Latin American / Spanish religon – View of the Virgin Mary?

I’m looking into how latin american/spanish religion differs from UK views (broadly, not going into catholic versus christian views or anything).

I heard that the spanish / latin american people view the virgin mary as a saint, and in some ways revere her more then jesus christ. Any info on this? What do they think of her specifically? Do they still view jesus the same way, or is the Virgin Mary the main focus? Is it right they call her "Santa Maria"?

Anything else note worthy in the spanish/latin american beliefs?

Thank you so much for the effort.
