For positive ID you will need to show the leaves too. If it's an oak a photo of the acorns will be needed as well to determine what kind of oak it is.

Hard to say without seeing the grain or bark up close. From the photo the splits appear too dark in color to be oak, but weathering conditions can affect that. Oaks can grow in that region. That piece in the front in the second picture (upside down Y) looks lighter in color that the splits. The bark on that piece looks like Hickory, but I wouldn't put any money on it if this was all I had to go by.

Central Mexico?? More than likely could be Mesquite especially with the very dark brown splits.
