Pablo Escobar's Abandoned Bonaire Property 2013

Two friends of mine are on vacation and they took these photos on 10/15/13. I found them to be fascinating and thought I would share them!!

Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria (December 1, 1949*– December 2, 1993) was a wealthy Columbian drug lord and elusive cocaine trafficker. Before his death in 1993, he was investing his money heavily into real estate.

This is his property in Bonaire, which obviously didn't get completed before he met his fate. The tourism folks on Bonaire don't care to brag about it but the locals kind of do. The place is huge and has one of the best views on the island.

Photos courtesy of my two friends who are currently visiting Bonaire.

I was not able to insert the text under directly under each photo, so I apologize for the annoying format I have used.
I hope you enjoy!!


In the photos you will see various shots;

1.The hotel's nearly finished side

2. Unfinished area with damage from vandals

3. Unfinished area with a view

4. Pablo's castle

5. A view from the hole dug for the pool that was never put in

6. A view of the hole for the swimming pool from the hotel

7. The unfinished second story

8. The foundation that was to be filled with individual cabanas

9. Damage from vandals and time plus a cute dog!

10. A view from inside one of the unfinished suites

11. From the 4th floor

12. A view from the garden area. Now overgrown

13. 4th floor staircase with graffiti

14. The roof top where a spiral staircase would have brought guest up from the lower level suites to their private views.

15. Second floor looking down

16. View of the beautiful blue water

17. Unfinished suite/bathroom

18. Pablo's fate

19. Elevator shoot

20. Beautiful tiles

21. Beginnings of a pool or fountain

22. View from the best suite in the hotel

Re: Pablo Escobar's Abandoned Bonaire Property 2013

Bonaire is one of the premier scuba diving spots in the world. They have SEVERE boat restrictions in the area so almost no pollution. My friend goes every year. Thank you for the pics! Fantastic!
