The pictures aren't that good for ID's but I guess the first one is Laemanctus longipes. Where in Mexico did you find them and have you another picture?

Hi,

the salamander looks like a species from Bolitoglossa mexicana complex. Pattern and distribution match.

Greets,
Mario

Then Laemanctus longipes might be right.
