When the Mexico (Aztecs) first encountered Cortes, they thought him to be from one of their prophecies. Giving the Spaniards permission to walk as they pleased through the whole empire.
Although they soon realized that they weren't really from the prophecy, they still didn't fight them until Cortes and his men started killing them. Mainly the Spanish were weak; if it weren't for the Tlaxcalan and many other native tribes the Spanish wouldn't have done well from the beginning.

The Aztecs had a prophecy about their god, a white man, who sailed across the sea and someday would return. When they saw Cortés, they thought he was this god come back to them and let him and his people walk freely through the city and did not attack them until Cortés, his people and a group of Indians, whom the Aztecs had conquered and now taxed, started killing the Aztecs
Many Aztec people were actually killed by the diseases that the European men brought over with them. Because the Aztecs had never been exposed to European diseases, they had no immunity to them. Many of the Aztecs contracted diseases like Smallpox from the European soldiers and died from illness as opposed to actually casualties of war.
There is a common misconception stating that Aztecs confused the Spaniards for gods; in fact the Aztecs knew they were men, but were curious to find out what were their motives. Unfortunately, Cortes and his conquistadors were greedy conquerors in search for gold and ultimately destroyed the Aztec empire.
