Ismael Mario Zambada García, also known by his nickname “El Mayo”, is a Mexican drug trafficker who, along with ““El Chapo” Guzman and “El Azul” led the Sinaloa Cartel.

The DEA considers him the most powerful capo in Mexico. However, despite this notoriety, his whereabouts remain hidden. Up to USD $15 million are being offered for him.
