You may be looking for Rico Garlik, a multiplayer character in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

Rico is a member of the Cuban gang in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Tommy Vercetti, looking to prove himself to Umberto Robina, has to participate in a boat challenge with Rico looking over him.[1] Later, Rico continues to help Vercetti and steals some of the Haitians cocaine and to ambush the Haitians,[2] but is seemingly killed when the Haitians blow up his boat. However, Rico is seen with the Cuban motorcade that invades the Haitian compound to destroy the Haitian Drug Factory.[3] Rico may have survived the explosion, he may be another character with the same name, or this may be an oversight by Rockstar.

Rico was voiced by Hunter Platin.


  • Rico shares the same character model as the Cuban gang members.
