Ramada was actually Ramón Matta Ballesteros, a Honduran being held in the United States. Although he is killed by Pablo Escobar in the series, Matta is alive.

In April 1988, during a raid on his own home in the city of Tegucigalpa, he was kidnapped by United States Marshals and sent to the United States to be tried and convicted of the kidnapping and murder of Enrique Camarena Salazar on other charges suspected that his kidnapping may have been caused by treachery by Miguel Ángel Felix Gallardo to confiscate the routes he owned and ease DEA pressure for the murder of Enrique Camarena Salazar.

Matta is serving 12 life sentences at ADX Florence, a maximum security prison near the city of Florence, Colorado.

On December 7, 2018, the United States dropped charges in the murder of Enrique “KIKI” Camarena Salazar, who is expected to receive a reduced sentence or his release from prison and return to his home country of Honduras.

According to a 1987 study by Forbes magazine, Matta was worth $2,000 million. Matta, like many other drug dealers, gave away money and food to the poorest in Honduras and Colombia; He had so much money that he offered to pay his country’s foreign debt, Honduras, but the President, José Azcona del Hoyo, refused. Matta came to export 65% of Colombia’s cocaine to Spain, a country where he lived for several years, where he formed an alliance with two bosses of Colombia’s largest drug cartels.

According to a 1978 DEA intelligence report, Matta had become a business partner with General Policarpo Paz Garcia and had directly funded a “cocaine kingpin” in Honduras that brought Paz to power. It is believed that it was from this relationship that Matta became involved with the Nicaraguan paramilitary group known as Los Contras.

In January 2020, Ramón Matta Waldurraga, son of drug lord Ramón Matta Ballesteros, who was a partner of Pablo Escobar and now serving a life sentence in the US, was arrested at Bogotá’s El Dorado International Airport.
