One of Pablo Escobar's Former Mansions Has Been Turned Into an Incredible Hotel
Pablo Escobar: drug dealer, warlord and a man of infamously expensive and outrageous tastes. He built a private zoo full of hippos and zebras; buried millions because he had nowhere else to hide it, and once burned $2 million to keep his daughter warm while on the run. He also owned a few very, very nice houses, once of which has been turned into a very, very nice hotel.
Located in the Mexican beach town of Tulum, Casa Malca was once part of Pablo's powdery property empire, but has recently been renovated and turned into a 24-room hotel hotel by New York art dealer Lio Malca.
Along with the expected work by the likes of Basquiat on the walls, the hotel also features a hidden underground steam room (it can't be that hidden?) and its own private beach.
Oh you want to stay there? Rooms start at $1,400 (P70,775.60) per night.
Take a look at some pictures below to see why...
