You Can Now Rent Pablo Escobar’s Beachside Villa In Tulum
It doesn’t get any more bad-ass than this really, does it?
Now, we are not one to glorify drug lords, but let’s be honest Pablo Escobar is considered a legend by many (especially after the Netflix series ‘Narcos’).
Born of a peasant family he was one of the richest men in the world by the time he reached his peak. He clearly demonstrated a knack for business from a very early age.
With his riches, he decided to purchase a fancy beachside villa in Tulum, who can blame him! Have you SEEN the beaches in Tulum? He may have been a criminal but he definitely had some taste.
Rather than let his infamous casa fade away into the past along with his legacy, hotelier Lio Malca decided it was the perfect setting for a short-term escape.
About Pablo Escobars Villa – Casa Malca
As you probably guessed it wasn’t an easy feat trying to buy the home of a former feared and revered drug lord.
Malca had to do a lot of digging to find out who owned the property since it was seized. Once the deal was finalized the dreamy villa began to take place. At first, it was just a vacation home for him and his friends, with just 9 rooms. Since then it has evolved into a luxury hotel open to the public and it’s simply stunning.
Lio Malca is considered a prestigious artist amongst the art world, and his connections have served him well when it came to decorating the interior of this fabulous villa. Throughout the space, visitors will see works from Keith Haring, Basquiat, and KAWS.

Beaches & Pool
The beaches in Tulum are renowned for being some of the best in the world. This sand is white as snow, and the water is always turquoise. If you’re looking for paradise it doesn’t get more blissful and relaxing than this.
It’s the perfect retreat to rid yourself of any stresses that may currently be burdening you.
Just picture yourself waking up in this bed, opening your sliding doors, and making your way on to the sublime sands for your morning coffee.
If you want to take a time out from the tropics and humidity, retreat into this magical underground pool.
Or if you prefer to be outside, cool off in the turquoise waters beneath the palm trees.
Who wouldn’t want to stay here? If nothing else, who else can say they stayed at Pablo Escobar’s villa?
I can only imagine what it is like to roam the grounds and wonder what went on there all those years ago.
