Tenancingo is a municipality in the Cuscatlán department of El Salvador.

It is located approximately 15 kilometers (9.3 mi) from the deviation of the Pan-American Highway from which it is accessed via a paved road. (Approximately 2–3 kilometers (1.2–1.9 mi) of that road are gravel).

The date of first settlement is uncertain. Numerous indigenous artifacts have been found that indicate that the site of the present Tenancingo was populated by Pipil Native Americans in Pre-Columbian times.
