The rewards will be based on the tier of Mastery completed for Unbound and Unrepentant as shown below.
You will receive the relevant rewards based on the number of Pesomystics and Crew-D Gestures collected by you.
In addition to the Mastery Rewards listed below, you will also receive 100 Pesos as an incentive to start exploring Mexico.

All the districts can be completed by doing jobs which consume your energy.  There are 4 Tiers to be mastered for each of the Districts – Bronze, Silver, Gold and Ruby.
You won’t see any Bandits in Mexico!

Q: How do I navigate through the new Map interface of Mexico? 
: Using the Mexico map interface, you will be able to navigate through the available Districts, Jobs and Properties.
Please click on available District icons to access available jobs. Clicking on any active District will directly take you to the available jobs.

District Mastery progress is indicated within the District icon.
You can directly collect from a City Property from the Map.

You can also visit the City Properties page to collect or Build from your properties:

Q: How many Properties are currently available in Mexico?
Currently, there are two properties available in Mexico – Hacienda and Pasaporte Office. Mastering the first job in Tijuana and Chihuahua Districts will unlock them respectively.  
Each Property gives you valuable resources to expand your domain and be a law unto yourself.
·      Your Hacienda provides Pesos.
Your Pasaporte Office allows you to craft Consumable Loot.
Q: Are there any Bonus Districts in Mexico? 
No, currently there are no Bonus Districts in Mexico.
Q: Is there a way I can switch from the Map interface to the user interface similar to other locations in Mafia Wars?
No, at the moment, you cannot change or switch the user interface.

Q: Who are the Bosses of Mexico and how do I defeat them?
Every District in Mexico is ruled by its respective Boss. As you progress through a District, the Boss will appear from time to time and challenge you, demanding a cut for operating in their territory.
The following Bosses rule the current Districts of Mexico:

When the Boss appears, the Energy and Pesos required for doing Jobs will increase and the pay-out of XP (and Pesos, if available) will decrease. You can either Fight or Bribe the Boss to end the shakedown and win that Round.
When the Boss appears, you will be notified through a splash screen:

When you click on Fight, the Boss Fight screen will open where you can attack the Boss and defeat them.

You can attack the Bosses with Stamina or brand new Ammo that will drop from Jobs, Fights and Robbing in Mexico, from Gifting and the Arena.

Desperado: Do jobs in Mexico to loot Desperado – Daily Limit - 30
Mexicali Machete: Ice opponents to earn one Mexicali Machete per ice (2 for kills) – Daily Limit - 30
Wrenched Apart: Clear Robbing Boards to earn Wrenched Apart or receive them as a Gift from your Friends. Combined Daily Limit – 30
Piped Power: Deal damage to opponents in the Arena to loot Piped Power. Daily Limit - 30
*Your Inventory can only hold up to 50 Ammo of each type. Which means you can no longer loot any more of these ammos if you already reached the limit.
Please note that all daily limit timers reset at 11:59 PM PST (GMT - 8) every day.
You can use the ammo items that you have collected to attack the Boss or you can attack directly using the stamina attack button located directly under the ammo items on the Boss Fight Screen.

Q:  What is the difference between attacking the Boss with consumables and attacking him with my stamina?
A Stamina attack uses up your Stamina and the base damage you do is based upon your attack strength. Ammunition does not use Stamina and they do a variable amount of damage (range based) to the Boss per attack.
Q: Will I be able to continue doing jobs in Mexico even if the Boss is active? 
 Yes, you will still be able to do jobs in Mexico while the Boss is active.
However, the Boss will hold his cut of XP and Pesos from the jobs you do. This will be indicated in the game as shown below.
You will receive the held amount back to your account provided that you defeat the Boss within the time frame they are active.

Q: What will happen if I am unable to defeat the Boss before the timer runs out? 
 If you are unable to defeat the Boss (in other words, bring the Boss’ Health down to 0) before the timer runs out, the XP and Pesos held by them will be forfeited.
The Boss will regenerate up to 20% of their remaining Health by the next encounter. However, Boss’ health will never reach beyond their Max Health.
For example: The Boss’ total health was 4000. You managed to reduce it to 1000 and the timer ran out. In the next encounter, the Boss’ new health will be 1200 (1000+20%).

Q: What is Diablo Mode? What are the Rewards to defeat the Boss? 
 Once you successfully defeat a Boss, you will receive any cut held by Boss back to your accounts. In addition, you will receive Rewards for defeating the Boss.
Once the Boss is defeated, Diablo Mode will be active for the next 15 minutes or 25 Jobs, whichever is earlier.

You will be notified in the game once Diablo Mode is active:

A notification icon in the Job section will notify you about the total Bonuses gained and Time/Number of jobs left in Diablo Mode.

Within 15 minutes of activation of Diablo Mode OR 25 Jobs after activation (whichever is earlier), the Diablo Mode will be deactivated again. You will be notified through an in-game notification about the total Bonuses earned from the Diablo Mode.

Q: How do I activate Diablo Mode again?
Diablo Mode gets activated only after defeating the Mexico District Bosses in a round. Wait for the Boss to appear again and defeat them to activate Diablo Mode.
Q: How many times can a District Boss be defeated (or Killed)? Are there any Mastery Rewards?
You can defeat each District Boss up to a maximum of 15 times. Once you defeat a Boss for the 15th time, you will be able to recruit them as your Henchman.

Following are the Henchmen for the current Mexico Districts. Defeat the respective Boss 15 times to recruit them as your Henchman:

Once you have defeated a Boss 15 times, they will show as recruited on your District and will not appear again in between doing jobs.

Q: How does the Banco Dorado work in Mexico?
The Banco Dorado is the Bank of Mexico and needs to be upgraded in order to deposit more Pesos. It has 5 upgradable levels with a minimum capacity to store 1,000 Pesos and a maximum capacity to store 1,000,000 Pesos.
The Banco Dorado can be upgraded using a total of five parts out of which one part (Vault Door) can only be earned by mastering any Mexico District to any level. For Mastering a District to each level (Bronze, Silver, Gold or Ruby), you will receive one Vault Door.

The other 4 parts can be collected from Feeds or can be purchased using Reward Points. You can post a Feed for a specific Bank part every 18 hours and can receive a maximum of 4 parts per Feed Post.
