Looks like some Agave plant to me.
Agave chiapensis ???
A medium sized species of Agave. Pinkish flowers ?
Looks like Agave Chiapensis but as per wikipedia, the flower spike in A Chiapensis is 2 metres tall. We will have to look further.

Chances of Aechmea mexicana Baker are higher because of inflorescence and kind of leaf serrations.
