Veracruz Mexico Mormon Temples

Located in the centuries-old port town of Boca del Rio, Mexico, the Veracruz Mexico Temple is the 93rd operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the 10th in Mexico.

In 1875 Brigham Young called men to take materials about the Mormon Church to Mexico, and these men arrived there in 1876. That year, five people were baptized into the Mormon Church in Hermosillo, Sonora. The Church has grown a great deal in Mexico since the first missionaries came to the country in the latter half of the 19th century, and that progress is reflected in the increasing number of temples. The Veracruz Mexico Temple was just one of 11 temples in Mexico dedicated between 1999 and 2002. By 2014 there were 1.3 million Church members, 1,980 congregations and 34 missions throughout Mexico.
