I can't find much information on it, other than that it's distinct from the rest of Mexico, and according to an advisor from my college it's fairly slow and clear, so it's easy for learners to understand.

The only sound clips I can find are these: http://www4.ncsu.edu/~jcmichno/yucatanspanish1.html

I can't say they sound different from most other Spanish I've heard, but I still have an untrained ear.

Correct. That's why you shouldn't be even concerned about it. If anything, you'll get accustomed to it, and that's that.
