06 Mar Pablo Escobar Tour – Hacienda Napoles
Experience one of Pablo Escobar’s most precious properties in Colombia at the Hacienda Napoles. Located three and half hours from Medellin, Hacienda Napoles covers an area of 8 miles and has a range of different activities available to you. Back in Escobar’s heyday, the property was extravagant with exotic animals, helicopters, planes, a Spanish colonial mansion, and many other expensive toys. The Spanish mansion is still on the property today, but has been ravished by an assault of citizens who are looking for lost and buried fortunes believed to still on the land.
Today the property is owned by the Puerto Triunfo government and has been turned into an amusement and water park, zoo, and historical area, with some of the exact animals that were there when Pablo roamed the property. One of the biggest stories to come out of Hacienda Napoles is the hippopotamus population that has taken the surrounding area by storm. The hippos, smuggled from California by Escobar, have thrived in the environment and began spreading to other local rivers and watering holes after the home was left neglected. There is also Escobar’s private runway on the property where he used to land his personal planes that carried around his narcotics.
Hi Medellin’s tour picks you up from your accommodation in a private air-conditioned vehicle, with a bilingual guide (if necessary) and offers light refreshments along the way. Once we arrive to the entrance of the park, your guide will go over the game-plan in getting the most out of our day at Hacienda Napoles. Your entrance fee is included in the price of your tour, but you should still bring some extra pesos for anything you might want to buy as a souvenir or add-on tour available at the park.
As you will notice when at the property, Pablo Escobar knew no bounds when it came to his wealth. Escobar’s Hacienda Napoles makes Michael Jackson and Donald Trump look average at best, and we all know the extraordinary life they live(d). You will not want to miss an opportunity to check out one of the most important Pablo Escobar headquarters on your trip to Medellin.
