Punta Chueca is one of two Seri communities in the Seriland Indigenous Reserve. It lies directly across from Isla Tiburon, Mexico's largest Island. Although it appears that it would make sense to launch from Punta Chuaca for any Midriff Islands expedition, in fact, everything is easier if undertaken from Kino Bay. Punta Chueca offers little in the way of services, other than securing a tribal permit for stays on Tiburon. Better to base out of Kino Bay and make the hour trip up to Punta Chuaca by car for permits.

Simply drive up to the beach in front of the village. Parking must be arranged with private individuals in town. Ask around for Ernesto Molino who understands what paddlers needs are.

Security in the Punta Chueca can be problematic from time-to-time. Although the tribal militia is generally effective, they are few in number and tend to look after tribal interests before those of visitors (who are still viewed with suspicion by some members of the tribe). There are regularly Mexican military patrols along this section of coast - always be prepared to show identification and explain what you are up to.

If you plan on crossing to Isla Tiburon you will need to get a permit from the Cu'um cac (Seri) Tribal Offices in Punta Chueca.

Ernesto Molino is often called in to laison with outsiders.
