Description

Plot twist alert! Pablo who is a tour designed to bring to light the B side of the story that was never told by Narcos, grounded in actual facts of the story of the narco phenomenon of Colombia. This tour is not like the regular Pablo Escobar tours. The narrative and the stops that are visited focus on bringing you on a journey through the whole context of the narco era, the impacts on the environment and society and how that deep wound has been defining for the resiliency and  the whole social transformation that has made Colombia internationally known for.

How this tour creates Impact 

This tour has been developed in collaboration with the Memory Museum of Medellin, with the goal of educating and bringing diverse voices into the narrative of narcotrafic and violence. The optional addon is provided by Barrio Comparsa: Created by 4 victims of the conflict, this organization’s goal has been erasing the invisible borders created in part because of the drug trade in Medellin’s periferic neighborhoods. With parades and theater, they create moments of katharsis and social integration.
