Both coming from the US, I'm meeting up with a relative in Oaxaca airport. She is super nervous about travelling internationally alone. I was hoping to wait for her and go through customs together (we arrive w/in 30 minutes of each other). I have a layover in Mexico City first and will arrive via Aeromexico. She is flying directly from the US on American Airlines. This is my first time travelling to Mexico and I'm not sure if I can wait for her before customs or if I will have already passed through customs when I arrive in Mexico City. Our Spanish language skills are beginner level.
Thank you for any advice you can share.
(I travelled alone to Great Britain last summer using Rick Steve's guide and absolutely loved it!)
