...Tourist cards can be troublesome.
I missed my connecting flight from Mexico City to Toronto, and my card was taken away before boarind the flight in Zihua.
You can imagine the confusion this caused at the Immigration at the Mexico City airport. Without the card I could not get out of the airport!!!
I ended up going through the Immigration again (first time was when I landed in Mexico City on a flight from Toronto) Had to fill out the card, and have it stamped again. The Immigration guy wasn't impressed by the fact I did't have the original card, but finaly relented after realizing the snafu.
Advice-don't surrender you card (if at all possible) in Zihua if you are making the connecting flight in Mexico City, because you will almost certainly miss the connection. Reason - crappy weather (fog/pollution) at this time of the year.
