GET TO KNOW THE STATE OF TAMAULIPAS MEXICO

Tamaulipas, officially the Free and Sovereign State of Tamaulipas, is one of the 31 states which, with Mexico City, comprise the 32 Federal Entities of Mexico.

It is divided into 43 municipalities and its capital city is Ciudad Victoria.

Located in northeastern Mexico, it is bordered by the states of Veracruz to the southeast, San Luis Potosí to the southwest, and Nuevo León to the west.

Escudo Estado De Tamaulipas Mexico

To the north, it has a 370 km stretch of the U.S.–Mexico border along the state of Texas.

The name Tamaulipas is derived from Tamaholipa, a Huastec term in which the tam- prefix signifies “place”.

No scholarly agreement exists on the meaning of holipa, but “high hills” is a common interpretation.

Another explanation of the state name is that it is derived from Ta ma ho’lipam. In addition to the capital city, Ciudad Victoria, the state’s largest cities include Reynosa, Matamoros, Nuevo Laredo, Tampico, and Mante.

MAIN CITIES

Tampico is a city and port in the southeastern part of the state of Tamaulipas, Mexico.

It is located on the north bank of the Pánuco River, about 10 kilometres inland from the Gulf of Mexico, and directly north of the state of Veracruz.

During the period of Mexico’s first oil boom in the early 20th century, the city was the “chief oil-exporting port of the Americas” and the second-busiest in the world, yielding profits that were invested in the city’s famous architecture, often compared to that of Venice and New Orleans.
