Cubans in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City are a Cuban street gang based in Little Havana, Vice City. They are led by Umberto Robina and are enemies of both the Cholos and the Haitians. Umberto runs the gang first from his home in Little Havana, but later begins to run the gang from the Café Robina, which his father Alberto owns and operates.



In 1984 the Cubans are in conflict with a Mexican street-gang the Cholos over control of Little Havana and Little Haiti. Cubans leader Umberto Robina employs Victor Vance to aid him in his fight against the Cholos. Umberto Robina asked Victor to prove his worth to his gang by picking up a package from Downtown in a race with Hilberto, Carlos, Fernandez and other Cuban gang members.

Victor Vance then begins to work with the Cubans, which includes killing various Cholos gang members, causing havoc in Little Havana, and picking up Alberto Robina from the Hyman Memorial Stadium to avoid a possible abduction and/or murder. The Cubans eventually win the war with the Cholos after stealing their weapons supply and destroying the warehouse that the weapons had been stored in.


By 1986, Cubans found themselves in a war with the Haitians. Umberto Robina contacts and employs Tommy Vercetti to aid him in the war with the Haitians. After completing a boat challenge with Rico, Tommy begins to help Cubans against the Haitians. Following this, Tommy Vercetti helps steal a van full of drugs, killing various Haitians for two briefcases and blowing up a factory owned by the Haitians.

Tommy Vercetti is, however, also working for Auntie Poulet, the leader of the Haitians. Auntie Poulet drugs Tommy with her Juju Juice and has him collect three briefcases before the authorities, blow up boats and Cuban gang members using an remote controlled plane and killing various Cuban gang members in a fight between the Cubans and Haitians. Auntie Poulet eventually turns on Tommy, telling him that she no longer needs his services.

Tommy eventually returns to working for Cubans, and helps them destroy a Haitian drugs factory in Little Haiti. The final result of the war between Cubans and the Haitians is unknown, but by the end of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Cubans had the upper hand. Umberto Robina and Cuban gang members also treat Tommy Vercetti as an equal, with Umberto once saying: "Tommy, to us, you Cuban".

Cuban gang members are either seen wearing white sleeveless shirts, red bandanas and jeans, or a fedora hat, light yellow shirts and black pants. They are armed with 9mm pistols.
