Mexico: Rich in culture

The culture of Mexico reflects the complexity of Mexico 's history through the blending of Pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican civilizations and the culture of Spain , imparted during Spain 's 300 year colonization of Mexico.

In Mexican culture, it is usually considered undesirable to show weakness or open oneself to others outside of the family. As a result, a strong sense of community is not a trait of Mexican culture, because strong friendships cannot be built without some level of closeness. Relationships are generally approached with a gauge of disbelieve because of fear of betrayal, which for a Mexican is one of the most humiliating experiences one could go through.

» Mexico is known worldwide for its folk art traditions, mostly derived from a combination of indigenous and Spanish crafts. Mainly distinguished among handicrafts are the clay pottery made in the valley of Oaxaca and the bird and animal figures made in the village of Tomala . Colorfully embroidered cotton garments, cotton or wool shawls and outer garments, and colorful baskets and rugs are seen everywhere.

Nominally, the country is predominantly Roman Catholic (89%), with 6% adhering to various Protestant faiths and the remaining 5% either adhering to other smaller religions or remaining unaffiliated
