As an independent culture, no: the Aztec civilization was destroyed by Spanish conquistadors some 500 years ago.

As an ethnic group however, there are more than 2.44 million Native Americans of Nahuatl ancestry (the actual ethnicity of the Aztec people) in Mexico, who represent 2% of the total population of the country.
