Tamaulipas, estado (state), northeastern Mexico. It is bounded by the United States (Texas) to the north, the Gulf of Mexico to the east, and the states of Veracruz to the south, San Luis Potosí to the southwest and west, and Nuevo León to the west. Ciudad Victoria is the state capital.
The central and southern portions of Tamaulipas are mountainous, but there are extensive, fertile plains in the north. The sandy, lagoon-dotted coastal zone is sparsely inhabited. The Rio Grande (Río Bravo del Norte) defines the Tamaulipas-Texas border, including a narrow strip of territory that extends northwestward between Nuevo León and Texas.
With varied climates and vegetation, numerous crops (sorghum, soybeans, safflower, corn [maize], sugarcane, tobacco, cotton, coffee, wheat, and citrus fruits) can be cultivated, and agriculture is the state’s main economic activity. Tamaulipas has more area of irrigated cropland than any other Mexican state.
