I live in a small town in México called Cuisillos. I play pokemon go and the streets, buildings, parks, etc, of the town are not showing. As you can see here, it's just a long road where the town is supposed to be. I checked it too on the GNOME Maps app, which uses openstreet maps and the same thing happens, you can see the screenshot here. But when I looked the map https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/20.6100/-103.7734 all the streets, buildings, parks, etc, are there. Why is this happening? How can I fix it?

It looks like much of the town has been mapped about nine months ago. Maybe the Pokemon app and GNOME maps app have not updated there maps since? Just a guess.

But that is my concern, that two different apps show the same thing. So that's why I thought there might be some kind of trouble or error on the maps. Personally, I find very unlikely that two apps hadn't updated their maps.

If you go to osm.org and it is on the map there, then the data is fine. If it does not appear on other maps, it is their update cycle, no matter how many maps you encounter that do not show the data.

According to their web site gnome uses Mapbox maps. Mapbox has been known to lag considerably behind publishing of OSM updates since they apply the some internal quality checking before releasing.

Not surprising at all for Pokemon Go which appears to update very infrequently, and also updates different aspects of the data at different times. I don't think they ever comment publicly on map updates, but some players believe the visual map was last updated in January 2018 - e.g. see this reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/TheSilphRoad/comments/asb7ex/when_will_the_next_openstreetmaps_update_be/
