A lot of people around the world have heard about Pablo Escobar, one of the most representative leaders of the cocaine cartel. If you have heard about him, you definitely have seen some movie, shows, a documentary, or even the news and you know what he did. You are going to learn about how he became one of the richest people in the world and how he started in the world of crime. You are going to experience a live documentary with this tour and instead of watching it on your TV or PC; you will be there, in the same scene. You will be able to see the locations of the events like his death, where he lived, and the cemetery where his body rests right now. Nothing can compare to this.
You are going to know real information about how his political and criminal career was. Information like the number of people that he killed, the ones he ordered to kill, and the cruel ways he liked to execute his plans.
He was an incredibly rich person, so it is not a myth that he had the capacity to own almost anything he wanted and it is not a surprise when we will talk about his zoo too.
Will you be surprised if I tell you that Pablo Escobar built an entire neighborhood? IF you are, this is absolutely the kind of tour you want to do.
What about La Comuna 13? This is a zone in the west of Medellin made of neighborhoods and other sectors. Comuna 13 around 15 years ago was suffering because of violence, illegal armored groups were all around fighting for territories but now, let me tell you, it is one of the most beautiful locations in Medellin. They are proof that any problem can be solved, no matter how hard it is.
Right now it is completely transformed and is world-famous for its streets marked with beautiful graffiti. It is a neighborhood fully recovered and you will have the opportunity and the pleasure of seeing all that positive change. Another innovation that you are going to enjoy is the largest opened-air electrical escalator in America. A great reference point to see how different it is to live there nowadays!
Update to Tour: You will now also get to try your hand with a can of spray paint to create some of your very own personal graffiti!
