Dont know if you know about it, but there is an international site called Couchsurfing.org. As the name implies, people open their homes to travelers such as you. Might wish to look it up and see if you might find some people local to you. Camping has it's merits, but so does couchsurfing!
As you posted earlier, you sometimes feel guilty in taking people's charity. DONT! It makes people feel genuinely good to help other people, and they get the experience of meeting a traveler from another land. It's a wonderful way to share cultures.
From reading other blogs on traveling in Mexico, I would advise you to pack extra tubes, and tube repair kit and a tire inflater of some type. Of course, the tools needed to do a repair are needed as well. Lots of flats in Mexico from what I read. You probably have addressed this already.
Enjoy your travels and stay safe!
EDIT! I just checked out your blog, which I should have done first. I see you have all the tools you may need and aloso already know about Couchsurfing.org. My apologies. Dave
