In Belize, active lifestyles can opt to visit archeological sites and Mayan Ruins, hike and swim through caves, ride horseback through the rainforest, explore the Jaguar Reserve, troll along the outer cayes, and snorkel Belize’s Barrier Reef (the second largest in the world).


Besides the ever-popular destinations for property purchase include the islands of Ambergris Caye and Cayo Espanto are up and coming destinations such as Blackadore Caye where Leonardo DiCaprio recently unveiled his plan to build an eco Four Seasons resort that includes an exclusive collection of private villas.


The 104-acre island will include a spa, bar, swimming pools, restaurants and eco friendly touches like a solar panel powered landing strip for planes. According to privateislandsblog.com, “DiCaprio intends for the eco luxury private island to serve as a benchmark for testing innovative “green” technology and natural energy sources such as water, sun and wind… What will make this resort unique is the eco friendly way in which the resort will be developed.


Efforts are being made to ensure that the buildings are integrated into the local landscape to avoid disruption of the local flora and fauna. Along with hybrid, wind and bio-diesel power systems, several arrays of solar panels will be installed to provide power to the resort. The journey to this point began in 2004 when DiCaprio discovered the island on a trip to Belize with girlfriend Gisele Bundchen. DiCaprio purchased the island for 1.75 million in 2005 in partnership with Jeff Gram owner of the exclusive Cayo Espanto Resort. Together the two began working with Four Seasons Group to develop what will soon become the exclusive and environmentally friendly Four Seasons Blackadore Caye. DiCaprio along with the Four Seasons plan to turn the 104 acre tropical island situated off the coast of Belize into a five-star resort.” – from Luxury Living International

from a friend....

He bought the place back in 2005. In 2007 some outfit affiliated with him released this development video with computer graphics of the plans:

But it's now nearly five years later and there is nothing. So you wonder if they are ever really going to do anything.
