El Corona

El Corona is a low-income, working-class residential district slightly to the south-east of the city centre of Los Santos. El Corona is the main strong hold for the Varrios Los Aztecas gang, and there are six known residents, Cesar Vialpando, Gal, Hazer, Sunny, Carl Johnson (who can purchase a safehouse in the area) and Kendl Johnson (who moves to El Corona to live with Cesar Vialpando). The area is based on El Sereno, however, the nearby projects resembles the Dana Strand Village housing project in Wilmington along with the rail line over pass with the multi-colored stairs which can be found in Watts.

El Corona can be described as a gang-ridden ghetto district with a high crime rate, as evidenced by the high-level gang presence and graffiti. The area primarily contains a large housing project known as the El Corona Village, some stores and businesses and numerous small, single-family houses. Surrounding El Corona are the districts of Little Mexico, Verdant Bluffs, Idlewood and Willowfield. Just south is the Los Santos International Airport. El Corona is a Mexican/Hispanic district and has a population of 235.

Events of GTA San Andreas

El Corona is a stronghold for the Varrios Los Aztecas and the home of Cesar Vialpando, and has (prior to the events of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas) been attacked by the Los Santos Vagos. Carl Johnson is first introduced to El Corona (in a mission) during the High Stakes, Low Rider mission, where Carl meets Cesar at his home. El Corona, after Cesar Vialpando leaves Los Santos, falls into the control of the Los Santos Vagos.

Upon his return, Cesar and his gang begin to kill Vagos gang members in El Corona, and eventually asks Carl Johnson for help. Carl, Cesar, Gal, Hazer and Sunny kill many Vagos gang members, and win the district back for the Varrios Los Aztecas. The area, already rioting following the acquittal of Frank Tenpenny, continues to riot until Tenpenny's death, at which time order is restored to El Corona and Los Santos.
