Departure & Return
Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.
What To Expect
Along with a guide ho specializes in cartel knowledge, visit key locations and monuments from Escobar's life, including a church used by Escobar and his men to obtain “blessings” for bullets they planned to use in hits and one of Escobar’s favorite eateries. You’ll also see the house where Escobar was finally murdered by the authorities and the cemetery on the outskirts of town that houses his remains.
Upgrade to visit 'La Catedral,' a hybrid “jail” and vacation complex where Escobar negotiated with the Colombian government to stay in order to avoid prison. Your driver takes you back to your Medellin hotel at the end of the tour.
