Some people have E-mailed me wondering where the guide was after looking at 
this page and only seeing the distribution information. Please scroll down, the 
rest of the guide is here. You don't have to have me E-mail it to you. You also 
don't need permission to use the guide for your own personal use. Only to 
publish it or distribute it. For your personal use you can print it and view it 
all you want as long as you are not passing out copies. So please don't
E-mail me asking if it's okay for you to use the guide for personal use.

My E-mail backlog is huge right now, I'll try to answer E-mail as best I can, 
but most of you are not going to get quick answers. I apologize for this, but 
there is nothing I can do. If there are any kind people out there who feel they 
maybe can help answer questions about the pacakges, drop me an E-mail. I could 
use some help answering all these questions if anyone wants to give it a shot. 
Your name will appear at the top of the guide if you decide to help me with 

If you see this guide used anywhere but the sites listed below please let me 
know. I've had some problems with plagarism. Honestly I'm very upset about this 
and will probably never write another FAQ or Guide because of it.

If you want, feel free to E-mail ksheth87@hotmail.com and let him know what 
you think about how he was (and still is) taking credit for other people's 
work on websites like neoseeker.com. Better yet go to neoseeker.com and sign 
his guestbook. His account name is ksheth.

Or head over to ukwalkthroughs.com and let the webmasters 
(logs@specialreserve.net) know what you think about Phychomanix and the guides 
that he has published in his name. This guide and others on gamefaqs.com are 
there. If anyone lives in the UK and can call their office number for me that 
would be great. I can't afford the call. (0870 725 9999 is their number.)

Yet another site is using my guide without my permission, but at least they are 
giving me credit. The site is cheatcc.com. Feel free to let them know what you 
think about that.

I've found yet another one thanks to Little_Jewell(Thank You!). It's www.
goldfiles.com. They can be reached at webmaster@goldfiles.com, if you are so 
incliened to E-mail them.

Oh, and if you are looking for a good all around FAQ, I would go with the one
by AggroSk8er. Which can be found here:


This FAQ may only be posted/distributed in its original format AND with my
permission. My E-mail address is above. To ask permission simply send me an 
E-mail. You can also feel free to address any other concerns with me at that

Important Notes

Please read this entire section before looking for any packages.

I'll be using the same package numbers as the official guide from Brady. I'll 
also be using locations like Ammunation as a start point. Get to know the map 
a little bit (the map screen really) before starting your search. It's not 
required, but it helps.

This guide contains some very minor mission spoilers, such as locations that 
are pivotal to some missions. I've only put these in where I thought it might 
help you to find the packages, and I've tried not to actually reveal anything 
about the plot at any point.

Following this, or any other, packages guide is a great way to get familiar 
with Vice City. It's a nice hidden benefit of package hunting. Having said 
that you should also note that package hunting in Vice City is more difficult 
than in GTAIII. You could play through most of the game, including the final
mission, and not run into a single package.

Also, if you find a way to get to any of these packages that I overlooked, let 
me know and I'll post it and give you credit for the find.

Oh, and does anyone else think it's very cool that the packages all look like 
the Maltese falcon?

New Note: You can get all of these packages from the start of the game, without
doing even one mission. However, I suggest waiting until you unlock the
second isalnd to start looking for packages. There are several ways to get into 
the second island from the beginning, but they are beyond the scope of this 
guide. To clarify, you can't get some of the packages I've listed below without 
unlocking the second island unless you know the sneaky ways of getting there. 
Even package #1 can't be gotten without unlocking the second isalnd without 
using alternate tactics. Again, these tactics are beyond the scope of my guide.

Here are the rewards you get from collecting the packages.

10  Body Armor
20  Chainsaw
30  Python
40  Flame-thrower
50  Laser Scope Sniper Rifle
60  Minigun
70  Rocket Launcher
80  Sea Sparrow
90  Rhino
100 Hunter & $100,000

Since so many people ask about it, and it's been spoiled already a million 
times over, I'm going to include info on where to find the rewards.

1-7 are easy. They appear in three locations.
 1. Your Ocean View apartment.
 2. The Diaz mansion.
 3. On top of the Hymen Condos.
    Special note for this location. Buy it AFTER you get a reward, or the
    reward will not appear here.

    Thanks to all who corrected me on this, the above used to say "before" you
    got the reward, which was incorrect.

Sea Sparrow: Behind the Diaz mansion. NOT ON TOP. Yes, there is a maverik on 
top, but no Sea Sparrow.

Rhino: At the air force base.

Hunter: At the air force base.

Both the Rhino and Hunter can be a pain because the guys at the air force base 
will shoot at you. There are plenty of ways to rush in there and grab the 
vehicle of your choice, but the best thing to do is use the cop uniform which 
is available after "copland." While wearing the uniform they do not pay any 
attention to you. I always seem to get a wanted level of one when I get in the 
Hunter though, even with the cop uniform.


Thanks to the great work of Rob T. I now am hosting the pictures of all of the
hidden packages here: http://bradsnet.net/hp

Try not to bombard this site if possible. If traffic gets too heavy I'll have
to take it down but I'm pretty sure it will be fine.

The Packages

Ocean Beach
The south area of the first island, the lighthouse is in this area so it's
pretty easy to find.

(Note that in the Brady guide the pictures for these first two packages are 

1. First off, you may be able to skip ahead a bit, so read ahead. Starting 
from Ammunation in the Ocean Beach Area head south. When you reach the T 
intersection make a right turn. You will be on a street that curves back 
north. If you pass a fountain when you make this right turn you are in the 
right area. On the left you should see a dock. (At one point during the 
game you pick up missions here, but I'm making the assumption some of you 
have not gotten here yet.) You should be able to pick up a boat here. Don't 
try to go through the locked gate. Anyhow, once you have a boat head west 
out of the docks. As soon as you clear the docks head DIRECTLY south. You 
should see three islands on your map. Head for the southwest island. It's 
pretty easy to identify because there is a rampage on it. Just north of the 
Rampage is package #1.

2. Follow the same directions as package #1 to get to the area where there are 
three islands. Point yourself northeast and you should see a large collection 
of rocks. I suggest pulling into the rocks from the east (heading west). 
Package #2 is on top of these rocks.

A nifty point of interest in this area is the large sunken ship off the coast. 
According to hannibal106th the side of the ship says Chartering Libertine
Lines. Same as one of the ships on the dock.

3. Finally, back to land. Go to Ammunation in Ocean Beach. Head directly south 
(past the fountain), through the trees and bushes, and you should see a 
sidewalk. On your right there is a house facing the water. Package #3 is 
next to the steps.

4. Start from your Ocean View save point. (Save Opportunity.) Head South. On
your left you should see a lighthouse. It's very easy to spot. Just head
directly towards the lighthouse (don't fall in the water). The 4th package is 
on the lighthouse steps.

A another nifty point of interest for you. You can enter and climb to the top 
of the lighthouse... great view!

5. Go to Ammunation in Ocean Beach. Head South, make a right at the T 
intersection (past the fountain) and head to the docks on the left. Just 
southeast from the locked gate and you will find an underground car park. 
You will find package #5 in a corner on the north side of this car park.

6. Go to Ammunation in Ocean Beach. Head north. On the second main road you 
come across you should see a large red wall. Keep going north past this wall. 
Keep left, and you should see a hospital. Enter the hospital parking lot. 
Go around the hospital towards it's south side. You should see a white wall 
on your left, and the hospital wall on your right. You should emerge in a 
small grassy area. To the south in this area you should see a white building. 
Go around the back of this building and you will find package #6. (There is a 
rampage near the front of this building, be sure not to fall off the ledge 
where the rampage is.)

7. Go to Ammunation in Ocean Beach. Head north all the way to the waters edge.
Then turn left(West). As you head toward the bridge you will see a small 
building on the right(North). There is a small walkway that leads around this 
building. Follow it and it will lead you under the bridge, where you will find 
package #7.

8. Before you start this go find a PCJ 600. Go to Ammunation in Ocean Beach.
Head north. Eventually you should see the mall on your right hand side. It's 
got a red sign. Make a right, you should see a gas station on the right hand 
side. Make a left at the T intersection. The second building on the right is 
the one with the package, but it's on top of the building. To get up top get 
yourself a PCJ 600. Go up the spiral parking lot across from this building.
What you have to do is position yourself in the southwest part of the top 
level, facing east. Then just punch it. You should be able to jump over to 
the building next to the one we need to get on top of. Hope you still have 
your bike, because now you need to jump over to the building using one of the 
three ramps on top of this building. There you have it, package #8. A note 
of interest in this area is that there are a lot of nice ramps.

That's it for Ocean Beach.

Washington Beach

9. Get yourself back to the spiral parking lot entrance from the last package 
instructions. To the east you should see a building with a little circle logo
on it, it's purple and green and says GGs. North of this building is a very 
tall pink building. That is where you need to be. Get to the steps of this 
building and just head around the back from either way. Near the pool, right 
next to some armor, is package #9. There is also an Ingram back there.

10. Before you start this go find a PCJ 600. Get back to your hotel. Head
North and look at the names of the hotels on your left. Stop when you 
find the colon hotel. It's got a large blue sign shaped like an upside down 
T. Go around back and you should see a police bribe in an alley. On the south 
end of this alley is a staircase. What you have to do is use this staircase 
as a ramp to jump to the building across the street. Start from the police 
bribe and punch it towards the staircase, you have to hit it a little to the 
right to make the building. Once you get across package #10 is on the south 
side of the roof.

Congrats, Body armor.

11. Go to the lawyer's office. It's northwest from your hotel, and across the 
street from a place that you can buy as a save point. Go up the stairs to the 
icon for the save point place, and then go around back to the left hand side. 
Package #11.

12. From the lawyer's office head north. You should see a bridge up ahead.
Package #12 is on the right hand side of the bridge. It's hidden behind the 
bridge support on the right, as you get close you should see it's halo.

13. Get a heli. For more information on how to do so please see my section 
entitled "Where can I find a helicopter?" at the bottom of this document. 
This package requires a helicopter to reach. Anyhow, package #13 is on a the 
roof of a blue and white building just south of the police department in the 
washington beach area. Another good point of reference is Starfish Island,
it's almost directly east of the bridge leading off of the island. Using the 
helicopter makes getting a lot of these packages easier, of course, but I'm 
not going to use it exclusively. I'm sure if you want to use the heli you can 
use my directions to find the packages.

14. Head to the beach. This is one of the easiest packages. It's on the steps 
of a hut almost directly east from the police station. If all else fails just 
check all the huts.

15. Start from the hotel save point. Head directly north. Keep an eye on the 
signs on your left, you are looking for the Moonlite Hotel. Once you pass it
take the next left. If you see a staircase on your right you are probably in
the right place. Straight ahead of you is the police station. (Another easy
way to get here is to just get busted.) Go inside. DON'T PULL A GUN IN HERE! 
Walk up to the sign that says "no civilians past this point." Don't go in 
just yet. Make sure you are well rested. If you ran in here just stop to 
catch your breath, you are gonna need the running juice. I came in here with 
full health and body armor and I nabbed the package, for the first time, at 
30 health. Anyhow, run forward and you should see stairs leading up on your 
right. Take the stairs and head straight. The package is in the room directly 
ahead of the stairs. While you are doing this cops will be constantly 
shooting at you. Go fast and you can even make it out alive. :-)

SPOILER! It has been brought to my attention (thanks Wil) that at some point
in the game you can get a cop uniform and avoid being shot at in here.

16. Get to the "bunch of tools" store that is east of Starfish Island. If you 
look at your pause map it's the one that's pretty much in the middle of the 
island. Across the street to the west there is a small set of stairs, go up 
them. On your left you should see the most gaudy house ever. It's pink and
white with peach trim. It's also got a moat. Just circle the house. The 
package is in a corner where a white wall meets a pink wall.

17. Get to the same "bunch of tools" from the last package and head up the
same steps, but this time just head towards the back wall. There is a set of 
open pool showers against the back wall. The package is in the orange shower.

18. Head to the bridge that leads to Starfish Island. It's just north of the 
showers from the last package. Head around the bridge to the right, and you 
will find this package under the bridge.

That's it for Washington Beach.

Vice Point
Vice Point is basically the north half of the first island. It's a large area 
with a lot of packages. There are more packages in this area then any other. 
Ready? Let's go.

19. Get to the "bunch of tools" store that is east of Starfish Island. The 
same one from package #16. Head out of the east exist and head north. Keep a 
close eye on your left hand side and you should see the Spand Express 
Shipping Company (Spand Express a.k.a. Spand-Ex). The package is behind the 
building. This is also the location of the 'Riot' mission.

20. Just north of the Spand-Ex shipping company is a construction site.
(Where Avery appears). Walk up the wooden planks and get to the third floor
of the site. There is an awkward I-beam sticking out to the west. The package 
is at the end of this beam.

Congrats! Chainsaw!

21. Across from the building site (Avery's) from the last package is a row of
white houses. Behind these houses is a small dock. This package is on the end 
of this very short dock.

22. Read this whole description before doing anything. Head north from your
ocean view save point. When you reach the curve to the left, follow it and 
then make a right as soon as you can (on to a street). Follow the street 
north and you should run right into the Malibu club. Get to know this location.
 Look at where it is on your map. Get to know what it looks like from above. 
You know what's coming. Get a helicopter. The building you want is across the 
street from the Malibu. You have to land IN the pool, but the package is on 
the ledge up the stairs from the pool. You are going to want to keep the 
helicopter around for package 24. There is a great place to park it behind 
the Malibu while you get the next package.

23. This one is easy. It's right behind the Malibu, in the parking lot. Right 
on the other side of the gate.

24. Get a helicopter. Get to the Malibu. Directly north of the Malibu is 
another building with a pool on top. It is pretty hard to land the helicopter 
there, so watch out. Anyhow, the package is in a corner behind a palm tree.

25. Get back to the Malibu. Head directly east, out to the beach. Once you get
to the beach head north. On your left you should see a set of stairs leading 
to a pool. The package is in the northwest corner of the pool area.

I recommend picking up the next three packages at the same time. They are very 

26. Find the Malibu. Head north and take the first left. On your right is a 
pizza joint. Inside you will find package #26.

27. East of the pizza joint from #26 is a white multi-level apartment 
building. This package is behind the stairs.

28. Head north from the pizza joint. On your left is a strip mall. You can 
enter one of the stores. This package is behind the counter.

29. Find the bridge from the first island to the golf island. It's northwest 
of the Malibu. Right before the bridge on the east side there is a house. It's
on the north side of the street. Go up onto the driveway straight towards the 
narrow ramp and just walk off of it. That should land you next to two small 
pools. Head west and then south to find this package. This house is also 
involved in a mission.

30. Another place from a mission. From the bridge leading to golf island head 
east. Keep left. Pass the first street on your left and the next thing you 
should see is an apartment building. If you climb the stairs you should find 
an open window. Get to the roof. The two flights of stairs to get there are 
pretty easy to find. On the roof head north and jump off down onto the next 
roof. This package is in the south area of this roof, right where you jumped 
down. (It's very easy to miss when you come up here for the 'chase' mission.)

Congrats! Python!

31. Find the north pay and spray on the first island. Just to the south is a 
white apartment building area with an arched entrance. It's a maze of 
backyards back here. From the arched entrance go into the second yard on 
your left. The package is in the northwest corner of this yard, behind a 
palm tree.

The next two packages should be gotten together. They are very close.

32. Find the west entrance of the North Point mall. It's near the bridge to 
prawn island. Exit the mall and follow the road south. First you will go 
under a bridge, then on your left you will see a walled off building with
very wide stairs leading to it's entrance. Head up the steps and then head 
towards the southwest. This package is on the very "tip" of the compound.

33. Continue to explore the compound from #32. Behind this hotel is a pool. 
The next package is on the top diving board.

34. Find the bridge to prawn island. This package is hidden behind one of 
the supports on the south side right next to the waters edge. A waterfront 
sidewalk basically 'ends' at this package.

35. Back to the beach. On the very north side of the beach is a dirt track 
for RCs. This package is behind the jocksport sign that is on the
east side of the track. If all else fails just drive around the track and 
check every jocksport sign.

36. Find the north point mall. It's east of the bridge to prawn island. On 
the east side of the mall there is a large orange apartment building. Climb 
the steps are head around back. This package is in the corner by one of the 
back entrances to this building.

I suggest getting the next three packages at the same time. They are pretty 

37. Find the north point mall again. There are two north entrances to the 
mall. This package is in between these entrances.

38. Find the north point mall again. This time, go inside. (Note of interest, 
you can get a motorcycle into the mall... joy!) This package is on the second 
floor, in the east most part of the mall in front of a store with sale signs 
on the windows.

39. Near the south end of the mall is a store called the gash (ha!) and 
inside you will find this package. It's above the escalators that are inside 
the store. The windows near the top are breakable, making this package easy 
to get.

40. Find the west entrance of the north point mall. Just north of it is a 
multi-story car park. Head inside. This package is on the ground floor, 
just south of the entrance.

Congrats, you now have the flame thrower pickup (joy!) and you are also done 
with vice point, which is the largest collection of packages by far. You still 
have a long way to go though. On to...

Prawn Island
It's the north island in between the mainland and first island.

41. Head to the southernmost tip of prawn island. You should be able to find 
the entrance to the Interglobal Film Studio. Head east and follow the curve 
north. Just past the police bribe there is an entrance to an alley. Go in and 
the package is at the end of the alley.

Get the next two packages at the same time, as they require you to be in the 
film studio, which if you have not purchased, will require a heli.

42. The next package is in the film studio mentioned in 41. I don't know of 
any other way of getting in before you can buy it, so just use a helicopter
(See the "Where can I find a helicopter?" section at the bottom). The package 
is on top of a blue building. Kitty corner from studio D. If you took the heli 
in here, don't get off the roof without it. You can only get out using the 
heli at this point, so don't get yourself stuck.

It's been pointed out to me that you are not stuck if you leave the heli in the 
lot. It seems there are some steps in the southeast corner that can be jumped 
over. Thanks Wade!

It's been pointed out that you can also use a packer to get out of the studio. 
There is one inside that you can pull up to the gate, and then jump it using a 
patriot. Thanks Dustcart!

It's also been pointed out to me that you can enter this area through a series 
of ramps on top of nearby buildings. Thanks Matthew C!

43. This package is inside studio C. The letter C is split in half on the 
doorway. The set in this studio will eventually change. If it's empty you 
can't miss the package. If it's a bathroom, check the stalls.

This studio is really interesting. One set is apparently where the moon 
landing was filmed(I guess it WAS faked). Another section of the back lot 
looks like part of liberty city! Explore this place. It's strange.

44. On prawn island there are two green houses. This package is on the back 
porch of the house to the west.

45. Across from the green house from #44 there is a yellow house (this one is 
part of a mission). Go in and get upstairs. Go around to the east balcony and 
walk off the edge. Don't jump, you will overshoot. This one may take a few 
tries. Basically you want to fall into the room below. Once inside the package 
is obvious.

Apparently you can also jump over the wall into this room. It's a little
tricky, but possible. Thanks Talen!

I've also been told that this house is not open until you finish the mission 
involving this house. Thanks Dustcart!

Update: Hmm, another person told me it was open without finishing the mission. 
I'm not sure what the deal is here. I believe both people honestly, so maybe
it is really a time of day thing or some other factor. Thanks Homer!

Now off to...

Leaf Links
It's the golf course in the middle of Vice City. On an island all it's own.

All these packages should be gotten at the same time in my opinion. Followed 
by an immediate save.

46. This package is under the bridge leading to Leaf Links. To get under the 
bridge you need to enter the course, then go south from the tennis courts.

47. At the north end of the course is a driving range. This package is in one 
of the stalls on the ground floor.

48. Just west of the clubhouse is an S-curved road. Follow the road to the
end and then head west. The package is in a sand trap that looks like a crater.

49. In the middle of the south half of the course (under the bridge to get 
there) is a large water hazard. This package is on the island in that water 

50. Further south there is a small island with one golf hole on it. The next 
package is on the narrow bridge leading to this island.

Congrats! Laser Scope, and on to... 

Starfish Island
The largest house on this island is the Diaz mansion. I'm going to use that as 
a reference point a lot.

51. On the east side of the Diaz mansion is a pool. Go down the stairs to the
east of this pool. This package is next to these stairs on the south side.

52. Now from the Diaz mansion head to the pool on the west side. Drop off the
ledge to next to the pink wall. This package is in the south area of this pool.

53. In the middle of the island are three houses. Behind the west house you 
will find a pool that looks like the Rockstar logo from above (Cool!) The pool
contains a flamethrower (COOL!) and if you up the stairs behind the house you 
will find package #53 among the picnic tables.

54. Now head to the east house in the middle of the island. There is a pool on 
the south side of the lot, the Jacuzzi contains this package. The gate to this 
house is closed, so just jump the low fence.

55. Now head to the northeastern most house on this island. It's got a garage 
with a basketball net and a flag next to the door. The package is right on 
the doorstep.

Another island finished and off to the mainland.


56. Find the entrance to the Hyman Memorial Stadium. It's pretty easy. It's
the large circular peninsula west of the downtown area. I'll be using this 
as a reference point in future items as well. Anyhow, just north of the 
entrance is a dirt road. Follow it. It should take you to an area where you 
can see a dirt track for motor cycles in front of you. Keep left and go 
around the track. Stay next to the wall on your left. Follow that wall and 
soon you should be heading south. Keep an eye on the buildings on the right,
in a small nook you should find this package. I recommend using the r2 button 
once you turn south, you should see the package pretty easy if you do this.

57. Head back to the stadium. Facing away from the sign there are two roads 
leading away on your map. (Hey, est. 1979... that's when I was born. *shiver*)
Get on the north road. Make the second right. You should be facing the Mars 
Cafe. Head towards it and follow the curve to the left. Keep going straight 
but pay attention to the buildings on your right. In front of one building 
you should see a sign with letters as tall as you saying "V.A.J. Finance." 
There is a large opening to the west of this sign with a statue that kind of 
looks like a flame. The package is right in the middle of this statue. In 
order to get up there I pulled a car alongside the platform and jumped on 
the hood, then the platform. There are other ways but I think that is easiest.

It has been brought to my attention that you can jump onto the ledge, but you 
just have to be a few feet away when you do it. Thanks A L!

58. Find the Mars Cafe, instructions to get there are in #57. Just to the 
northwest should be two traffic blockers (orange and white stripes). Head 
between these (note there is a hideout on the right) to the small grassy 
area, then turn around. You should see the grass leads into a small hole. 
This leads to a dead end that contains this package.

59. Back to the stadium. To the south of the entrance you should see a road 
with the word "parking" on it and an arrow. Follow the arrow. Don't follow all
the arrows though, you end up at the entrance. Anyhow, at the very back of the
stadium you will find this package. It's next to one of the signs that says 
"<-- Parking."

60. Back to the Entrance of the stadium. Take the south road of the two that 
leads east, and when you reach the T intersection make a right. Make the first
left you find and on your right should be the hospital (Schuman). You could 
also just get wasted in the general area to find it. Anyhow, to the east of 
the sign there is a parking lot. Go down the ramp and the package is on your 

Congrats! Minigun!

61. Read this whole description before doing anything. You will need a Heli. 
Back to the V.A.J. building from #57. Just South of it is your target. It's
the building with the satellite dishes on top. Now, get a heli(See the "Where
can I find a helicopter?" section below) and land on the building. This package 
is next to the helipad. In order to get to the package you have to jump off of 
the helipad to the right of the ramp.

Update: I've had a lot of feedback on #61. The package is hard to spot, so let 
me clarify my directions. The package is really next to the helipad, but it's 
pretty high up. If you walk down the first ramp (after landing on the helipad) 
then walk down the next, the package should be above and ahead of you. If you 
walk all the way to the base of the ramp it's above you. That is why you have 
to jump off the helipad to get this one. Hope that helps!

Note: It has come to my attention that there is a street level entrance to the
building for #61. It is right next to the bridge that takes you from the
mainland to prawn island. It's the VCN building on the north side of the street
just after the bridge. The entrance is actually tucked behind the bridge a bit.

62. Back to the stadium entrance. Take either road east and make the first 
right. The road will eventually curve left. Keep following it to the end. 
On your left is an office building. Make a left and keep your eye on the
office building(using l2 is a good idea). As you continue you should notice 
a stair case on your left. Go up and continue to the next staircase, go up
again and you should see a place you can enter on your left. Go on inside. 
On the south wall are three desks. Behind them you will find this package.

That's it for downtown. 

Little Haiti
This area is just south of downtown.

63. As usual I'm going to use the first package in this area to establish a 
good starting point for rest of them. Start from the stadium entrance. 
(See #56) Take either of the two east roads and make the first right you 
come to. Take it all the way south and follow the curve to the left. At 
the end of this road make a right. Keep right as you travel south and you 
should pass a sign for the Moist Palms Hotel. This is our first starting 
point. Just north of this sign is a driveway. Follow it, and you should 
find a parking lot. Keep right and follow the grass to find a large grassy 
area in the back. You should see a ramp to the south. This package is right 
behind the ramp. The ramp has a yellow sign on it, if that helps.

These next three are very close, I suggest getting them at the same time.

64. Get back to the sign for the Moist Palms from #63. Head south. Take the
first right, and when this street starts to curve you should be able to see 
the big "Phil's Place" sign. Basically you need to get behind this area. 
Here is how. Northeast of the entrance to Phil’s place there is an alley that 
points north. Enter this alley and then turn left at the opening. West of 
this alley is where you will find this package. It's near the water's edge.

65. Head back inside Phil's place (See #64). There is a shack containing this 
package. It's not the one next to the RV, it's the one next to that one. 
It's the same color as the walls in this area.

66. As you exit Phil's place (see #64 & #65). You should see a building with
red trim. There is an alley just to the south of this building. Enter it, 
as soon as you can turn right. Right ahead of you should be a set of stairs. 
Go down them to find this package.

67. I suggest getting a bike, a Sanchez works best. Back to the Moist Palms. 
Head south. Take the first right. On the south side of this street is an 
alley with a ramp. You need (of course) to jump the ramp and get onto the 
building across from it. Now you need to get over to the roof just east of 
your current position. It's easy to jump that gap on foot, or over the narrow 
part with a Sanchez. Once you get across you should see this package in a pit 
in the middle of the roof.

68. Get back to the entrance to Phil's place. (See #64) Just south of that 
entrance is a large yellow building that is Kaufman Cabs. Behind Kaufman Cabs 
there are several white houses. On the north stairs of the southwestern most 
house is package #68.

69. Get back to the entrance to Phil's place. (See #64) Head South, past 
Kaufman Cabs, past the zigzag in the road, and you should see a pizza joint 
on your left. Just south of the pizza joint is Funeraria Romero. To the south 
of this store is a small alley. You will find this package in over one of the 
four graves back here. It's a small area and the package is pretty obvious.

I suggest getting the next two packages at the same time.

70. Back to Phil's place. Head south past kaufman cabs, past the zigzag, 
past the place where you got the last package, and follow the road even and 
just before it makes a sharp turn to the east take the curved road to the 
west. Make the first possible turn left into an alley and then make the first 
possible turn left. You should be at a dead end with some stairs. Climb the 
stairs and the package is in the middle of the generators on the right.

Congrats, Rocket Launcher!

71. Just south of the white building from #70 is a yellow building. This is
the print works. I suggest jumping down into the lot of the print works from 
the roof of the white building. It doesn't take much health. Head south of 
the print works and then east on the road. You should see a wooden fence on 
your left. Follow the fence around to the entrance, which faces east. This
package is near the base of the billboard inside this area.

Little Havana

I suggest getting the next two at the same time.

72. From Phil's Place head south past the pizza joint again. Before the
road turns sharply left, take a right. Follow this road until it ends it a 
T intersection. On your right is the coin laundry. This package is inside.

73. Head east from the laundry and use R2 to look right. You should see a for
sale sign on a teal building. This package is on the top of the stairs.

74. Back to the laundry from #72. Head east and make the first right. You 
should now be heading south. Continue to the end. At the T intersection make 
a right. On your left you should see a diner that you can enter. Across the 
street from the diner (Robina's) is an alley heading north. Enter the alley 
and go through the gap on your right. This package is near some trash bags 
in this area.

75. Back to the laundry from #72. Head east and make the first right. You 
should now be heading south. Continue to the end. At the T intersection you
should notice a wall directly ahead. Go around it and go through the gap on 
the west side of this area. Beyond is a staircase. Climb up and then jump 
down to the rooftop north of you. Climb another set of stairs and then go 
to the northeast corner of this rooftop. Jump onto the walkway in front of 
the billboard here to get package #75. (And a nice new sniper rifle.)

76. From the laundry in #72 head east. Follow the curve south. Continue on 
to the end. At the T intersection make a left. Continue on to the end. On the 
corner just north of you is a donut shop. (Yes, cops do like to hang out 
here, at least it seems that way to me.) This package is behind the counter.

77. From the donut shop in #76 head west until the road turns north. On the 
south side of the street is a building with a red awning. Go around back and 
climb the stairs (which should be in plain view from the front of the 
building). On the top you will find a rampage, and in the southwest corner, 
package #77.

78. From the donut shop in #76 head west and make the first left. Follow this 
road and watch your left hand side. When you see a series of flags you know 
you are in the right place. Right behind the flags is the auto showroom. 
Enter from the south side and go up the ramp to the second floor. Package 
#78 is in a corner.

Vice Port
The southern tip of the mainland area.

Read ahead for the next two. You can get them at the same time if you want.

79. From the donut shop in #76 head west and make the first left. Follow this 
road and notice the large plant to your right. The first chance you get after 
seeing the plant make a right. follow the road around and you will be going 
north. The gate into this area is on your right. Bust in and then use pretty 
much any car to jump the ramp here to get inside the plant. You should be 
able to find the 4 large tanks pretty easy. This package is right in the 
middle of them, behind a blue pipe.

80. From the donut shop in #76 head west and make the first left. Follow 
this road and make the first right. Follow this road as it curves north. 
Bust into the parking lot on the right. The package is in-between a red and 
a blue trailer in this lot. Note that this is the same lot you pass through 
on the way to the tankers from the last package.

I've been informed by several people that this package is between a yellow and 
a blue trailer, not a red and blue. Maybe it's the way the light hit it, but 
for me it looked red. There are really too many people to credit for this one, 
so thanks all!

Congrats! Sea Sparrow!

81. From the donut shop in #76 head west and make the first left. Follow 
this road and make the first left. Make a right at the T intersection 
(should be facing the water's edge before you make this turn). Hold R2 
and you should be able to see as you pass a grassy area, then a parking 
lot, then a grassy area, and so forth. This package is in the 4th
parking lot you come to.

82. From the donut shop in #76 head west and make the first left. Follow 
this road and make the first left. Make a right at the T intersection 
(should be facing the water's edge before you make this turn). If you keep 
left on this road you should enter the docks area. There is a ship to your 
left as you enter. Board it. This package is tucked away in a corner on the
east side of the ship. It's best to board from the north ramp and head south, 
then make the first left you see. Then head to the east rail and then just 
head south.

83. Head south from the ship in #82. Just follow the road. Keep right but 
don't turn. Follow the road and soon you should be heading north. Once this 
happens watch your right side. You should see a sign for the Vice City Port 
Authority. The package is right under that sign. Go east and then around the 
wall, and grab it.

Apparently there is a second sign further north of this one. Once you are 
heading north if you make the first right, the sign is on your left.

Also, if it helps, this sign is on the southwest corner of the port authority 
lot. Thanks to all who E-mailed me about this!

84. Get a helicopter. (See the "Where can I find a helicopter?" section at 
the bottom of this document.) Your target is the southwest ship in the dock. 
Make sure to land it such a way that you can get off the ship using the heli. 
If you get stuck here you pretty much have to kill yourself in order to 
leave. The package is in front of a metal door.

85. From the donut shop in #76 head west and make the first left. Follow 
this road and make the first right. Follow this road (bear left at the fork)
and you should eventually see a large hangar on the left with a small door.
Head inside and make a hard left. You should be facing a little corner office. 
Inside you will find package #85.

86. Head back to the dock right in front of the ship from #84. Jump onto 
the ledge right on the waters edge that is slightly raised above the ground
and walk on it west. You should come to a large open area. I mean, this
area is huge. Package #86 is in the far northwest corner of the area.

Only one area left to go... excited?

Escobar International Airport

I recommend getting all the packages from here on in one go. They are all 
pretty close together and travel time is pretty short with a helicopter. 
You need one for many of the packages and I just think it's better to keep 
it around rather than go get a new one. It's all a matter of personal 
preference though, there are always tons of ways to accomplish anything
in this game.

87. Just west of the hangar where package #85 was found is the cargo
terminal of the airport. This package is on the roof, and there is no easy 
way up there. So get yourself a helicopter. (See the "Where can I find a 
helicopter?" section at the bottom of this document.) There appears to be 
a way to jump up to this building as there are many ramps to the west, it
also seems like you might need a bike to pull this off. If you try this and 
it works for you please let me know. I recommend keeping the helicopter for 
the next several packages.

I've been informed by several people now that jumping up to get package #87 is 
possible with a bike. Too many E-mails about this to credit one person really, 
so thank you all!

88. If you still have the helicopter from #87 then great, land on the 
southernmost helipad and pick up this package. You can easily get here 
without the helicopter though. From the airport entrance just head south. 
There are not a lot of landmarks here to guide you by, but the pads are easy 
to spot. Remember, it's the southernmost helipad.

Wow, I've had a lot of mail on this one. First thing's first, when I say the 
southernmost helipad, I mean in the entire airport area. There are 2 other 
helipads, but only one of them is contained within the main gate of the airport.
Also, this package is right in the middle of the H. One more thing, this 
package is one that people who have used cheats have reported to disappear. It 
seems that this package is a prime target for that issue.

89. You don't need a helicopter for this one, but if you still have it from 
the last package, it makes this much easier. There are three runways at the 
airport. Two of them run north-south, and one runs northeast-southwest. Head 
to the northeast end of the northeast-southwest runway. There are two hangars 
to the southeast of this runway. The southwestern most of these two has this
package on the roof. If that seems too complicated, stand at the building 
entrance to the cargo terminal from #87. This hangar is visible to your left
if you are looking north. You could use a vehicle to jump onto this hangar,
but again a helicopter is MUCH more easy.

90. Jutting out of the main terminal, towards the south, are two large 
loading bridges. Those are the white 'arms' they use to put you on the plane. 
This package is on the very tip of the east extension, which can easily be 
reached by helicopter. There is another way to get up here though. You could 
find a packer, which is basically a large portable ramp, and park it next to 
one of the smaller extensions, then get a vehicle and jump onto the extension, 
but the helicopter is just so much easier, considering you need it for at 
least one package in this area... why not use it?

Congrats! TANK! One more prize to go!

91. Remember in #90 I described two loading bridges? Well now we are 
concerned with the other one. The package isn't on it though, it's on a 
plane on the other side of it. You can't land in the same place you did on 
#90 for some reason. It's mostly intangible. In fact, there are a few parts 
of this extension that are intangible so I didn't risk any of it. What I did 
was pull a packer (basically large ramps on wheels) up to the connection 
between this plane and the loading bridge. Then I just walked up the packer 
onto the connection, and jumped on the plane. I experimented with several 
methods of getting this package using a helicopter, and couldn't get them to 
work. It also looks feasible to use a nearby ramp to jump a bike up onto the 
bridge, but the packer is easier I'm sure.

Update: I've heard from a few people who have been able to get #91 by landing 
on the plane and other variations. Might be worth trying when looking
for this package. Mostly people have been able to land on the plane 
perpendicular to the body, but I can't get this to work. I've had a lot of 
people tell me this, too many to credit any one person. Thanks all!

Update: Heh, it appears that the second terminal is not intangible, you just 
sink into it a bit. Thanks for the info Aaron!

92. It's almost directly under #91. It's under the same plane, very easy to 

93. Directly west of the plane from #91 & #92 there is a plane halfway out of 
a hangar. #93 is under the wing.

94. North of #93 there is a fire station. It has an antenna on top, it's 
impossible to miss. This package is on the west side of the building.

95. Now head inside the main terminal. Either entrance is fine. Just follow 
the large window around to the right. This package is where the window begins 
on the right hand side.

96. Now you will need a helicopter again. (You can of course reference the 
section "Where can I find a helicopter?" at the bottom.) This package is on
top of the main terminal. The terminal is basically three hills and two 
valleys. This package is western valley. Land carefully so that you can keep 
the helicopter as you proceed, it just makes things easier for you.

While I still like doing this with the helicopter, it's been pointed out to me 
that you can jump up here with a motorcycle using the sign with the surfboard 
as a ramp. Thanks jvecch20!

97. Go back into the main terminal. Climb the escalator and enter terminal 
1-8. There are only two terminals so if you find the wrong one just go to
the other. Enter and go as far as you can. At the dead end turn around and 
you should see this package.

98. As you exit the airport and head to the east there are a series of 
billboards The package is behind those billboards... but from your current 
perspective they are behind a fence. You can get back there many ways.

 1. The long way. - Go around the fence. It takes a while as the fence turns 
    into a wall. If you want to do it this way head south to the edge of the 
    fence, then east through the grassy area. Cut north and then immediately 
    west once the wall ends. Now follow the billboards north to the end and 
    you should reach the grassy area with the package.
 2. Fly. - The best way, if you still have the helicopter.
 3. Jump. - There is a gap in the fence, but you need to jump a bike up there, 
    the slanted wall acts as a ramp.

99. This one is at 'northeast airport' as it has been called. The entrance is 
opposite the entrance to the actual airport. Head around the back and you 
should see two planes. The package in question is under the plane to the west.

And, finally...

100. This one is pretty easy actually. North of the 'northeast airport' is the 
army base. This package is behind it's sign. If you have trouble finding it I 
suggest using your helicopter.

And you get... a load of money and the mystery vehicle... THE HUNTER! 

Now, SAVE!

Questions Answered
Where can I find a helicopter?

There is a police station on the north side of the second island that has one
on the roof. Just climb the stairs behind the building, go up the ramp, and
it's yours.

After you get package #80 you can always pick up a Sea Sparrow behind the
Diaz mansion. I like the Sea Sparrow best because you can change radio
stations, and it has a nice wide landing base.

Another good suggestion from Talen:
"When traveling over the bridge from prawn island to the downtown area
there is a TV Network building on the right. If you follow the guard
rail on the right side it ends in front of the TV station and there is
an open door just on the other side of the rail that will put you on top
of the station with their helicopter."

What is the difference between this guide and the Brady guide?

The Brady guide does an excellent job of telling you where each package is
found, but it doesn't tell you how to get to any of them. Also, it does have
a few errors, they are very minor.

I can't find package #X, why? I know I'm in the right spot, but it's just not

I've had a LOT of people ask me this, so I felt I should address it. Please
note that if you use any cheat, even a minor one, problems with the packages
have been known to occur. If that's not the reason, then I really don't know 
what it is. I wish I could help with these, but I've known of at least 5 people 
that have gone through the guide and found all 100.

I can't find package #x, why? I have no idea if I'm in the right spot.

Some of the packages can be hard to spot. I don't mind answering E-mail about 
the locations, but please have a look before E-mailing me.

Is http://bradsnet.net really your web page?

Yes, but it has nothing to do with this guide. Please don't E-mail me just to
ask me this.
