Can Foreigners own land in México?

The Mexican Constitution, passed in to law in 1917, created what is called the "Restricted Zone". This Restricted Zone is 100 kilometer (62 miles) from the borders and 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the coast. And in this Restricted Zone only Mexican can own the land.
