East Los Santos is a large district located in eastern Los Santos, hence the name. It consists of many smaller sub-districts and neighbourhoods. East Los Santos is bordered by Mirror Park to the north, South Los Santos to the west and southwest, the Port of Los Santos to the south, and the Palomino Highlands to the east. East Los Santos sits at the edge of the Los Santos metropolitan area, and meets the border of urban and rural.

Character

East Los Santos is a primarily Latino district, containing immigrants from all over Latin America, including Mexicans, Salvadorans, and Dominicans. East Los Santos used to be dedicated towards industry and hard labour, but in recent years, gentrification has gotten rid of the large factories. Throughout the area, there are many rundown workshops, factories, and warehouses that have been converted into garages or homes. However, the power plants and factories near the Port of Los Santos are still running and provide power for the city.

Despite the recent gentrification and installment of residential homes, there is still a large gang presence in the area, mostly with the Los Santos Vagos and the Varrios Los Aztecas. The crime mostly happens in the darker, more isolated areas of East LS, especially the abandoned industrial workhouses.
