Hasn't there been a lot of abuse in the past years by mexico and its citizens? I have heard that you have to be a mexican citizen to purchase land there. Also there have been people who have built there and lived for many years and then loose their land and house when someone files a lawsuit claiming that the original "sale" was not valid (sometimes twenty years after the fact).
