The Santa Blanca drug cartel was a dangerous criminal organization which controlled most of Bolivia in the near future. They were almost exterminated by Ghost Recon.

Leaders Edit

Connections Edit

Before the Mexican Cartel came to Bolivia, there were many other Bolivian Cartels and it was El Sueño who killed its leaders one by one and slowly took over Bolivia. Their connection with key politicians ended up them controlling most of Bolivia but before they got to control the cartel was at war with UNIDAD which engulfed the whole of Bolivia and in the end the government had to sign a secret peace treaty with the cartel saying, "If you stop killing our people, we will look the other way. "Since then the cartel grew with power spreading its influence across all of South America and soon tried to spread its influence to other countries."

Equipment and Personnel Edit

With the cartel growing with power and earning 2 billion dollars a week from its production and sale of cocaine the cartel modernized by buying top of the line weapons from the black market, Humvees and armored SUVs outfitted with swivel-mounted miniguns, APC's, along with helicopters like the Little Bird and Black Hawk

HistoryEdit

Santa Blanca was founded by El Sueño, a dangerous sicario who had a dream-hence the name El Sueño-of creating a narco-state. To accomplish this, Sueño came to Bolivia and formed the Santa Blanca Cartel in 2008. The citizens were given two options: "silver or lead" - work for Santa Blanca, or be killed.

Riflemen are the most common of Santa Blanca soldiers. They use cover whenever possible, moving between them to get the right shot. If a lieutenant is present, they follow and move with him. If you flee them or attack from afar, they may enter a vehicle and chase you down While mostly present in Santa Blanca camps, keep an eye out for them in the wild as they patrol the roads of Bolivia.

Heavy Gunners are well armored and fight with a big LMG. Their armored helmets can sometimes make them more resistant to headshots. They slowly progress toward the player, shooting long bursts that inflict a lot of damage. They discharge suppressive fire, forcing you to take cover while their comrades reposition and swarm your position.

The RebellionEdit

Pac Katari led a rebellion against the cartel. The rebellion has been growing since the beginning of Operation Kingslayer. This is because all of the work that the Ghost Team (Nomad) has done has been credited to The Rebellion to keep their presence unknown.

The cartel was infiltrated by the DEA agent Ricky Sandoval. After his cover was blown, the agent is killed and the US government initiates Operation Kingslayer to take down the cartel. A Ghost Recon led by Nomad is sent in and systematically works their way up to El Sueño.

Narco RoadEdit

In the Narco Road DLC, a parallel story to the main game, players take control of a Ghost infiltrator who joins one of the gangs inside the cartel in order to uncover the secretive head of their world-class smuggling operations.


Santa Blanca, therefore, becomes allies, and the new enemy becomes a rival gang.

Fallen GhostsEdit

The Fallen Ghosts DLC takes place after you have completed the main game. The cartel has mostly left or been killed by Los Extranjeros.
