What is this guide? The Cayo Perico Heist has been in the game since December 2020 and even in 2022 it is still the best way to make a lot of money quickly. There are different approaches that affect the time required.

In this guide, we’ll show you a method to steal the main objective, steal some extra valuables, and complete the finale in 7 minutes. That’ll bring you about 1.4 million GTA dollars and is one of the easiest exercises for solo players. This is how you easily earn a lot of money solo.

Keep in mind that there are many ways to rob El Rubio. We will show you one here that works very well for us and that we have successfully carried out more than 100 times. It works completely without triggering an alarm.

Preparations – Which missions are necessary?

Before you can start the heist, you need to go to the planning screen and make various preparations in your Kosatka. The planning on the screen is divided into « Information », « Equipment » and « Finals ».

Information: If you are playing the Heist for the first time, it is advisable to get to know the island completely and to find all the different infiltration points. For our guide, however, only the sewer is important as an infiltration point.

We also spied out the escape points, but only one is important here in the guide. We take the main dock. We all know the access points to the property – but we also rely on the sewers in the guide. There is a trick to spying on Cayo Perico. Keep in mind that you only have to do scouting for the various points once and then use them again and again in future heists.

You can spy out interesting things as you like. This is not important for this approach.

GTA Cayo Perico Guide Preparation
When it comes to equipment, you have to rely on certain content – for this you then complete individual errand missions that are self-explanatory.

Gear: The Kosatka and the Longfin are well suited as approach vehicles. We describe the approach with the kosatka in our guide, so we recommend you to take it too. In the end it’s personal taste though.

You absolutely need the cutting torch as equipment in order to open the lattice of the sewage tunnel and small locks in El Rubio’s treasure chamber. The fingerprint cloning device is necessary for you to get in (and out of) the basement quickly. You need the plasma cutter to steal the main objective. The cutting charge is optional and not necessary.

In the arsenal of weapons, we choose Aggressor. But that also depends on your taste. As a rule, you shoot down two to four guards. It is important that you can pull out the guns quickly and that they work with silencers.

Tip: You don’t have to buy the silencers. If you choose the nighttime approach, you will receive it automatically and save yourself the GTA$5,000.

With this approach, we don’t need sabotage missions at all.

Summary of the preparation:

  • Approach vehicle: Kosatka
  • Equipment: plasma cutter, fingerprint cloning machine, cutting torch
  • Armory: Aggressor
  • Sabotage: Nothing necessary

Cayo Perico finals – make your choice and start

After the preparations, you can start the job on your own on the planning screen. There is no need to buy armor for $500. But you can take it with you if you are unsure.


  • Approach vehicle: Kosatka
  • Infiltration Point: Sewage Tunnel
  • Access to the property: sewage tunnel
  • Vanishing Point: Main Dock
  • Time of day: night
  • Armory: Aggressor (no need to purchase silencers)
  • Hire support crew? no

Now you can start the job.

Launch Heist – Easy route for quick finale

Here’s how to proceed: After starting the heist, loyal Pavel will take you near the sewage tunnel in the submarine. You have to swim straight for about 30 seconds and then you will arrive at the grid marked in yellow. Head straight to the grate, then select the option to cut it open with the cutting torch. Cut all the bars marked in green and you’re in the tunnel.

Swim the tunnel to the end and then dive up. Confirm the prompt to enter El Rubio’s Manor. You don’t have to waste any time now for the optimal route.

The route to the loot: After you emerged from the tunnel, a short cut-scene runs. Immediately afterwards, turn around, run up the stairs and across the area as shown in the graphic. If you don’t dawdle, you can sprint all the way to the next point without being bothered by guards.

In front of the big stairs you stop briefly and wait until the guard goes to the right (first red X on the route graphic). Then you run up the stairs and left around the building. When you get to the back, sneak up and shoot the guard standing there (second red X on the route graphic). With a bit of luck, the guard will drop you a gate key that will become important later.
