At this point they have nothing arranged; the areas surrounding Boquillas are all private property and they are in the process of getting permits. You can check back closer to December (and, even if they have nothing arranged, they'd probably be happy to arrange something; see Veronica in the visitors center)... they do have beds available, some with inside toilet, some outside, at a very reasonable rate. And you could do as the locals do-- carry the bed outside and sleep under the stars!
