Las Colinas is a large district located in the northeast of Los Santos in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It is bordered by Glen Park to the southwest, Jefferson, East Los Santos, Los Flores and East Beach to the south and Red County to the north.
The district is a stronghold for the Los Santos Vagos gang. Las Colinas is largely residential, working-class and with a high crime rate, and neighbors other Vagos and Ballas territories, specifically Los Flores, East Beach, Glen Park, Jefferson and East Los Santos. It is a mostly raised district which contains steep downhills and uphills along with winding roads and alleyways. It is also the longest neighbourhood in the city.
Las Colinas is predominantly Mexican/Hispanic, and contains various small, single-family houses, apartments, small stores, a trailer park and a high-rise building in the east, just across the highway from the beach. The western district doesn't seem to resemble any real-life locations and it looks like the neighborhood is more based on a real-life Mexico-based neighborhood instead of a Los Angeles-based.
The eastern part appears to resemble real-life districts such as Glassell Park or Cypress Park, and contains more single family homes than the more urban western part. The district in its entirety highly resembles the Pico Aliso neighborhood in East Los Angeles.
Events of GTA San Andreas
Las Colinas does not feature much during the storyline. During one mission, Carl Johnson and OG Loc chase Freddy, a homosexual Vagos gangster, through parts of Las Colinas, mainly because he attacked OG Loc when he was still in prison.
