FAQ: Religion

What if any religion is practiced in Mexico?

The majority of Mexicans embrace Catholicism as introduced to them by the Spaniards, but there are many other religions. What seems unusual is to be non-religious, so be prepared to field the question “what religion are you”.

How important is religion to Mexicans?

Very. In fact, virtually every town is built around a central church square. You will see all kinds of religion based celebrations and events, and even funerals take on a parade-like atmosphere. Most Mexicans take their religion very seriously and it is an important part of their everyday life.
