What religion do most Central Americans practice and How many are Protestants?

Most Central Americans are Roman Catholic, but there are a fair number of Protestants, particularly Baptists and Evangelicals.

Some Native Americans practice ancestral religions.

In Guatemala, Mayan traditions have mingled with Catholic ones, producing original results, for example, the Christmas mask dance, with its colorful masks and costumes.

Protestants represent 30 percent of the population of Guatemala.
