In the early 80´s the so called municipal dumper called the attention of one man, who offered to donate more than 400 homes in order to create a positive impact on one of the poorest communities at that time. Those who moved out of Moravia, the old dumper, happily relocated to a new neighborhood they have proudly called Pablo Escobar as a tribute to the person who provided the funds and made history. This unique tour takes you around the Pablo Escobar neighborhood so that you can share interesting stories with main characters whose homes were dondated by the druglord.
Your bilingual driver will come to your door and then head towards the Pablo Escobar community on a customized journey by car with AC just minutes away. Get objective facts and info from community leaders and those who were rewarded a home by Pablo. There is enough free time to walk around and take the best postcard pictures, with convenient facilities where to use bathrooms or grab snacks at any time so we recommend bringing cash and/or Colombian pesos since not every store takes credit cards.
