Thank you for your question.
There are no laws which give you a "buyers remorse" cancellation option for timeshares purchased internationally. The right to cancel, if there is one at all (which there likely is not), will be stated in and controlled by the purchase agreement (i.e., the sales contract). In other words, if there is a right to terminate the agreement and get any of your money back, it will be stated in the agreement.
The only other option would be to file a suit and assert some sort of breach of contract or fraud. You would likely have to do this in Mexico unless there is some basis under which you can legally assert US jurisdiction over the company. The fact thaat you are in the US alone is not sufficient.
So, in the end, there is not much hope for a legal recovery. Your best bet may be to try to defray the expense by selling your timeshare, or otherwise listing it for rent.
