Medellín: The Real Pablo Escobar Tour

1. Medellín: The Real Pablo Escobar Tour

Begin your tour by visiting the site of Escobar’s former home, where he hid his family and had enemies plant bombs to kill him. Learn about the transformation of this site into a memorial park for victims of Colombia's drug war. Next, head to “la cathedral”, a jail Escobar built for himself in an agreement with the government, from which he later escaped. Afterward, visit the soccer field Escobar built, known for its visionary design, where he gave speeches in an attempt to make a foray into Colombian politics. To cap things off, make your way to the cemetery, where Escobar is buried along with his family and other members of his gang, including Griselda Blanco.  By the end of the day, leave the tour with a better understanding of the negative impact that Escobar had on the country and the lives of the Colombian people.

Daniel Jaramillo was the best guide! He made all the information interesting. He is a really good storyteller and knows a lot of history about the area. I learned a lot of new things about Pablo that I didn’t know before. I recommend doing this tour and also having Daniel as your tour guide!
