The Cholos are a Mexican gang in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. They are based in the Little Haiti district of Vice City. The leader is unknown and they are involved in a turf war with the Cubans/Los Cabrones, Marty's Gang 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 even 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 completely wiped out, and as of 1986, the Haitians are in control of Little Haiti.

The Cholos wear light-blue bandanas, white tank tops, chino trousers, and black shoes.


The term "Cholo" in Spanish means "Mutt" (mixed-breed dog), but is also Chicano slang for a "homeboy" or "gangster".
