I guess you mean tabla-n instead of table-n, as table is not an Spanish
word. Anyway, you can read how to make changes to the Spanish defaults
in Babel in the documentation ---in your terminal type

texdoc spanish

and in the PDF that opens (page 6) you'll find that the option es-tabla
will change the \tablename from cuadro to tabla every time you use
\begin{table}.
