Tenosique is a town located in Tenosique Municipality in the southeastern corner of the state of Tabasco, in Mexico. Its official name is Tenosique de Pino Suárez. The town had a 2005 census population of 31,392 inhabitants (the fourth-largest community in the state after Villahermosa, Cárdenas, and Comalcalco), while the municipality had a population of 55,601.Tenosique's etymology: from the Maya words "Tana" or house and "tsiic" weaving or counting threads. Which leaves us with "casa de los hilanderos " or "House of Weavers or thread counters". Tenosique was founded c. 1000 B.C. in the Preclassic Maya Period (according to Magnolia Paz Nexo in her book Tenosique Prehispánico y Colonial edited by the Government of Tabasco). Since then Tenosique has been occupied uninterruptedly. Vice President and national hero of the Revolution, Jose Maria Pino Suarez was born in Tenosique in 1869, and the town now bears his name.To personalize your trip to Tenosique, create itinerary details specific to you using our Mexico road trip tool .
