How to leave Los Santos in GTA San Andreas

As the game begins, there is a restriction on transportation due to the destruction caused by an earthquake, with many roads about to be repaired.

At the same time, Officers Tenpenny and Hernandez warn you not to leave Los Santos, and violating any restrictions will automatically add wanted stars, drawing the wrath of law enforcement every time you go until you’re caught or killed.

Both restrictions are lifted after the story mission ‘The Green Sabre’, one of the most important missions in GTA San Andreas history.

This will require you to play at least a dozen missions first, but once you’ve completed them you’ll gain access to Flint County, Whetstone, and San Fierro.

While there is no problem allowing you to explore the entire map, you can beat the automatic quest level and then explore at your own pace by following a few steps at a certain point in the game:

  • Be sure to activate the 9th floor “Drive-By” mission, but don’t get in the car with the gang. Please note that you will not be able to repeat this quest unless you start a new game, which makes this process very specific.
  • Drive in another vehicle and head to the airport in the southern part of Los Santos, where there will be a dodo plane ready to be hijacked.
  • Steal the vehicle and fly from there to other regions.
  • That’s all! You won’t attract the attention of the police and you can explore as much as you want.
