PABLO ESCOBAR HACIENDA LA RUIZA

LA RUIZA
LA RUIZA

This is a journey back into the 1980’s, one of the many Hacienda’s Pablo Escobar had in Colombia. A lovely destination that is exactly like it was when he lived there. Private tours of the inside can be arranged at an extra charge. To visit the Hacienda we can arrive by horseback and ride through the streams and mountains that were also part of his land. For those who do not want to ride horses we can go by car. The pool is available for swimming and lunch can be arranged on the private wrap around balcony that overlooks the swimming pool. See the natural pool that had an underground bunker where he escaped when the military surprised him. See the stables and the grounds of this once lush estate. A journey back into time for those who love history.

El Paraiso is a must see if you have read the book Maria by Jorge Issacs. A grand Hacienda where he wrote the book. A lovely place to see how Colombians live in the late 1890’s with gorgeous roses everywhere. You can dress up in old time clothes and get photos made to take as a souvenir.
