Tamaulipas has a number of important cities besides Tampico such as Matamoros, and the business centers, Reynosa and Ciudad Victoria, the state’s capital.
Tamaulipas’ rich coasts and forests have been inhabited for more than 8,000 years. In the 16th century, during the colonial period, the Spanish colonizers and Franciscan missionaries were drawn to the area's abundant natural resources and strategic coastal location.
The state has a diversity of ecosystems, from dry, cactus-adorned inland areas, to beautiful beaches and the dramatic mountains and valleys of the Sierra Madre Oriental in the southeast. The El Cielo Biosphere Reserve is a must visit place to enjoy the vast forest, offering activities such as camping, mountain biking, hiking, birding tours and excursions.
