Thanks.

It was in a letter, so I guess maybe it was misspelled.

There is no such word as "tranquito". You have "tranquilo" (tranquil, calmed, quiet).

My first thought was that you were looking for a conjugated verb (tú tranquitas), but there is no tranquitar in the dictionary either. Google tranquitas. It is the name of a town in Mexico. This is why we always ask for context in translating a word.

Are you sure it's not "tranquilas"? I often hear that expression when I thank someone for something:

Me: Gracias por ayudarme

Other person: Tanquilo. No fue nada. Meaning: Sea tranquilo. No fue nada.

If I've got the wrong idea here, maybe a little context would help us figure it out.
