Situated in Tulum on the edge of the Yucatan Peninsula you’ll find Casa Malca, a thirty-five room resort that locals swear was built by notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar in the ’80s. As much as we’d enjoy a stay in Pablo Escobar’s former mansion, that’s not even the biggest selling point of the five-star resort. Rebuilt, redesigned and completely redecorated by art dealer Lio Malca, this once private getaway blends modern works from his collection with a focus on creating individual spaces that all have a different feel. The entire property is set on a gorgeous private beach and each room has spectacular views of the ocean or the gardens. If the location and a stay in what is basically an art gallery isn’t enough, the amenities also include three different pools, a rooftop bar, Egyptian cotton linens, rainfall showers and complimentary Internet. It’s out of the way, but this beautiful spot is anything but off-the-grid.
If you don’t have a cigar cutter on hand when you want to light up a cigar you need to get all MacGyver with it. And since a cigar cutter isn’t part of the average everyday carry collection, this can happen often. Instead of adding another item to your already packed pockets consider having your knife pull double duty. The Cigar Cutter Pocket Knife packs a cigar cutter right in the handle. Pair that with the long-lasting AUS-8 stainless blade and you have a tool that will assist in small chores and in enjoying a cigar when you’re done with them.
