In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

They accept me. This is a Catholic country. This is michoacan, so we're all poor. Tourists pay a small fortune for a hotel.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

I'm retired, but if you can do manual labor, and are good, perhaps. This is a small town. If people are looking for jobs, Morelia, the state capital that is an hour away, is best.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

This is Purepecha country. Of course, people's lives revolve around their families, taking care of their farm animals, and socializing in centro's 2 plazas. Growing and selling vegetables and fruit is a priority.
