Mexico, for the most part, is a Catholic country. The Virgin of the Immaculate Conception, the patron saint of Isla Mujeres, is celebrated twice a year, one is at the founding parties and the other on December 8. A previous day a caravan is performed singing the virgin’s birthday song to culminate in mass. While on December 8 there is a procession with several boats in honor of the virgin.
