Tenabo

The greatness of small things

The name Tenabo means "place where measurement is by palms", it is the smallest municipality of the state, but not so small that you can measure it by palms! It is small in size, but big on natural resources and archaeological sites, most notably the town of Kanki the ruins of "La Xoch" and "Chun Cedro", which are Puc style Mayan structures.

Enjoy its jungle and mangroves in the Petenes Nature Reserve and meet Tenabo craftsmen, who are experts in making hammocks and colorful typical costumes of the State, including huipiles, suits and embroidered blouses that represent the traditional clothing of Campeche women.

Women are also the protagonist of the culinary scene, transforming fruit from the region into delicious handmade preserves. Traditional dishes are also delicious, such as roasted suckling pig, pork and beans, stew and salpicón or pipián style venison. And to round off your meal, there are delicious desserts such as meringues, sweet bread, papaya bread, banana bread, pumpkin bread and bread made from a type of potato similar to cassava.

Among its holiday calendar are the municipal carnival, full of tradition and uniqueness, where sounds and color fill the streets and houses.
