasete-ippon before the start of the second minute. Because her opponent advanced further into the final match against China's Xian Dongmei, Mestre offered another shot for a bronze medal through the repechage, where she was defeated by Venezuela's Flor Velázquez, who only scored a single koka within a five-minute period.
