Question: When flying from the United States to an airport in Mexico, you must land at a Mexican airport of entry. When flying to Mexico from the Bahamas, your first landing must be at one of only two airports. Which airports are they?
Answer: The two airports are Tapachula International Airport (MMTP) or the Cozumel International Airport (MMCZ). The first landing in Mexico must be at one of those airports when arriving from South America, Central America, Bahamas, or the Caribbean.
