List of Churches and Religions in Ajijic and Chapala

Mexico is predominately a Catholic country. There are Catholic churches in every town here. Social life for the majority of the Mexicans revolves around the Catholic Church and church holidays. There are numerous processions and celebrations based on the Catholic religion.

Surprisingly there are also many other religions here.  Since there are so any expats in the lakeside area, there are also other religions and churches.  Every church group here has an extended social life besides the services. I have been to yard sales, potlucks, lectures and other celebrations that were put on by various churches here. If you come here and can’t find your church, Guadalajara may have it. It takes less than an hour to get into Guadalajara so that is an easy trip.
