Casa Museo Pablo Escobar

Pablo Escobar, the son of a farmer and school teacher, led the Medellín drug cartel, which supplied an estimated 80 percent of the cocaine smuggled into the United States. Known as the wealthiest criminal in history, Escobar had an estimated known net worth of $25 to 30 billion dollars by the early ’90s.

In the 1970s, Escobar started his criminal life by kidnapping for ransom, before moving into smuggling for contraband smugglers. He soon graduated to setting up a distribution channel for cocaine himself while establishing smuggling routes to the United States.
