The regional public holidays of Tingo are on 8 and 9 September. Local dishes include chochoca, mote, dulce de frijol, puchero, shurumbo and cuy with fries.
To the north the District of Tingo has a border with Colcamar District, to the east with Levanto District (Chachapoyas) and Magdalena District (Chachapoyas), to the south-east with San Juan de Lopecancha District, in the south-west with María District, and to the west with Longuita District. There is a highway to Tingo that continues towards the fortress of Kuelap and the market of Yumal.
Tingo is notable for its people and their famously short tempers, a leading tingan diplomat was once sent into exile for making a "chacypya", a local delicacy containing guava and rice, using a recipe that differed from the regional standard.
