Meet Clara in Esperanza
This is one of the operations associated with Esperanza, the capital of Yara. You will unlock it while dealing with other operations (main missions). We don't recommend rushing into this quest, because Esperanza's default rank is 7 (it can also increase as you progress through the campaign). Try to at least your rank (level) equal to the current city rank.
You can reach Esperanza from any direction, but expect to encounter numerous smaller and larger outposts along the way. You can either avoid them (you will likely have to get off/on the main road) or fight the soldiers you encounter.
After reaching the indicated place on the city map, you must locate the Mercurio Mecanico guerilla hideout. The entrance to it is shown in the above picture - it is a metal gate on one of the streets in the center. You can optionally look around the hideout or get straight to the meeting spot with Clara and Juan.
Plant explosives at checkpoints
3 explosive sites will be marked on the Esperanza map. Reach them on foot by following the streets in the city's center. Use your phone (for reconnaissance) and follow radar indications. You should watch out for Secret Service snipers, as some of them may be positioned on the nearby rooftops.
In each of the locations marked by the game, you must find the yellow highlighted spot for placing an explosive charge - hold down the interaction button.
There is a tank parked next to one of the checkpoints - use stealth so that none of the enemies decide to jump into the tank and start using it. You would then have to quickly plant a charge or sabotage/destroy the tank.
Rendezvous with Juan
Juan is staying on the roof of a building adjacent to the hotel. Follow the side streets and expect to encounter at least one enemy patrol - take them by surprise.
When you get close to the mission objective, look around for the interactive grappling point on the roof. Grab it and climb up to meet Juan - watch the explosives you planted earlier explode.
Secure the hotel lobby
Use the rope to jump off the roof and head towards the main entrance of the Paraiso Hotel.
You have full freedom of action - you can defeat soldiers from the lobby in direct combat or by using stealth attacks. Watch the radar and remember that you need to secure the ground floor and the first floor.
Go to Anton's penthouse suite
To use the elevator, you will need a key (Executive Elevator Key) - you can find it in the lobby on one of the desks with a computer. Once you get it, reach the elevator and use it to trigger a cut-scene.
Escape from Hotel Paraiso
Once you regain control of the character, Heat will begin - your task is to get out of the hotel building.
Follow the corridors eliminating single enemies (you will also find an ammo stash). You will reach the garage where the President's limousine is parked. Use it to escape from Esperanza.
The operation will theoretically end when you leave the garage, but make sure you also get out of Esperanza and lose the chase. You can hit individual opponents along the way but you should avoid major crashes. Focus on driving fast to get out of town. You can then wait in hiding until the yellow Heat bar (visible next to the radar) drops - the chase will end.
