Why don't more FIRE people go to Mexico?

Your health care is largely covered by the state down there

My understanding, from Mexican ex-pats living in Texas, is that IMSS is the provider of last resort. So while low-cost medical care is available, you wouldn't really want to use it.

the cost of living is lower

But you have to add in the additional cost of things you take for granted in the US, like security and clean water. These cannot be taken for granted in Mexico.

and you can hire help much cheaper.

This might be a personal preference. I don't hire a lot of help in the US so that's not really an area of potential savings for me.
