Máximo is a renowned explorer of whom much has been written about.

He has traveled to the American frontier to hunt for treasure.

Events in Red Dead Redemption 2

Máximo is seen looking at a treasure map, frustrated with his inability to figure out the maps clues. When greeted, he will state that he has been hunting for treasure on the American frontier for the last three months and mentions that this part of the United States reminds him a lot of Almería in Spain. He plans on traveling to the island of Shikoku in the Japanese archipelago in search of the legendary Tokushima Sapphire, and because he pre-booked passage he has run out of time to find the frontier gold he was initially looking for. Because of this, Máximo offers to sell the treasure map with the location where the Jack Hall Gang’s gold is stashed to the player character.
