Pablo Escobar’s Former Tulum Mansion Is Now A Luxury Hotel

Fans of the Netflix series Narcos can now enjoy a slice of Pablo Escobar’s notorious history by staying at his former mansion in Tulum, Mexico. As you can imagine, it’s absolutely bonkers.

Acquired by art dealer Lio Malca in 2003, Escobar’s 24-room former holiday home has been renovated and converted into a luxury hotel named ‘Casa Malca‘.


The hotel has state-of-the-art amenities, an underground steaming room, a rooftop deck, a huge swimming pool, and a kitchen serving up five-star food. Not to mention the impeccably designed interiors and white, sandy beach at your front door.

Guests can stay in one of 26 rooms, or one of nine luxury garden terraces. Which begs the question: how big a holiday home did Escobar need?!


A swanky hotel is just the makeover this old gal was looking for, complete with wall-to-wall museum-worthy art from Lio Malca’s personal collection. It’s certainly more fancy than that Jack Kerouac poster hung up at your last hostel.

Rooms start at $490AUD per night for the junior garden view suite, so it’s safe to say that this place is a bucket-list-worthy hotel.
