Sailing down Mexican coast

My good friend and I wish to sail along the Mexican coast on a trip that will eventually take us to Patagonia. My friend is a good sailor, but I am new to it. To sail close to shore, and camping on the beach, how large of a boat is needed? How much experience would be required? Which side should we sail down, The Gulf or Pacific? We do not have a boat now and wish to spend as little money as possible on one. Also, I have heard that there are pirates, are they a threat?
