Rico Suave, Jr. (born May 30, 1994) is the manager of his shop, an outdoor concession stand located on the beach near the Stewarts' home.


He is a trickster who is great at getting revenge (most of the time). He and Jackson have an off and on friendship. In the second season he also attends school with Miley, Lilly, and Oliver. He generally acts as the main antagonist in season 1, He generally acts as the main protagonist in season 2, season 3, season 4, and is the only major character to not know Miley's secret. But he later found out in the final episode. Rico comes from a very wealthy Latino family. His billionaire parents are often mentioned but never seen (though in one episode, the sound of his mother's voice can be heard on the phone). He has a sister, an almost identical brother named Mateo (Mateo Arias), a cousin named Teresa, and an identical Australian cousin nicknamed "Angus" whose real name is Alejandro Núñez Gonzalez Uberto Sifuentes (Moises Arias). He also has a grandmother who tried to help Rico get the recipe for Jackson and Oliver´s cheese jerky. Rico makes a brief cameo appearance in Hannah Montana: The Movie at Lilly's birthday party. Rico has an innie bellybutton. He wears briefs. Rico also receives painful propeller wedgies from Jackson.


Rico is very gifted academically. He skipped a couple of grades in school and is in the same grade as Miley, Lilly, and Oliver, even though he is several years younger.  He is especially good at biology and mathematics, once finishing a biology mid-term exam in less than one second, with still enough time to recheck all of his answers.

As the result of a Napoleon complex, Rico uses his money, brains and/or influence to put other people down, or blackmail them into doing something they do not want to do. He also tends to pursue relationships with girls much older than himself in order to increase his social standing. He bribes both Miley and Lilly in this way.

In the episode "Cheat It," Rico runs a sauna company called "Señor Steam" which Robby patronizes.

Episodes that especially deal with Rico's character development include "Me And Rico Down By The School Yard" and "Get Down, Study-udy-udy."

Rico and Jackson are barely never at odds with each other. Rico is always getting under his skin and Jackson always fails to get him back.
