US President Barack Obama makes his way to board Air Force One before departure from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on May 2, 2013. Obama is headed for visits to Mexico and Costa Rica.

US President Barack Obama landed in Mexico on Thursday at the start of a three-day trip that will also take him to Costa Rica, with trade, US immigration reform and the drug war high on the agenda.

The runways of Mexico City's international airport closed for half an hour to let Air Force One land, and Obama was scheduled to head to the historic National Palace downtown for talks with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.
