The Cayo Perico island is also the place of the titular event, but you may be questioning what exactly it is you need to do to get to Cayo Perico and how to start a new heist. Check below to find out how to start the GTA Cayo Perico Heist.
How to get to the new Cayo Perico island
There are some preparations you’re going to need before you start the Cayo Perico Heist. You’re going to need a lot of spare cash lying around, too.
When you first get into GTA following the update, you should get a text from Miguel Madrazo who will ask you to meet him at The Music Locker in GTA Online, a new nightclub in Los Santos found beneath the Diamond Casino and Resort in East Vinewood. Go there first and meet with Miguel for a cutscene.
Once the meeting is ended, you’ll need to spend $2.2 million on the GTA Kosatka submarine which will act as your headquarters while you plan out the new Heist. If you think that price is very high, rest assured you’re getting a lot for your money and there are plenty of upgrades possible to make it more effective if you’ve got money to burn.
You can find your newly purchased submarine HQ on the map and the Services Menu will enable you to call a dinghy or a helicopter to take you to it if needed. Once you reach the Kosatka and step aboard, you’ll be welcomed with one more cutscene.
There’s one more condition before you can start the Heist—you’ll need to be either a CEO, President, or a VIP. The first two need you to own property, while the VIP option can be turned on via the Interaction Menu.
This is it! You’re now free to start building your plans and get begun on the preparation missions, such as seeking out the needed intel from the GTA Cayo Perico scope areas.
