There are two incorporated cities in Los Santos: Davis, Del Perro.The city is served by the Los Santos International Airport, which is one of the busiest airports in the world. Los Santos also has an extensive transit system that reaches all throughout the city.Los Santos serves as the County Seat of Los Santos County, and is the Principal City of the Los Santos Metropolitan Area.
