Drug Trafficker Sandra Ávila Beltrán

Sandra Ávila Beltrán, also known as “La Reina del Pacífico” or “The Queen of the Pacific,” rose to power in Mexico in the 1970s. At one point, she was so wealthy she carried around suitcases containing millions of dollars in $100 bills. She was a third-generation drug trafficker in her family.

Earning Respect

Earning Respect

Ávila was known for stocking tuna boats with 10 tons of cocaine and shipping the product from Mexico’s Pacific coast to the United States. She started her stint as a drug kingpin (or should we say queenpin?) in her early 20’s. She was a quick learner and earned the respect of those around her. One rule she always followed–never using drugs herself. She told the Guardian in a 2016 interview: “If you do it, the men think you are just another disposable woman, you won’t be respected.” She was unusual in that world because most women around her were treated as objects used for sex.

Assassinations, Kidnapping & Eventual Arrest

It only took about 10 years before Ávila became the Queen of Cocaine. She counted among her friends “El Chapo” Guzmán and married two times — ex-police commanders who became drug traffickers. Both were assassinated. She spent lavishly and enjoyed her power until the early 2000s when her son was kidnapped. She became a big target after she paid the $5 million ransom and went on the run. In 2007, she and her Colombian cocaine dealer boyfriend were arrested. She was convicted of laundering money for billions of dollars linked to drugs smuggled from Colombia to Mexico. She was released in 2015 and lives in Guadalajara.
