Pablo Escobar Mansion in Tulum: The Legendary Casa Malca
Tulum, Mexico, is maybe not the first place you think about when talking about Pablo Escobar. In reality, Pablo had one of his mansion exactly here when Tulum was still a little local village without luxury hotels and restaurants. His mansion, today called Casa Malca, became a luxury hotel, a few steps away from the beach, with a particular attention to art. So, if you are a big fan of the series Narcos, where Pablo is the main character, and you love Mexico and art pieces, you should really consider spending your stay in one of their great rooms.
Mexico and Pablo Escobar, the king of drug traffickers
Let us share with you a bit more about Pablo in this guide. Pablo Escobar, originally from Colombia, became one of the most famous drug dealers during the 70s. He quickly became the lord of drug dealing between South America and the United States. Escobar made a lot of money out of drug trafficking of the white powder, cocaine. He invested primarily in real estate, but he also acted as sponsor of charity projects and soccer clubs which earned him a certain degree of popularity and political standing, including a seat in parliament. It was in those years that Pablo bought this mansion on the beach coast of Tulum, in Mexico, far away from the idea that his mansion will become a luxury contemporary art hotel one day. Escobar was shot to death by members of a special police unit in 1993.
