In brief: Would you drink it?

If you would drink the water then use it to clean your dentures.
Tap water could be better in mexico than here in the states.

In brief: Uncertain

If you wouldn't drink it then be cautious i guess.
Depends on where in mexico and what is in the water. If concerned you could boil the water (not with the denture in it) for about 5-10 min then use that water to clean the denture.

In brief: Might be

Never been to mexico, but heard that for outsiders it is a risk to drink the water. Same would go for using it on anything going into your mouth.
I would use only known safe water that you would drink.
