Pablo Escobar’s mansion became a hotel
Colombian Pablo Escobar remained in history not only as the head of one of the most powerful drug cartels, but also as a person with extraordinary wealth and extravagant taste. He owned a private zoo with hippos and zebras, and once burned a million in cash in the fireplace, only to warm his daughter while they were hiding from the police in one of his many shelters. He also owned several outstanding estates - in one of them and opened no less outstanding hotel.
Hotel Casa Malca is located in the coastal city of Tulum, Mexico, in one of the houses that were once part of the drug empire of Escobar. The building was restored and turned into a hotel with 24 rooms. Now he belongs to a New York art dealer named Lio Malka.
Room rates start at $ 1,400 per night. Guests will be able to enjoy not only the objects of art hanging on the walls (there are, for example, the originals of Jean-Michel Basquiat), but also an underground pool with a steam room, as well as a private beach.
