We decided to walk to Casa Malca from a nearby hotel. Even though we had our GPS to guide us, it was kind of hard to find. We actually ended up walking a few blocks past the hotel because the entrance is disguised with no obvious signs telling you you’re there (it’s pretty well-hidden from the main road). The best way to find it is to look for a palapa hut and a faux train crossing sign. Since Pablo Escobar’s mansion is a trendy hot spot for photos, there is a food and drink minimum spend, which is 1000 pesos or $50 USD per person to go in if you’re not a hotel guest!
Once we made it in and walked towards the grand entrance, we passed by an enormous amount of extravagant tropical plants and sugar white sand stairs to the front steps of Pablo Escobar’s Mansion.😍
The grand entrance of the building is covered in tree bark, it feels like you’ve discovered a jungle castle in a secret garden.🤩🌴🍃 Just from walking up, the double doors reveal a picture perfect view of the ocean so clearly in the distance. You’ll also find gorgeous sequined curtains draping down giving it such an elegant effect. It feels like you’re in a jungle fairy tale and we haven’t even stepped through the front door!
We sat comfortably on their swinging tufted sofa and one of the servers came over to take our drink order. Before we went to Tulum we had heard that it was hard to get photos at Casa Malca (that they didn’t allow tripods or professional cameras) so we were nervous that the staff would give us a hard time about taking some photos, but to our surprise they were very welcoming and chill! One of them even took us up the white winding staircase to the rooftop! From the top of the tower, we saw the most incredible, serene views of the ocean!😍 The water was a gorgeous ombré mix of blue and turquoise, along with a 360-degree view of the Caribbean sea and jungle on the other side. During our visit they were in the middle of construction, and we were told that they were working on a rooftop bar/lounge. So we’ll definitely have to come back for, you know… research purposes. 😉
We loved the bar area, it has this really crazy black and white graphic wallpaper. And right outside they have some cool swings, which make for a good photo op!

We didn’t get to spend as much time as we wanted on the beach, but we did take a quick walk around where we found colorful hammocks hanging between palm trees, tropical huts, and cabanas lined up along the beach. Now we wish we were there relaxing and enjoying the ocean breeze!
