'Piso' could be flat/apartment too. It is conceivable that they are house hunting and have already seen one flat... and are now on their way to the second...

In Spain, a floor/story of a building is called "planta" rather than "piso."

Does Mexico follow the European floor numbering (i.e. the ground floor is not the first floor but effectively floor 0), whereas in the US we call the ground floor the first floor

In Spanish the first floor (primer piso) is the floor above the ground floor (planta baja).

Why can't it be "Do we go to the third floor?"

Segundo is "second". It's more effective to learn the precise words for the numbers than trying to translate the different storey counting between American English and Spanish.

I thought it was 'Let's go to the second floor'.

"Let's [do something]" is odd as a question.
