Do you like to visit places with a history? If you know how to snorkel, you could actually visit this incredible wreck in the Bahamas. Sitting about 10 feet below the surface lies one of the infamous cartel leader Pablo Escobar’s drug smuggling planes. In 1980 this Curtiss C-46 Commando military plane crashed while transporting drugs for Mr. Escobar. While on it’s way to the U. S. this WWII-era plane missed the runway and landed on a sand bank in shallow water. The “cargo” was quickly recovered before the plane was abandoned. The plane soon sank into the water and Escobar never made any attempt to recover it. It has been abandoned on the ocean floor ever since.
