The original location founded in this area was named Nohcacab and was inhabited during the Classic Maya period (600-1000 A.C.). At the conquest an encomienda, that is a tribute-paying small community with an ethnically mixed population which included Spanish people, criollos, mestizos and mulattos, was established.
The city of Ticul which is the municipal seat had a population of 21,147, the ninth-largest community in the state in population. The majority are ethnically Maya. Its largest other towns are Pustunich and Yotholín. The city of Ticul was also a town of the Pre-Columbian Maya civilization. Ticul was established as a Spanish colonial town by 1549. The Republic of Yucatán granted Ticul the status of a city in 1847. The Iglesia De Muna church dates to the 16th century. Muna's Carnaval is celebrated throughout the town in August and April. During the celebration dances, bullfights, and many festivities are held.
