"A community with strong roots in the fishing and longshoring industry, La Puerta, like so many other proud blue-collar neighborhoods, survived unchanged for hundreds of years until it was infiltrated by hipsters who sneaked in disguised as them and started drinking in their dive bars."
GTAV digital manual

La Puerta is a small area located in southern Los SantosSan Andreas. It is bordered by the Los Santos International Airport in the south, Vespucci on the west, Davis to the east, and Little Seoul to the north. La Puerta is also home to the famous Maze Bank Arena.

Character

La Puerta was primarily an industrial area, characterised by run-down buildings and stores. There are several warehouses located towards the northern side of La Puerta; these warehouses serve little function anymore and are just a centre for gang activity. The southern end of La Puerta is much more crowded because of the presence of the Maze Bank Arena and the highways that lead to the city airport.

Due to its position, drivers going out of the Los Santos International Airport grounds will pass through La Puerta first before venturing to the rest of the city.

Influence

La Puerta is mostly based on San Pedro, the port district of Los Angeles however the area also contains the Maze Bank Arena who's real life equivalent is located in Inglewood/South Los Angeles. In game La Puerta is adjacent to the separate area of Port of Los Santos which in real life is incorporated into San Pedro.
