Casa Tranquila is the nursing home and assisted living facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where Hector lived after his nephew Tuco was killed.


Better Call Saul

Jimmy waltzes into a retirement home, dressed in a linen ensemble. He works the room, shaking hands and charming potential clients as they snack on cups of gelatin that have his new slogan printed on the bottom: "Need a Will, Call McGill!" ("Alpine Shepherd Boy")

After his stroke, Hector is moved into the nursing home, where he is visited by Nacho and Lalo. ("Wiedersehen")

Breaking Bad

After crossing the border, the first thing the Cousins do is to visit Hector at his retirement home ("Caballo Sin Nombre"). For its part, Gus frequently visited Hector in the facility to taunt him about his revenge on the cartel. ("Hermanos") ("Crawl Space")

With the purpose of exacting final revenge on Hector for his recent meeting at the DEA office, Gus approaches Casa Tranquila with determination. Unbeknownst to him, Walter had coordinated a separate plan to take down Gus which resulted in Tyrus's, Hector's, and Gus's death. ("Face Off")


  • "Casa Tranquila" in Spanish translates to "Home of Tranquility". This is fitting for the not-so-tranquil ending of "Face Off".
  • Casa Tranquila is featured on the DEA evidence board. On the board, the DEA has written that the "blast radius suggests an improvised device at the center of the room, most likely equidistant from the three people inside" and that "Ballistics indicate the device was attached to Hector Salamanca's wheelchair."[1]
