Costa Rica - Religions

Roman Catholicism, the predominant religion, is the official religion of the state, but the constitution guarantees religious freedom. About 70% of the population in 2001 was Roman Catholic. About 19% belong to other Christian churches. Of these churches, primary Protestant denominations include Methodist, Baptist, Episcopalian, Mormon, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Seventh-Day Adventists. There are also small communities of Quakers, Mennonites, and Beechy Amish. Other religions include Judaism, Islam, Hare Krishna, and the Baha'i faith.
