Unfortunately Koodo doesn't offer such a plan. Their only international texting only package is $15/30 days
75 outgoing texts, Free incoming texts. You would most likely be better off getting a prepaid sim while youre down in mexico

Your phone need to be unlocked  to use a local provider's SIM. 

You can buy an International Text add-on from Koodo. 
Also, you can connect people through apps like FB messenger, Whatsapp while you have WIFI connection. (Make sure your mobile data is off)

Its hard to say. If its a short regular message then it should use a very small amount. If you start sending or recieving pictures and video and if apps start using data in the background then you will end up using more.

You need data or WIFI connection if you want to use imessage,

If you are still in Mexico, Pay-per -use rate of data is $5.00/MB.
