Leonardo DiCaprio – Blackadore Caye
In 2005, Leonardo DiCaprio bought Blackadore Caye, off the coast of Belize, for $1.75 million, and since then, he’s been busy transforming it into an eco-luxury resort. Blackadore Caye is a 45-minute boat ride from Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport in Belize City. It can also be accessed via a 15-minute boat ride from San Pedro, the nearest big town.
Talking about the eco-resort he is developing on the private island, Leo has once told The New York Times, “The main focus is to do something that will change the world. I couldn’t have gone to Belize and built on an island and done something like this if it weren’t for the idea that it could be groundbreaking in the environmental movement.” Blackadore Caye was supposed to open in late 2018, but there is still no word on it.
