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.
