If the gift is $100,000 or more you are required to file form 3520 to report it. You are not taxed but you must report. You can receive as much in gifts as someone will provide to you and not be taxed on the gift but the reporting is required if the gift(s) are $100,000 or more in the year.
Mexico does not levy a gift tax on the giver or receiver.

Did you need a link to the form 3520?
Please let me know.
You must file Form 3520, Annual Return to Report Transactions with Foreign Trusts and Receipt of Certain Foreign Gifts, if, during the current tax year, you recive Gifts or bequests valued at more than $100,000 from a nonresident alien individual or foreign estate.
So if you receive $100,000 (in total gifts from all foreign individuals) in 2015 you would not have to file the 3520.
Eacj year stands independently so receiving additional gifts in 2016 would not effect 2015 reporting.
