The Cholos are a Mexican gang in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. They are based in the Little Haiti and areas in Little Havana in Vice City. The leader is unknown and they are involved in a turf war with the Cubans/Los Cabrones, Trailer Park Mafia, The Bikers and arms dealer Phil Cassidy.

Their control over Little Havana begins to be threatened in 1984, when the Cubans arrive on the scene, sparking a deadly turf war for complete control of the neighborhood. They were then hired by Martinez to wreak havoc in the streets of Little Havana, but failed thanks to Victor Vance. Next, they attempt to kill Alberto Robina, the father of Umberto Robina (the Cubans' leader). In revenge, Robina decides to launch an all-out attack on the Cholos that results in the Cholos' defeat.

After the Cubans (with the help of Victor Vance) win the turf war for Little Havana, the Cholos are almost completely wiped out (they can still be seen driving in Little Haiti) and their businesses will be either up for sale, damaged or seized by the Bikers. As of 1986, the Haitians are in control of Little Haiti. Although they may have appeared in Phil Cassidy's mission "Gun Runner" in GTA Vice City. It is possible the Cholos went to join the Los Santos Vagos as one Cholo can be heard saying "I'm going to go see my cousin in San Andreas"

The Cholos wear gray headbands, white tank tops, chino trousers, and black shoes.

They are lightly armed with pistols and baseball bats.


  • The term "Cholo" in Spanish, especially in Mexico's north and center areas, is commonly used as the word for "street gangster" in English.
  • The Cholos are always openly hostile to Victor and his Gang even before you blow up their factory; this is the result of the mission O, Brothel, Where Art Thou?.
  • The Cholos don't have any affiliations with any other gang, they only have enemies.
