The city serves as the municipal seat for the surrounding municipality, with which it shares a name. The city had a 2005 census population of 89,915 persons, while the municipality reported 98,560 inhabitants. The municipality has an area of 87.869 km² (33.926 sq mi).

Temixco is 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) from Cuernavaca and 85 kilometres (53 mi) from Mexico City.

In the 1940s the Comité Japonés de Ayuda Mutua (CJAM; "Japanese Committee of Mutual Aid"), a Japanese mutual aid organization based in Mexico City, obtained a hacienda on 200 hectares (490 acres) of land in Temixco from Alejandro Lacy so it could house newly-arriving Japanese coming from other parts of Mexico. The Japanese had moved in by 1943. A school for Japanese students was established in Temixco to serve those on the hacienda. Eventually Mexican parents began asking for their children to attend the Temixco Japanese school.
